Yesterday I had you check-in with your happiness-o-meter. How did that go for you? What did you learn about happiness in your life? It went so well for me I’ve decided to keep the momentum going and deem today ON-TRACK TUESDAY!
What I learned from yesterday’s exercise is that I have a tendency to have happiness ups and downs and large portions of gray areas, plateaus or times when I’m not aware or paying attention. And, I learned that that’s OK! It’s the way I function.
Another thing I realized is that I have had a story about happiness, learned from my earliest days on this earth, that has had a major impact on the happiness in my life. My happiness story taught me that it’s important to parcel happiness out because there’s only so much to go around. The theme is something like this: “Happiness isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You can’t be happy forever. You’ve got to pay your dues. Don’t get too happy, because it’s gonna be really hard to deal with it when it’s gone.” So, as I thought it about happiness yesterday, I realized I’ve been afraid to truly embrace it because I DON’T WANT TO LOSE IT! I’m afraid it won’t last! That was a profound revelation for me. Instead of choosing to live in happiness, I think I’ve been pushing it away and living in fear! And when I do experience happiness, I make sure (sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously) that it’s only in little bits and pieces because then it might last longer and won’t be so bad when it’s gone.
And — here’s the REALLY profound connection and learning for me — this has shown up in other areas of my business and my life, too! It’s been the kind of relationship I’ve had with money, success, leadership, and in relationships.
