Make Yourself Happy Now, “Um, Really?”

Sharing is caring!

When you see “Make yourself happy now,” do you feel resistance like I used to? What comes to YOUR mind? Let me know in the comments.

I used to think…

  • “Make yourself happy” sounds kind of selfish.
  • What would people think?
  • Maybe that’s just a bunch of airy fairy nonsense.
  • If I were happy all the time, I wouldn’t do things I’m supposed to do.
  • You can’t just look at life through rose colored glasses.
  • I should just be grateful for what I have. 

These are all thoughts from my paradigm — A system of beliefs, ideas, values, and habits that were programmed into me as I was growing up.

The DreamBuilder program showed me that none of these thoughts are true. They are just “the voice of fear.” 

The foundational principle of DreamBuilding is that our Creator has provided all the resources we need in order to enjoy life and be a blessing to others. 

Not only are we created to be happy but it’s our duty, because our happiness and joy light up the world and inspire others to be happy and fulfilled too.

We have been given unique talents and abilities to share — a life purpose. Our feelings of joy and peace are signals that we are on the right path. Our feelings of longing and discontent are nudges to get back on course.

At the same time, we have a paradigm with all kinds of fear based ideas that were programmed into us by humans. “The voice of fear” will suggest lots of reasons why we shouldn’t make ourselves happy. It will try to talk us out of it. It will try to distract us. It will even try to scare us. 

And this may surprise you, but I still hear that voice. 

Yep, it doesn’t ever go away completely. But DreamBuilders learn how to manage it. WHAT A RELIEF!!!

We “befriend our fear.” It’s like a companion on our life’s journey. We don’t let it sit in the driver’s seat though (or even choose the music or snacks LOL).

So, if that voice of fear is popping up and telling you that it’s not Ok to “make yourself happy,” here’s what you do…

  • Tell it “not now.” 
  • Focus on your vision of a life of happiness and fulfillment. 
  • Feel how it feels to be living that life. 
  • Notice how happy and energized you feel.
  • Then take an action step. 

That puts you back in the driver’s seat and gets you where you want to go.

You were not created to have a mediocre life. You were created to live a life you absolutely love and to experience continual joy and peace.

Life is too precious and too short to waste on being unfulfilled. 

So, here’s to staying focused on your vision, taking consistent action and enjoying the journey! 


Much love,
