A personal toast to Canada's GNH Gross National Happiness
A personal toast to Canada’s GNH Gross National Happiness…
Feeling Happy, is your innate motivator and navigator. It’s like a built-in equilibrium and setting, that you can consistently rely on. Wanting to feel Happy, is the purpose and passion, underlying everything you do, the relationships you keep, and all that you seek to create, experience and accomplish. Happiness is why you dream and why you get up in the morning! Of course, we can share a lot of Happy positives, but in reality, Happiness is different in all of us, just because all of us, are different. You see it’s presence, in all the beautiful art, imaginations, ideas, curiosities and creations, and you hear it’s presence when you feel it stream, through music.
Feeling Happy, is yours, by design. Since we are all connected, of course, the joy is magnetic, contagious and subject to many degrees of separation. It’s thrill rate clobbers the killer rate of any virus except as it grows, it effortlessly breeds a lot more fruitful positives!!!
Lacking Happy or living too askew of your own likes and preferences, for long, extended periods, can disrupt your natural balance and flow and upset your entire well-being! It doesn’t matter who you know, what you’ve achieved, your title, bank account, or even all your appreciations, donations or gratitudes, nobody is exempt from quietly sliding, right down the rabbit hole!!! Attempting to hide or deny a lack of Happy, only invites more of the agony, and leaving it, to it’s own path of virtue, leaves the true perpetrator, at large, in many, many cases!
We’ve given A LOT of ourselves, to finding a Happy groove, in such a fast-paced, high-demand, rapidly-changing, high-performance world! The relentless pace, politics and plethora, we are living, is clearly threatening our joy, excitement and business. A lack of Happy is costly, intellectually, financially, emotionally, mentally AND spiritually. Our forefathers fought for our freedom, and after just one generation of modernization and ‘progress’, you may have… to march for your marbles! Marching to your own drum, is your best way to win any mindset battle!!!
The psyche of our nation needs a serious reboot!
Wanting to live Happy is a natural yearning. It’s your true, authentic power, that resides inside of YOU. It’s way more than just rare, fleeting moments, though it’s also, a use-it or lose-it program. Happiness is a choice YOU can trigger, in an instant, or sustain, as a lifestyle.
If you are, a little lop-sided on the external; frustrated with regurgitating head chatter; lack interest and/or motivation; or if you’re sick of feeling fear, anxiety or even depression, you may have to temporarily focus on your Happiness, just to regain, refresh and realign yourself, in a busy, chaotic world. Take it, as a gift and not as a heavy. It’s a call from your spirit to drop the scenarios and maybe the prescriptions … it knows who you are and exactly what you’re made of!!!
