Commandment 3 : Do what makes you happy
We are all going to die one day. Today, tomorrow, in a month, in fifty years …. Life is fragile. It’s a gift who can be taken away from us at any time. So yes, we are all going to die. I am not trying to make you feel depressed or sad. I am just talking about an inevitable fact.
Knowing that, you might think that everyone is doing everything possible to do what makes them happy right ?
In reality it’s definitely not the case ….
Can you say that you are truly happy in your life ?
If yes, MashAllah, like we say in my house.
If your answer is no, why are you not truly happy ? Maybe you feel stuck in a job you hate, in a relationship who doesn’t work, in a personal situation who makes you unhappy … ?
Can you see to common factor of those situations ?
You can make all change just by acknowledging them and by taking actions.
Even though it can be some simple steps toward change, lots of people don’t act and stay miserable. It’s not bad luck, it’s not something ineluctable, it’s your choice. Conscious or not. It’s your decision to stay in a situation who makes you sad. Only you have the power to make yourself truly happy.
Read this again : “ONLY YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE YOURSELF TRULY HAPPY” …. Read this again and again … I want this to sink in you !
Do you understand the power you’ve got in your hands ? You have the power to be happy. Nothing is stronger than that !
Plus, if you don’t make yourself happy, who will ? Honestly, if you’re waiting for someone to do it, I can tell you : you can wait a freaking looooooong time !
Although, some persons, situations will give you some moments of happiness of course. But at the end of the day your happiness is between your hands.
The more you’ll be happy, and by that I mean truly happy inside, the more happiness you’ll attract. Sounds cliche but it’s true.
My only “tips” if we can call it like this : Delete, remove everything that makes you feel unhappy from your life and focus on what makes you happy.
You hate your job and only live for the weekends ? Maybe you should ask yourself if it’s really worth it … If you can think about more negatif side than positif you know what you have to do: take actions and make things change ! find a new job or think about what can be changed in your current job to make you feel better !
You’ve always wanted to learn how to dance ? Sing ? Boxe ? Just do it
You love to dress up ? To create clothe ? DO IT
You’ve got a passion you would like to share ? DO IT
Juste live your life ! Do what makes you happy ! Don’t be bothered by what people might think. Life is way too short to be wasted worrying about people opinion’s on your life.
Doing what make you happy will also help you to gain in confidence !
Why ? Simply because when you do something you like you feel good. The more you do it, the better you feel and the more confident you become. It’s very logical isn’t it ?
Bonus point :
The Feeling of Happiness is contagious !
I.e : you walk in the street and then you see someone smiling, who looks very happy. Automatically you are going to smile as well. So, this stranger, without knowing it, made lots of people having a positive reaction to his smile. Just a simple smile ….
Stay true to yourself, deep down you know what you have to do to be happy.
“Do what makes you happy, be with the one you love, laugh as much as you breathe, love as long as you live” African proverb.
And Always remember : “Be confident, Be you”
Lots of love,
