ARE YOU REALLY HAPPY???
In my opinion, it's both "SMART & SEXY" to be happy, joyful and fulfilled. With that said, as I was trying to come up with something unique, insightful and funny to post I stumbled across a so-called "happiness quiz" on the internet. You'd never guess what I found out!
OMGucci Loafers, I'm NOT always a Happy Camper!
I knew at times I could be a bit spastic and down right borderline ADHD, but NOT HAPPY!?! Give me a break! That thought never crossed my busy and overly occupied mine. Well, I'm glad to have taken this so called Happiness Quiz because I'm a big proponent of being truthful about where I am and where I want to go. I want to improve myself in order to be a better vessel God can use. Guess what else you may not have known about me? I'm really transparent! I'm not afraid to share and show my flaws, especially with those closest to me because I'm not perfect. And guess what? You aren't either! Wow, you never knew? (lol)
With that said, I will share with you some of what the results were from the questionaire, it said:
"You're not a very happy bunny are you? You try hard, you're well meaning, but inside you is that little voice that screams 'I'm not good enough'. In short, your lack of happiness is down to what's happening inside you - you never feel contented because you are always striving for maximum success and even if you reach it, you don't feel you deserve to enjoy it.
But happiness isn't something that you get just by hard work. Yes, reaching goals and getting where you want in life is important, but to be truly happy, you need to be at peace with yourself.
People who are at peace with themselves generally do much more and much better in life than those who try hard all the time. Learn to value what you do and you'll not only feel happier, you'll also be more effective."
I challenge you to look in the mirror and ask yourself today, "Am I happy"? The bible says "the joy of the Lord is our strength"....my question to you is What has happened to your joy?
Did you lose it when you constantly put your kids needs before yours?
Did you lose it when you constantly put your husband needs before your own goals and dreams? Did you lose it when you put the stresses of your job before your own need to breath, let your hair down, and not take yourself so seriously?
Today I challenge you to go to take the quiz.....just go to http://quiz.ivillage.co.uk/uk_relationships/tests/happy.htm
and take the quiz for yourself.
If there's something you don't like about yourself change it! You possess the power within to change it. Remember, "Greater is He who is in YOU....than he who is in the world". You can do it! It is possible!
In Pursuit of Happy-ness (like the Will Smith movie)
