You assume that when it comes to following your “gut instincts,” happiness is “good,” and fear and pain is “bad.”
Happiness should come from within you.
Happiness isn’t a destination
You feel “lost,” which is just another way of saying you’re detaching from your old ideas about what your life should be, or what the future should hold, and so on.
Happy people spend time outside just for the sake of it.
They differentiate choosing a feeling and choosing an action.
Because they immediately see the humanity in everyone, they are able to love others unconditionally. They are more forgiving, accepting and open-minded.
Happiness is a collective phenomena: our emotional states are driven and created by those whose energies we are “open” to.
Essentially, we turn to Twitter more than we ever turn on a TV station (at a rate of 61%, specifically) and while this is likely increasing our awareness of what’s happening in the world, it is also decreasing our open-mindedness.
The only problem with your life is the way you think about it.
