Difference between Happy and Unhappy

By Katherine Hood on April 28, 2024


The unhappiest of people insists on reliving the past over and over in their imagination, constantly replaying events, conversations, and mistakes in their minds. This fixation on what has already happened prevents them from fully experiencing the present moment and moving forward in life. Instead of focusing on the potential for growth and happiness in the future, they remain stuck in a cycle of negativity and regret.

Pleasure comes from external sources. Happiness is internal.

It is important for individuals to learn from past experiences, but dwelling on them excessively can hinder personal development, overall well-being, mental/emotional health and HAPPINESS!

By letting go of the past and embracing the opportunities that lie ahead, one can break free from the chains of unhappiness and create a brighter, more fulfilling future.

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." - Abraham Lincoln

Being more present and training your brain and thoughts to work for you rather than against you is a powerful practice that can transform your life. This does take some mental fitness, meaning like training a muscle you have to do it every day or it atrophies. Unfortunately some wait to reach out to me and get support in training their brain and thoughts after they hit rock bottom and the pain is so severe, I am their last hope. It's an act of bravery to ask for help.

By focusing on the present moment and harnessing the power of positive thinking, you can empower yourself to live a life from the inside out.

This shift in mindset gives you the strength and power to cultivate the life you desire, allowing you to imagine a future that aligns with your deepest desires and aspirations. By actively engaging with your thoughts and directing them towards your goals, you can manifest the life you want and turn your dreams into reality.

Embracing a daily practice can lead to a more fulfilling and purposeful life, where you are in control of your own destiny and able to create the life you truly desire. (no it's not meditation, journaling or other strategies, and processes, what I point to is an understanding).
