What is The Key to Happiness?

Spread the love

To me, the key to happiness is finding purpose- a purpose that’s so much bigger than yourself, and contributing to it. Happiness comes when you answer a calling and make it your passion, purpose, and life’s work. Becoming an advocate for the bullied and tackling things about bullying that few people think about is where I get my happiness.

That purpose is informing others aspects of bullying that no one talks about and in that, helping targets reclaim their personal power. This is so much bigger than me. And it’s why it feels so rewarding!

Contributing to helping others more successfully battle bullying isn’t for material gain, fame, or fortune. It’s for my spiritual fulfillment. It’s the inner rewards I get. Rewards of the heart- knowing that this is making a difference and making the world a better place- even if just a little bit.

There’s no reward that matches that! I want to be the person I needed when I was targeted years ago.

Sure. Material rewards are nice, don’t get me wrong. And I certainly won’t turn them down if I’m ever blessed with them. I would love to make a good living doing what I love. After all, I’m human too.

But at the end of the day, the inner rewards- the rewards to the heart and spirit are more satisfying than I ever thought they would be.

It’s what keeps me going and it’s where my fulfillment comes from.

    For me, happiness is making something from nothing collaborating, creating and sharing…If it can help people…well even better.. I think this can come under your umbrella of finding a purpose bigger than yourself in life:)

    You are an inspiration and strength to so many, many people who have been and are being bullied. I can’t thank you enough. Truly, I can’t thank you enough! You and your blog have helped to save people like me from despair many times and given us the courage to keep fighting. Thanks to you is overflowing from me to you for all you do.Thank you.

    I enjoyed reading of your motivation, and thank you for sharing it. I very much agree that finding a purpose — and acting on that purpose — are key to creating happiness. A purpose brings the feeling of doing something valuable. Your post reminded me of this Albert Einstein quote: “We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life. All that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”

      You’re right. That’s another key to happiness. But first we must love ourselves before we can truly love others. We must be happy before we can make others happy. Happiness starts inside you, then it can radiate outward and spread to those you care about. When you’re happy, you naturally want to make others happy, especially those you care about. 🤗💖💐🌹💫

    One thing that makes me happy is reading the Bible daily. Mathew 5:3-Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need. Since the Kingdom of the heavens belongs to them.
