True happiness comes from inner contentment. But how do you go about achieving inner contentment, and therefore happiness? The most important step you can take is to start appreciating what you already have. You may not have your dream job, but you have a job that pays the bills, co-workers who are friendly, and a boss who isn’t abusive. Can you be happy about that? Or you and your partner may have recently had a huge fight, but think about why you fell in love and wanted to be with them in the first place. If this person is kind, caring, compassionate and loving and treats you with respect, you can still appreciate being in a relationship with them despite their imperfections.
When we take the time to consider the abundance of good things we already have, we begin to develop an inner contentment that leads to happiness
