In my last post, I wrote about my experience with depression and how I overcame it. I used to be in a place where I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted or even what made me happy. I just followed the crowd and did whatever I saw others doing.

For years, I was lost and I struggled to find myself among the overwhelming multitude of people I associated with.

Most times, I believed things that weren’t even true about my personality. I just realized what I was doing was simply accepting other people’s perception of me because I didn’t know ME. I listened to what haters had to say and I allowed myself to be buried in them.

I was lost, my self esteem was destroyed and I had no self worth! I did things that didn’t really make me happy because I wanted to please others. I sort of sacrificed my happiness to make other people happy. I disqualified myself based on other people’s opinions.

Recently, I woke up from my slumber! I'm back from dreamland. I’ve stopped following other people’s dreams; I’m chasing mine now even though they seem crazy and a bit unrealistic to other people. I simply don’t care anymore. I’m in love with myself.

I’m not waiting on anyone for my happiness. I’m not forcing friendship on uninterested people. I’m not desperate for love either. I’m at that joyous place where all that matters is my joy and inner peace.

I’m beginning to chase my dream and oh dear it feels so awesome.
Every day I wake up filled with so much joy that I fear my heart could erupt just from the amount of happiness in my blood.


I’m not surprised at my happiness; I’m doing what I love; I’m happy for a lot of reasons.

1. I know where I belong and I’m not fighting with anyone to maintain my place.

2. I know what I want and I’m working hard towards achieving my goals.

3. I’m sure of where I’m going and I’m not in a hurry to get there.

4. I’m doing what I love and I’m simply enjoying every minute of my life.

5. Money doesn’t really matter to me at this point; if it comes I receive it and spend it but I don’t worship it.

6. I have so much confidence that the universe is working with me: everything is falling into its rightful place.

7. I’ve learnt to stay away from negative people and their overwhelming negativity.

8. I’m listening to my heart and following my instincts more than ever because they are there for a reason.

9. Although I listen to advice from other people, I don’t imbibe them all; I sift them and only take the beneficial ones.

10. I’m beginning to connect with my inner man and I’m allowing myself to be guided spiritually.

I believe the key to happiness is finding what you have passion for, doing it and being committed to it.

I see life very differently now and I realize I’ve been getting it all wrong. 

You see, in today’s world, our outdated educational systems teach us how to get a career and earn a salary but they forget to teach us how to be truly happy and live life at our full potential. We are also not taught how to look within us and discover the purpose of life.

Life is a race but I’m not in a hurry to get to the finish line; I’m absorbing all the details on the way to my destination but at the same time, I’m focused. I've found that shining light that disappeared from my life so many years ago.

I’m grateful to all the people who said “NO” to me. They are my heroes! Because of them, I learnt how to stand on my feet and be my own boss. I never gave up on myself even when things were tough. I’m thankful to God for the inspiration and the gift of wisdom.

I’ve made up my mind that I’m never going to quit on my dreams and goals. I’ve found myself and I know who I am. 

What about you? Who are you? What makes you happy? What adds meaning to your life? Are you really living or just passing through life as a spectator?
