Here’s the thing with the pursuit of happiness.

As counter-intuitive as it may seem, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.

It’s not all happiness.

It takes work.

It takes pain.

It takes sacrifice.

It takes leaning into your vulnerabilities.

It takes confronting the uncomfortable.

It takes experiencing the full force of every negative emotion that you so desperately try to avoid so that you can develop the capacity to experience & appreciate the full force of all the positive emotions you desire.

But most of all it takes work.

Real, difficult, hard work.

Your own happiness is everything. You need to find out what makes you truly happy and pursue it, like your life depends on it. Because it does.

That’s the easy part.

But you also need to lean into what is making you unhappy and eliminate it like it’s trying to kill you. Because it is.

That’s the counter-intuitive part. The “baptism of fire” if you like.

And I can tell you right now that your happiness is not related to your achievements or accolades. Nor how much money you earn. Nor your possessions. Nor how many followers you have or likes you get on social media. Nor any one thing or any one person.

Nor does it depend on the opinions of others.

Nor does it depend on your ability to dodge discomfort.

These are all just distractions.

It starts with you. It’s your choice. It’s your responsibility. It does not happen by chance. It is not ready-made.

It takes work.

Real, difficult, hard work.

So make sure you work on it.
