Happiness Comes From 3 Things
In my last post, I established that my purpose in life is to be happy. So, below are my answers to what is happiness and where does it come from.
I believe happiness is tied to three things:
1) Gratefulness – It is not what you have, but what you’re grateful for that brings happiness. Happiness comes in direct proportion to how grateful you are.
2) Achievement of your values – We each have our own values. Some of us value family, health, the creation of a great song, piece of artwork or maybe landing a new trick, others might value an impressive job, fit body, likes on FB/Instagram or otherwise. Whatever it is that you value, your happiness is also in direct proportion to the achievement of those values.
3) Relationships – Human beings are social creatures. Even us introverts. I believe among our highest emotional needs is to be accepted or better yet, loved. Our happiness is a reflection of how healthy, strong and loving our relationships are.
Don’t worry, these posts will be more studio and music relevant real soon.
