Have you ever “lost” your happy?
Sometimes in life, we get tired. We get overwhelmed. We get knocked out.
But, are we down for the count?
Only time knows how we will react to the things that happen in our life.
There are so many times in life when I thought I was down for the count only to get back up again and again.
Sometimes because I rose up and sometimes because I was saved by the bell.
One of the hardest knock-out’s in my life was when I lost my happy.
What do I mean by that?
In my life, I have always had a jolliness about myself. I like to have fun, laugh, mess around, make jokes.
Are you like that?
Most of us are.
But what is one to do when they feel like the fabric of their being is gone.
What do you do when the fun-loving guy has lost that loving feeling?
Make people happy!
I know that sounds crazy but when I was empty the only way I figured out how to fill back up “my happy” was to fill others “happy” tanks.
When I lost my happy, I kept asking why am I not being blessed.
I wanted to know where all the blessings were. I mean come on. I’m a nice, friendly, loving guy!
Problem, I was focused inward.
Then, in a very crazy real-life story, my compass was recalibrated at an Indian reservation mission trip.
I have never forgotten that day. It was crazy amazing. If you see me at an event, ask me about it. I’ll share!
It wasn’t until I was told, that I realized I was to be “I was to be the blessing to the world”. When I did that, the blessings just started showing up and, I found my happy.
Because, I was focused outward.
Today, I’m talking about being happy but, it could be any emotion.
Not feeling grateful? Show your gratitude towards someone.
Not feeling loving? Love someone.
Want to see the blessings? Be a blessing.
Lost that happy? Focus on making someone happy.
It will only be a matter of time before you are back on track and feeling like yourself again.
