Tiny Buddha is a website that helped me get through tough times, and it may help you get through issues you may have that are keeping you from feeling happy. I highly suggest checking out this wonderful site for valuable insight and inspiration that can guide you through and past some of life’s difficulties.
I would also suggest reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle or listening to YouTube videos of Eckhart or another spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra. Open your mind to their teachings and open your heart for a chance to be truly happy. It all starts with focusing on your inner self and learning to drown out your mind’s endless commentary. Begin there, learn to meditate (The Power of Now taught me), and learn to end your suffering.
Tiny Buddha has a weekly e-newsletter that used to save me every time it landed in my inbox. Decide that you’ve had enough and start helping yourself grow to be the person you want to be! You are truly capable of anything if you learn to focus on the baby steps instead of focusing on the desired outcome. You deserve to be happy, and I believe it is within you to achieve it.
