Self Understanding

I always wonder why people do what they do? Some people help others, and some just look out for “number one”. Funny part is that when people are looking out for number one, they seem to be unhappy. Yet, those who help others seem to be the happiest people in the world.

The key to happiness is self awareness. It’s important to help you choose your hopes and dreams. Some people will journal, others medicate, or just stay focused on helping others the best they can.

Remember, you can’t help everyone, but it’s important to stay open and help if you can.

First you start at home. You take care of your kids, grandkids, or pets. You develop your relationships with those that you love. If you don’t have kids or pets, well take sometime with the local food bank or other organizations that help others.

Most of us tend to live out the daily motions, rather than stopping and processing the experiences. We tend to spend more time engaging with others, that we forget we need to individually reflect. Whether you are content with where your life is right now or not, happiness is always something we could use more of. Happiness is not something that just happens, but is rather something that you choose.

My Grandson Christopher, who opened up a Christmas present. He had taken the gift out, but no one seen him, so he started laughing when he was asked if someone wrapped an empty box as a gag gift.

Life really is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you perceive it. Being aware and looking for the good things, and trying to find what makes you laugh, really makes a better you. Looking for those little things that you have been blessed with will make a big difference.

Self-awareness allows you to see your life through various lenses, perspectives, and possibilities. It embodies the opportunities to evaluate what should change, what new habits need to be formed, and the ultimate dreams you really do have for your life. The more aware you are with your conscious and subconscious, the more you know how you really feel about yourself. Knowing these things will push you to achieve goals you’ve only otherwise dreamt about. You will also learn more about yourself, and who you truly are.

Stop and spend time being silly, watch a sun set, and journal. Through this journey of life, you need to find what really makes you happy, so you can understand who you really are.

Take a pen and a journal and record your daily activities, emotions, and what you feel about each day. This will enable you to keep track of your tendencies and understand yourself better.

When you write about your feelings and identify what triggers certain feelings, you will be aware of negative thoughts as well as feelings. You will also be able to identify the reason why you are having those negative thoughts and find a way to prevent the negative thoughts from affecting your life.

In your journal think about what makes you happy. Ask yourself questions like:

  1. Who are you?
  2. When are you the happiest?
  3. What makes you sad?
  4. What makes you happy and puts you in a good mood?
  5. What inspires you, motivates?
  6. What makes you laugh?
  7. Be honest with yourself when asking these questions.

Once you find what makes you happy, then continue every day, asking yourself “What did I do well today? What can I do to improve on this tomorrow? What lessons did I learn from today’s activities?” And so on.

ask yourself questions like “What did I do well today? What can I do to improve on this tomorrow? What lessons did I learn from today’s activities?” And so on.
