Motivational Monday: You Are Responsible For your Own Happiness

One of my absolute favourite genre of films to watch is a good romcom. I’m a serious romantic and love it when there is a happy ending and the girl gets the guy and they ride off together on a white horse into the sunset.

But over the last week I’ve been mulling over this quote “ You are responsible for your own happiness” and looking at the whole fairytale plot line with fresh eyes.

Why is the girl sitting there waiting for her prince charming to (a) come and save her and (b) do things to make her happy?

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still a soppy romantic but I just think that if you need a hero in your life then you need to become one.

Stop waiting for something else, someone else to bring joy into your life. It’s too much of a responsibility to put onto anyone, be it your friend, boyfriend, husband, family etc.

If you are unhappy or simply need or want certain things in life then you need to go out and get them yourself. By waiting for others to do things for your happiness, you are transferring all the power and responsibility for how you live your life over to them.

Understand that if you really want your life to be different, you can’t sit there and complain or wait for someone else, you need to realise that are the only person that can really make the change to your life.

So chase your happiness, get rid of things that are making you unhappy and take back the power over your life.

Have a fantastic week ahead.

Segun. x
