Some unhappiness is caused by real loss, and such unhappiness tends to become more bearable as time passes. If you feel unhappiness of this sort today, my hope is that you will find solace as time passes.
There is another type of unhappiness or distress which is caused by aspects of our lives being out of balance or out of sync. When we say, for instance, we want peaceful relations but we’re holding angry thoughts towards others, that disconnect brings discontent or uneasiness. Striving to keep our words, thoughts, and deeds in line can bring a deeper sense of ease.
According to Mahatma Gandhi, Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are all in harmony.
My wish is that today be a day when you can know such harmony and happiness. Consider “checking in” a few times today to see if what you’re doing is in harmony with what you say and think. Such mindful moments (and being willing to adjust our thoughts, words, or deeds) may help us find peace within.
