Finding yourself and inner happiness.
I finally think I have found myself.
After many years of feeling somewhat lost, stagnant then complacent, to the complete oppositie of moving too much, and having no base.
I finally feel free.
I think I've found me.
I remember I used to think relationships where the answer. To settle down with someone and then I'd find myself.
But now I realise that you have to find yourself before finding someone else.
Because no one is going to love you if you can't love yourself.
I then started to believe if I moved to a certain place or kept travelling I would find my place. But I was soon to find out no matter where you go, you take yourself with you. Happiness doesn't come from a physical place. It comes from that place within you.
In your mind, your heart, your soul.
It truly is your relationship with yourself.
Once you become happy in your mind, you become happy with everything in your life.
I am starting to realise what actually matters in life. It's not expensive holidays or the amount of numbers in your bank.
You realise how good friends, family and love means so much more than any matetial worth.
I am happy with me! I am happy with my life.
Having the tendency to be a perfectionist I always strived for the unattainable, the perfect. Yet, this is a big cause of unhappiness because chasing perfection is chasing something endless, something that doesn't really exist.
You have to realise to be happy in the present moment is what matters. Be happy with what you have right now.
I may not have the 'perfect' figure I am striving for. But I am me and I am happy in that.
My body is healthy and full of love. That means more than being a certain shape or size.
I may not have a 'perfect' relationship with somebody. But I have a good relationship with myself. I am at peace with my mind, I am happy to give lots of love to people in the world. And truly I need nothing more than I have in this very moment.
If I were to die right now, I would die full of love and gratitude.
The love of my family and friends is overflowing. The kindness of everyone in my world is indescribable.
Thank you ❤.
To love is true happiness. Not even to be loved, this becomes seeking something. Giving love is what life is all about. Become vulnerable, become open, become free.
Things may not always work out as you want or expect them to, but they always work out for a reason.
Wherever you are right now is exactly where you are meant to be.
I have full and utter faith that the Universe is giving me exactly what I need right now.
My wish for you is that life becomes all that you want it to.
May your dreams stay big and worries stay small.
I know the Universe won't make you carry more than you can hold.
And while you are out there, seeking what you seek, getting to where you are getting to, I hope you know someone loves you and wants exactly the same things too.
