How Will My Happiness Grow? Progress is different for everybody. I remember Mary who came to one of my group meetings and left 90 minutes later a completely changed person. So much so that when she got home, her family noticed. Mary was a perfect example of what a person can achieve. She came in with a glum expression and was complaining about being fed up and depressed about the life she was leading. Before the meeting was over she was laughing and smiling. She was joking with the other people and making them laugh. She continued in the same way and was the life and soul of all the meetings she came to. She was a perfect example of what YOU could achieve. Not everybody changes as quickly as Mary. I think that her lightning fast change came from the misery that she was experiencing in her life before coming to the meeting. She was desperate for change and what she heard did the trick for her. How Quickly Could I Make Changes? Other people make these important changes at different speeds. Some do it very quickly (but not as quickly as Mary did) others take a bit longer. I have realised that the stronger you want to change, the more depressed you are about your life, the quicker you will make the changes. Once you start, you quickly become aware that you are making changes that effect your life very strongly. How To Notice The Happiness Different people people have different understandings of happiness. And will notice the increase of it in different ways. Here are a few that you may notice: 1) You get up in a better mood. 2) You start looking forward to what you are going to do that day. 3) You laugh more. 4) Other people notice and say things like: “Nothing seems to bother you.” Or : “You seem happy today.” Etc. 5) Nothing seems to bother you. 6) You will move from self centred views to generosity of spirit. 7) Nothing will be too big for you to handle. 7) You will be able to meet and beat adversity I don’t want to go into this too much because everybody will have different experiences. This list is very general. You may become aware of some of the things on it, you may become aware of entirely different feelings. But, believe me, you will be well aware of the changes you are making. This awareness becomes a non-stop trickle of good feeling. And the trickle grows to become a powerful river flowing through every part of your life. How Can I Make Happiness Grow Even Faster? SIMPLE.
