What makes you happy? Is it something simple like when someone else makes dinner? Is it a reciprocated act when you share a laugh with a friend? Or, is happiness out of your grasp?
While working with writers over the years, I’ve learned that they often start sentences, “I’ll be happy when…” The end of those sentences is enough to make even the most positive person cringe. “When I reach best-seller status.” Or even, “When I sell a million copies.”
These are lofty goals and my guess is that while they may make some people happy, these aren’t necessary achievements in order to find happiness. Sometimes, we just need to adjust our perspective and give ourselves the pat on the back that helps us persevere and then we find it easier to obtain those goals.
I recently found this anonymous quote and it suits this subject perfectly.
Tranquility is beyond form, it cannot be grasped and held. It is beyond sound but perhaps within sound, yet it cannot be heard. It cannot be seen yet it lies in everything we see.
Evatopia’s motto is “Find Your Happy.” And if you don’t know the way to happiness, I’ve got a road map and I’m here to show you. Our Los Angeles creativity workshops are getting underway. Stay tuned for more details.
