Commandment 3 : Do what makes you happy  

We are all going to die…

We are all going to die one day. Today, tomorrow, in a month, in fifty years …. Life is fragile. It’s a gift that can be taken away from us anytime. 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, a relationship that doesn’t work, or a personal situation that makes you unhappy …?

Can you see the common factor of those situations?

You can all change them just by acknowledging them and taking action. Even though it can be some simple steps toward change, many 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 that makes you sad.

Only you have the power to make yourself happy:

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. But at the end of the day, your happiness is in your hands. The more you’ll be happy, and by that, I mean truly happy inside, the more joy you’ll attract. Sounds cliche, but it’s true.

Remove negative things from your life:

My only “tip”, 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 worth it … If you can think about more negative than positive, you know what you have to do: take action and make things change! Find a new job or consider what can be changed in your current position to make you feel better!

Do what you want to do:

You’ve always wanted to learn how to dance? Sing? Boxe? Just do it!

Do you love to dress up? To create clothe? DO IT!

Have you got a passion you would like to share? DO IT!!!!

Just 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’s opinions of your life.

Doing what makes you happy will also help you to gain 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: Feeling of Happiness is contagious! I.e., you walk in the street and 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 react positively 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,
