Searching for Happiness? Know Your Heart.

“Devote yourself to what gives you meaning.”- Morrie Swartz

I have a question for you today. Do you love what you do now?

If your answer is Yes, that is great! I am happy for you!

But if your answer is NO, then why do you do it? For whatever reasons you may have, I want you to consider deeply if it is worth sacrificing your chance to live a happier life.

I believe that God has bestowed upon each one of us talents and abilities. It is our duty to unlock, develop and utilize them. If we love something and we have the talent and the ability to do it, then we owe it to ourselves to pursue it. If we are scared to move out of our comfort zones, then we are compromising our chance to truly live a joyful life.

We only have one life. I think that the best way to live it is by doing the things that give us fulfillment, purpose, and satisfaction.

I like how Barbara Sheer put it: “Happy people have two things in common. They know exactly what they want and they feel they’re moving toward getting it. That’s what makes life feel good: when it has direction, when you are heading straight for what you love.”

In decision-making, it is not always wise to think logically. Sometimes, in order to live a happier life, we must learn to listen to what our hearts say. Remember: Where your heart is, that’s where your treasure would be!  If you don’t trust me, I’m sure the internet could provide you a list of inspiring people who followed their passions and found amazing success!:)

  1. How inspirational. Following our heart and passions is all that we do is the key to happiness and contentness. If anything is done simply out of duty or compulsion, then it ends up feeling burdensome. Great post!

  2. Good post..Ive written several posts on this topic., and also taught entire counties of educators on how to help their students to differentiate between your gifts and your skill sets ..one brings peace while the other is likely a learmed asset but brings no more then a paycheck

    1. Thank you for your comment. I agree with you. We have certain gifts or abilities that are innate to us, different from those that we acquire. Learning to focus our energy in enhancing our gifts is one of the ways to be successful!

  3. This is a lovely post and very true. I find that writing poems, being in nature, jogging, travel and singing in my gospel choir makes me really happy. I feel grateful to have these outlets. Keep writing! We have two bunnies and they feature on today’s post of my poetry blog in case you have time to look? Happy Friday! Sam 🙂

  4. I love all the quotes that you have used! I also definetly agree with this point, for example, blogging is something i love to do but because of fear of what my friends would say i held back but then i read many posts like yours and realised like you said, i won’t be able to be happy and live life fully if i don’t step out of my comfort zone! Great read x

    1. Thank you Beth! I was hesitant to blog too at first, but then I realized that I’m doing this more for myself and not to please others. People may agree or disagree with what I write but that’s a reality- we can’t please all people. I think it matters more that we do what makes us happy! ☺ Good job in pursuing blogging! 😊

      1. I think all bloggers are brave in the sense that they are opening themselves for criticisms once they publish their posts. That is why I respect all bloggers.
