“The way to choose happiness is to follow what is right and real and the truth for you” ~ Oprah Winfrey.
How true. The key phrase here is “right for YOU”. That means not comparing yourself to someone else. You won’t find happiness comparing yourself to others or believing that the grass is greener on the other side. If you do, you lose your opportunity for happiness. Happiness is discovering what’s right for you and that takes getting to know yourself well.
It means you need to be authentic, to be the true you. How many times have you stopped doing, being or saying something because you were afraid you weren’t going to be accepted, respected or loved if you did? In those moments, the fear becomes more important than expressing who you are.
The reason unconditional love, God’s love, is so comforting is that supreme love accepts your true nature. It is seeing the true intention behind the words and actions. It’s seeing you on a deep spiritual level, not just the physical level, and loving you no matter what you do or say.
When you get to what’s right and real for you, you will embrace the truth of the spirit of God in you and your true essence will shine.
