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

A tailored suit fits you better than an off-the-rack suit that sticks out in odd places. Happiness is no different, as it doesn’t come in packages of guaranteed wellness. It is something you create on your own. You are to tailor your happiness and mold it the way you prefer.

But first, you should know the secret recipe for being happy.

The Recipe For Happiness

Though we have reached new heights of knowledge as civilized beings, a recipe for happiness still hasn’t been found yet. But is it really that unknown or is it hiding in plain sight? Maybe you are looking right through it. Sometimes you need to look a little harder at things around you. So, get your magnifying lens out as it’s time to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes.

You will notice that when pessimism is the first thing you wake up to in the morning, your remaining day becomes blue and gray, filled with doom and gloom. Being happy is the last thing on your mind. But when your day begins with a positive thought, you get the willpower to make your day a productive one. Throughout the day, you will be full of energy and when the day ends, you will go to bed with a smile of satisfaction on your face.

Keep It Brewing All-Day

Now you know the not-so-secret recipe for happiness. All it takes is a sprinkle of positivity, a dash of determination, and a surge of energy to keep the potion of happiness brewing all day. While that may be all for the recipe, remember that kindness is the energy that powers it.

So, be kind and create happiness for others too. We are all social beings in this world, and kindness is the key to getting happiness for everyone.

Enjoy Your Potion Of Happiness

Well, it is time for you to enjoy the potion of happiness once you have finished the brew. A little heads up: side effects may include an abundance of bliss, a strong sense of contentment, and an irresistible urge to explore the opportunities coming your way.

If you follow these steps, you will soon relax comfortably in the happiness tailored to your actions. You also find that it fits you so much better, and now you can finally let go of your pursuit for ready-made happiness.
