Don’t want to wait for happiness anymore, baby steps count
Most of us have a picture perfect life we envision in our minds of true happiness- perhaps, when we get that dream job, that perfect mate, or that lavish house. We end up stuck in that anticipatory nick of time between where we are, and where we want to go. While there’s nothing wrong with being full of ambition, it’s utterly depriving to be in the present, yet lost in the future.
It doesn’t have to be like that though. You can learn how to truly enjoy what you have and where you are in life, as you stride towards your aspirations.
Happiness is a choice- a decision to want, love, and cherish who, and what you have in your life every single day. A few baby steps can revitalize and remodel you feel and outlook on life.
Steps to authentic happiness

At home and at work, seek out for experiences that give you pleasure, a sense of purpose and well-being. Whether it’s writing, drawing or meditating-whatever makes you feel inspirited and in tune with your inner self.
