I'll Be Happy When...
Until you are happy where you are and leave peace where you are, you won’t find the peace you will take the unhappiness with you.
Any of this sound familiar?
“I’ll be happy when I lose 10 pounds”
“I’ll be happy when I get that promotion.”
“I’ll be happy once I have kids.”
This is actually called the "I'll be happy when" syndrome – or Conditional Happiness. It’s the belief that you only can attain happiness “when” you do something specific, obtain something of a particular value, or experience a certain life event. If you can’t be happy without it, your happiness becomes conditional on obtaining that one certain thing…therefore you cannot be unconditionally happy.
What’s your “I’ll be happy when” statement? And WHY ARE YOU NOT LETTING YOURSELF BE HAPPY NOW?
Conditional happiness prevents us from feeling fulfilled and living our NOW life to the fullest. What about unconditional happiness? Where you’re happy no matter what external events are happening in your life, no matter how much further you need to go to reach your goal and happy regardless of the current situation.
Maybe you think being unconditionally happy makes you oblivious to the steps needed to achieve your goal. The toxic positivity we keep hearing about that won’t allow you to analyze the road ahead properly.
If you’re looking for a reason to feel guilty about your life, you’ll find it. But don’t blame happiness.
If you’re looking for a way to self-sabotage your success, you’ll find it. But don’t blame happiness. Happiness is not a detriment to your success. To your goals. To your life.
In fact, it can be a foundation! – if you allow it.
You’re allowed to be happy. Say it out loud: I am allowed to be happy.
Be happy now – but how do you do that? It’s actually very simple! Enjoy the present… and enjoy YOURSELF in the present!
VALUE the present…. And add value to it!
Release the future!
Instead of waiting for life to happen, just let it happen!
Let’s clear up all the confusion around happiness so you can put some clear and happy vibes out to the people around you and to the universe! Dig deeper into this concept by checking out my podcast on this very topic!
