Happiness comes from within. It’s something I hone in on and channel that’s deep rooted within me. In order to maintain this happiness, I find that doing things that are enjoyable that I am naturally good at bring me the greatest joy. God has given each of us gifts. When we use those gifts we are aligned with what we were created to do and who we are created to be. Finding a way to use my gifts on a daily basis through my work makes my days run smoothly and brings me immense joy. If there’s one bit of advice I want my children to learn from me, it’s to discover their gifts and use them. Even if it sounds crazy to do so, if God has gifted it to them, they should follow Him and use those gifts in their daily lives. I want them to trust in Him and take those leaps of faith, learning to serve Him first and foremost; following his plan over their own and overcoming fears because He wants his children to prosper and lead fulfilled, happy lives.
1 Peter 4:10
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
