Happiness, now

Thiiiissss! ๐Ÿ™ Happiness *is* success. If you're happy doing what you're doing right now, you're already successful ๐Ÿ™Œ There is no "I will be happy when I have X, Y, Z..." because we stay in the shackles of craving - the source of discontent - until we break free from our happiness being dependent on things we can't control โ›“ Use the gap between where you are now and where you aspire to be as inspiration, sure. But know that up there โฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธ is not where you *should* be. Right here โžก๏ธ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝโฌ…๏ธ in this very moment is where you *should* be. We're tricked into comparing our 'success' to the 'success' of others ๐Ÿ‘ฌ who might be gaining in status, money, possessions, but might be miserable or working for causes misaligned with their own principles. It's not for us to measure the true success of another human, only your own ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Living in a way that's aligned with our principles, in our jobs, habits and behaviour, feels rewarding and therefore leads to being happy doing what we're doing. = Success โœจ๐Ÿ˜„

So may "what you want" be for a purpose bigger than the self - and this begins with intention, which means we can start right now. โ˜บ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™
