How to Find Lasting Happiness


What is happiness and where do I find it?

Happiness comes in many different forms for many of us. Everyone wants to be happy in some shape or another. But when we want for something, it’s because we feel it’s something we are lacking.

As we listen, we may wonder how they could be unhappy despite being surrounded with so many blessings. When we look at them, we cannot fathom a person in such an environment to be unhappy.

What Would You Give Up $1.5 Million For?

As we live our lives in our little bubbles, we sometimes forget that there is more to this world than what we have become so used to. As we negate our greatest ambitions for nothing more than false hopes and dreams, there is always someone outside our bubble that is living that very life. A recent #BlogMastery Conference put together by Ricky Shetty (@tokyoricky) popped many bubbles that many people have barricaded themselves in. Through the various speakers, many attendees found themselves inspired and moved by the potential opportunities that lay before them.

“Find what inspires you. Then recreate it to see how it’s done.” Continue reading
