Taking Responsibility for our actions is probably most difficult part of creating a life of happiness. I want you to pretend that someone who you blame for something is standing in front of you; now point your finger at them. What I never realized is that when I point finger at someone else, I have 3 pointing back at me. When I was able to really start looking at my part in things, growth that I went through was incredible. I felt as if I was stopping a cycle. And I did!!! By taking responsibility for my own actions and seeing where I was wrong, I was able to identify things that I did to other people, therefore I was able to truly make amends to them. By seeing my part, I changed a lot of behaviors.
Forgiveness is next step. For a detailed explanation of forgiveness, please see my article titled “Forgiving Unforgivable.” When I went through process of forgiving people that hurt me, I felt as if nothing in world could stop me from having happiness that I had longed for, for so long.
Giving back is final step in achieving happiness that you want. As I began to de-clutter my heart and get rid of all things that kept me in darkness, my heart felt full, I felt alive, and I felt like I had so much to offer world. That was when I first decided to start getting articles published, and I took steps towards getting books published, and I even wrote my first e-book. If people weren’t there for me to help me through this process, then I wouldn’t be where I’m at today. I can’t just ignore things that people did for me. Service work can be done in a number of ways. It doesn’t necessarily have to be being a candy striper at a hospital. There are a number of places that need volunteers. It could be visiting a nursing home, or just smiling at a cashier. It could be holding a door open for an elderly person or carrying their groceries to their car for them. What I have found is that by giving back what was given to me, I am able to keep things that I’ve achieved.
My hope for you is that you find value in some of steps above as well as my experiences. My hope for you is that you will finally discover happiness within you. My hope for you is that you will finally find freedom that you so deserve
