Be Your Own Happy

Be Your Own Happy

It really DOES involve taking care of yourself, you know. 

Instead of pushing other people to find out why you might be feeling the way you are now, turn inward.

You may fall apart, but maybe becoming your own happy requires that you fall apart in order to pull yourself back together differently.

Practice self-compassion, too.

To be your own happy, you may have to open your eyes to your patterns of being, of interacting and doing. This asks you to move beyond your comfort zone.

So...

Be curious.

Be courageous.

Be ok with being scared. 
(In fact, you might even try to do one thing scary every day! This one has bonus material for our brains, which like novelty and actually begin to function better when we stretch ourselves.)

With each thought, action and interaction you do differently, you'll learn better who you really are.

AND, you might be surprised to find you're proud of yourself for trying something different.




In the words of the poet Rumi:
"Be crumbled
So wild flowers will come
up where you are.
You have been stony for
too many years.
Try something different.
Surrender."

What happens when you surrender to NOW so you can 
BE YOUR OWN HAPPY?
