Happiness is precious and days can go on without having to feel it at all. While it is true that challenges and obstacles come to us without warning us about them, they also never come alone. When we begin to see through the appearances they wear on their own, we begin to recognize possible designs that may have escaped our conscious minds for a moment but continue to whisper within our souls and guide our steps out of the darkness and into the lights.
When life gets tough, there are still many reasons to still feel hope. It is human nature to keep believing in dreams even when the days are rough, the seas are rough or spirits are low. This post is dedicated to all of us who may have experienced the ups and downs of Life for a while, waiting for the high to bring back joy, vision, and strength.
Here are 5 reasons to remind you how to keep smiling in times of heartbreak, harsh reality checks, and other sharp life lessons:
1 – The Best is always hidden
The first rule of thumb when it comes to expectations is to remember that the best is never out front but rather hidden. One of the biggest mistakes one makes, when one is feeling down, is staying above the surface rather than diving in to really reimagine reality from a deeper and meaningful perspective. The best is always hidden, waiting to be discovered. Discovery occurs after temporary veils are lifted before the light is challenged with curiosity and optimism. Dare to dive into the hard way so you can smile again, not from what you experience with your eyes but what you feel in your heart.
2 – Happiness is always given
Joy is never far from us. It may, at times, be removed from our immediate emotional field, blocked, by the ego-mind, filtering for Truth but never out of reach. In challenging times, let’s remind ourselves that Joy is the place where all our fondest memories are engraved and where the heart is easily the source of the most essential happiness. Smiling means being one with this center, regardless of the circumstances that surround it.
3 – The Grateful are always clever
A small but incredibly powerful tip for smiling forever is an attitude of gratitude. It always manages to carry the highest vibrational frequency of the moment and naturally pulls the spirit up. Gratitude is pure intelligence in the making. It is a magnet for positivity and the genius it has is directly linked to the presence of a soul that gives it all a sense of greatness. Find gratitude in the moment of holding the ego-mind to judge it, but being more open to it so that it can better understand what this moment really brings.
4 – The Certain is always boring
Here’s a reminder of the stunning smile that tends to be seen as a natural barrier to minds that so reject its value: which must be boring because it’s temporary.
The difficult, the rough and the dark are spaces that invite us to seek beyond the certain because the Spirit, which has chosen our experience, has other delightful plans and is unwilling to let us fall for the certain, the comfortable and the known. Consciousness is about the new, the innovative, the creative and the great. Whenever we are going through a difficult moment, we should remind ourselves that this is a simple subtle invitation from our soul to receive more joy in our life.
Don’t settle for what you know. Let’s take a trip to the unexpected where circumstances may not always make us smile but they will always do us wonders… And that should be enough to start making us smile a little.
5 – The Master is always unclear
As the smile temporarily fades, the master is nearby to teach us a lesson. We must be so close to manifesting wisdom that seriousness may be required through focus and discipline that a smile may not be very visible but it is the greatest goal. The smile we don’t see on our faces today should still be the reason why we live. Listen to what Life is revealing to you, know that smiling is always the reason what it brings because it symbolizes the sacred harmony between soul, mind and body. Keep an eye on your aim and smile not to begin with. You are happy with your Life but remember to smile because happiness is everything to you.
