Need A Reason To Be Happy?

Do the happy dance? Or burn out instead?

I think one of the reasons we get burnt out because we are so hard on ourselves.

Especially with the social media world we live in. We see the one best photo from someone’s day and we begin to think that that one #justwokeuplikethis photo probably represents their whole life.

When really behind every selfie is approximately 47 nearly identical photos that didn’t cut it. Then they put a filter on it, edited it, asked 4 opinions about it. And then FINALLY posted, ‘Just hangin’ with my peeps!’.

We will celebrate other people’s success but we wont celebrate ours.

You read that last sentence too fast. So I’m writing it again.

We will celebrate other people’s success but we wont celebrate ours.

We live in a society that makes it ‘ok’ to talk our deficiencies but egotistical and rude to talk about our strengths! Which is just a sick way of the enemy trying to make us feel insignificant, never enough, lacking and like we will never measure up.

The Enemy Is Just Trying To Steal Our Happy

We just think. ‘I can do without” – NO! Sometimes you need do a little happy dance, eat the ice cream, get your toes done, and dance around the room because of something that YOU did!

Even God modeled the behavior by stopping at each piece of creation and acknowledging that is was good!

You got your best grades? GOOD! BE HAPPY! CELEBRATE!
Finished the report on time? GOOD! BE HAPPY! CELEBRATE!
Got the entire house clean? GOOD! BE HAPPY! CELEBRATE!
Lost five pounds? GOOD! BE HAPPY! CELEBRATE!
Been faithful to praying everyday? GOOD! BE HAPPY! CELEBRATE!

Celebrating your accomplishments is celebrating what God is doing in and through you. Not pride, proud ☺
And that makes God….Happy!

We are going to be focusing on not letting the enemy hijack our happy and getting our happy back at the I AM WOMAN Happy Conference this Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13.

WHATEVER YOU DO, don’t miss a chance to increase the amount of HAPPINESS in your life!

Psalm 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. NIV

Genesis 1:3-4 And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it; and God separated the light from the darkness. AMP
