Are You Happy?

You have the education, the right job, and you’re working your tail off. Why aren’t you happy?
Good question.

I read an article the other day in "Shape." It was talking about a woman that was going to take a new job. She told her teacher that it was the perfect job. If she put in her time, she could made good money, and could be very successful. After a few years, she planned to quit this job and move onto the job that she really wanted to do. The one that would make her happy, but for now she was going to put in her time and pay her dues.

Why can’t she be happy now?

Why can’t you be happy now?

Homework: write down several things that make you happy.

    Talking to your friends
    Playing with your kids.
    Getting some difficult task done.
    Hearing your boss say you’re doing a good job.
    Have dinner with your family
    Petting your dog.

Now, try to add them to your life. If you can’t eat dinner with your family, get up early and have breakfast with them. Put your energy in doing the things that make you happy.
