My Happiness Challenge Day 26

Sunday, July 16, 2017

Happy people... 26. Know what happiness is not. According to Buddhist philosophy, happiness is not dependent on an object or events, which eventually go away and replace a happy feeling with a sad one. It depends on a state of mind that feels those transitory emotions but also understands that change is life's only certainty. I don't do well with change. Sometimes I feel like I just get used to one change and I get hit with 3 more. This causes anxiety and feelings of being out of control of my life. But I am not in control of my life, God is. He has plans to see me prosper and not come to harm (Jeremiah 29:11). This scripture brings me peace. I know that God will give me the strength and ability to face the changes in my life and I should enjoy that assuredness more instead of worrying so much about the future. Happiness is a sense of tranquility. I am happy.
