True Happiness

I was thinking this morning.. (after I had 2 cups of coffee of course) about people being truly happy. There are a lot of people I know that seem to be always critical and in to everyone else’s business all of the time.  It use to upset me, but now I feel sorry for these people. I don’t see how they can experience true joy and happiness with all of that going on. I could be wrong, but it just seems to me that would make you miserable.  Also, along these lines I was thinking about how some people are so outgoing, loud and even seemingly extremely happy, but when you get to talking to them it is a different story.  The outward appearance is just that, only outward.  I am truly a happy person, deep down on the inside.  Sometimes I am all business and getting things done.  Even a little stressed sometimes.. but I am still extremely happy. The old song “I’ve got the joy down in my soul”, I really do feel that joy in my soul.  I have throughout the years assumed ( I know about that word, don’t tell me) that people that appeared extremely happy on the outside didn’t need any encouragement, they were great.  But I have been very wrong.  I also have realized if I am that happy, why do I not make an effort to let it show more….   So I ask you, do you have true happiness inside and out?  Also, we need to remember when trying to help others that what you see is not always what you get!!

    • Well… it is different for everyone because we all struggle with different things. For me, I had to let go of being critical. I realized that being critical of people and situations made me miserable. I had to make a choice to overlook things that were really not that important. It was a process. Also, I know that true joy and contentment come from a position of faith and trusting that God is for you and not against you and that He really cares for you. He is in in control and not me.
