Four Simple Actions that Bring Happiness

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

Autumn is here.

The cooler temperatures and turning leaves is a reminder that change is in the air. As each autumn day passes, the sun sets a little sooner. Before slipping into the western sky, the sun reveals the beautiful world that has been created for you.

Like the autumnal equinox, our time here gets a little shorter each day, too. But rather than reacting in fear we are given the opportunity to see the wonderful things we have been given and then be perfectly happy in knowing that it doesn’t matter how short the days are becoming; what matters is how we are living in those days.

If you want to replace fear with courage or replace anxiety with happiness, make a commitment to do these four simple actions every day. When you do, your beautiful world will shine brighter – no matter what season it is.

Live
Live today. Today is about savoring every moment; it’s about appreciating exactly what you have. Today is about owning your life and being excited about what will happen next. Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin living.

Live right now.

Love
Love today. Tell or show the people who you truly love and cherish how much you love them. Do so with heartfelt sincerity. Love them as if this were their last day on earth. Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin loving.

Love right now.

Laugh
Laugh today. Our lives can be stressful and complicated at times, but that doesn’t mean laughter can’t fill the gaps in between. Perhaps if we can think of more reasons to laugh, the gaps might become further apart. Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin laughing.

Laugh right now.

Bloom
Bloom today. Open your mind to the possibilities that are waiting. Open your heart to whatever it desires. Open your soul to its purpose. Open up and bloom gloriously today. Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin blooming.

Bloom right now.
