happy (comparative happiersuperlative happiest)

  1. Experiencing the effect of favourable fortune; having the feeling arising from the consciousness of well-being or of enjoyment; enjoying good of any kind, as peace, tranquillity, comfort; contented; joyous.
Confession: recently, I have not been happy.
I’ve been stressed, sad, grumpy…feelings of that nature.
I’ve been thinking to myself, “I sure would be happy if ____” [fill in the blank]
…I wasn’t taking classes.
…I had less responsibility.
…more of my friends were in town.
…I could take a vacation.
…I could get more sleep.
…I knew how to dress better.
…I knew how to do my makeup better.
…I had more money.
…I lost 10 pounds.
…I wore a smaller jeans size.
…I went to church more often.
…I saw my boyfriend more often.
But, ultimately, I believe that there is only one true way to fill in the blank:
I would be happy if I let myself be happy.
I keep thinking up all these scenarios that I think I would be happier in. I don’t ever think of how I can be proactive and be happy in my life right now.

proactive (comparative more proactivesuperlative most proactive)

  1. (proscribed) Acting in advance to deal with an expected change or difficulty
I’m going to stop treating happiness like something that I have to wait for to find me. I have to find it.
I know that I can look to the Lord for all things. I know that I can find happiness in Him. I’m still trying to figure this out.
Hope everyone has a happy week.
Peace and Love,
And Happiness,
