happiness does not have to be conditional

I'll be happy when I have a job I love.

I'll be happy if I am financially stable.

I'll be happy when I have a boyfriend.

I'll be happy if I lose the last 5 pounds.

I'll be happy when...

I'll be happy if...

Do you find yourself thinking these thoughts?  Conditional happiness.  It's extremely common in our culture.  It's also extremely limiting and hurtful.  You deserve more out of life!

Conditional happiness depends on things or conditions. It is usually materialistic or vain. Have you ever reached these "goals"? These conditions?  Were you really happy then?

I can answer that. NO. Not really.

Happiness does not, and should not, be conditional.  The truth is unconditional happiness is a natural state of just being content, a peace of mind that is often hard to put into words.

Wake up and just decide to be happy.  Make it a goal to just have a good day. And if you are not content with your current situation, decide to love yourself enough to take a step in a direction that will be better for you.

Leave the conditions behind.  Write them down and then crumble that paper up and throw it away!  You are exactly where you need to be right now and you are allowed to be happy and at peace knowing that alone.
