“Oh! Careful with that container,” my friend, Sarah, said.
She carefully took hold of the plastic container and smiled. She said, “Macadamia nuts and chocolate— my happy place!”
Later, I thought about happiness. Some of us have rules that prevent us from being happy in this present moment.
Here are three insights.
- Listen to the hidden rules you have about happiness.
Have you heard a friend say, “When I get the new job, I’ll be happy”?
Really? One has a rule that one must have a new job to feel happy?
When you put rules on when you can be happy, it’s like putting up a brick wall between you and happiness.
I have learned that I can be dealing with problems—and still, I can experience happy moments.
This is where we can turn to the Gods.
- Ask the Goddess to help you let go of your “requirements” before you’re happy.
Letting go of your requirements can be daunting. We have such strong opinions of when and how we can be happy. We tell ourselves that we will be happy when [fill in the blank].
It seems like we just don’t allow ourselves to be happy—in this present moment.
On the other hand, here is a prayer for the Goddess to guide you to let go of those barriers.
A Prayer for the Goddess to Help You Remove Barriers
Lovely Lady of the brilliant Moon
Guide me to my happiness real soon.
Help me remove my barriers one by one.
Every one of them till I am done.
May happiness flow through me
For now, and always.
So Mote It Be
3. Realize all that you have been given by the Gods for your life at this present moment.
Because I deal with depression symptoms each day, I struggle with being stuck in a dark place.
With all my blessings, one would think I could just notice how good things are.
I have many good things in my life. I have food. I am not in a war zone. I love my husband, and he loves me. I have a roof over my head. I have friends and family who love me. And there is more.
I have a friend who writes down five things that he’s grateful for each night. He writes in a journal. He says that this helps him “go to sleep happy.”
I realize that it’s time that we count our blessings and acknowledge them. Better yet, we can do a ritual to thank the God and Goddess for Their gifts.
For example, earlier today, I did a candle-lighting ritual to thank Squat, the Parking Goddess. I was grateful for Her support.
May these insights support your path.
