You just can’t teach people to be happy.
They have to discover what delivers joy and it is usually not some big, expensive rich thing that many expect.
We often don’t know what makes us happy because we spend so much time dealing with that which doesn’t fulfill us.
Time off, meditation, a gratitude journal, getting in touch with those around us who are important – these are ways to avoid short-circuiting what really matters in our life.
Then, on to rewirement.
The changes that are required to set a new course.
We have to change our life’s circumstances.
Discover the things that deliver joy (have we even used the word “joy” lately?)
Teach ourselves to be thankful.
To motivate ourselves to make some changes.
To know what those changes are and be dogged in pursuing them.
Re-wirement is the personal process of changing how we think about happiness.
