Blessed be you: For anyone who is serious about being happy!
We all are blessed, even though we may not believe it, and we can be chronically happy even though we might not feel like it. Our past experiences and current circumstances could be more dismal than cheerful leaving us depressed, sad, and angry. However, we have an inborn desire for us and others to be happy. This desire is both intuitive and intellectual. We know happiness exists and God makes it clear through His word that we are to experience abundant joy and live life to the full – we are meant to be happy.
Happiness is not a rite of passage, is not a law, nor is it natural. It is an expectation and God’s intention for us. We are not born happy, but we want and are expected to be happy. So, how do we get something unnatural that we naturally want and are supernaturally meant to have?
You will find the answers plus more here! The goal for blessedbu.com is to teach and guide you to true happiness and show parents how to teach their children to do the same.
This is not a quick fix solution. Success requires fortitude, time, and commitment. Achieving true happiness is no different. To be rich in happiness, you must be willing to learn and work. I provide instruction and guidance; you determine your success.
But, before you go any further, answer this, “On a scale of 0 – 10, with 0 being not at all and 10 being absolutely committed, how willing are you to do what you need to do and make changes that get you to be truly happy?”
If your answer is less than 8, you’re probably not as serious about being happy as you think. Reflect on why your answer isn’t at least an 8 and decide what you really want and are willing to do. If you are serious about being happy, continue reading my posts and practicing the essentials. If you aren’t as committed as an 8, you can still read my posts and essentials for inspiration and motivation.
Based on science, Scripture, stories from my practice, and personal stories, my posts are designed for you to first understand the foundation of happiness. They go on to provide knowledge and strategies to help you build your happiness, and teach you how to confront challenges and overcome the adversaries of happiness.
You will be richly blessed and genuinely happy if you stay the course!
