176-Have You Checked The Air In Your Tires‪?‬ Everyday Happiness - Finding Harmony and Bliss

    • Self-Improvement

I heard this saying the other day: Happiness is like a tire, you’ve got to keep pumping air into it.  Wow, that got me thinking.  So much of the science indicates that this happiness work is always a work in progress. How are we filling our tires?   


 


Transcript:


 


Welcome to Everyday Happiness where we create lasting happiness, in 2 minutes a day,  through my signature method of Intentional Margins® (creating harmony between your to-dos and your priorities), happiness science, and musings about life. 


 


I'm your host Katie Jefcoat and I heard this saying the other day, it was: 


 


Happiness is like a tire, you’ve got to keep pumping air into it.  


 


Wow, that got me thinking.  So much of the science indicates that this happiness work is always a work in progress.  We are never full without a little leakage.  Like a tie, we run on it for a while and air spills out.  And god forbid we hit a nail and need a patch.  


 


This is so much like our happiness, our mindset.  We can be going along just fine and then, out of nowhere, we hit a rough patch.  Some patches are rougher than others. Some we can fix ourselves, some we need to go to the mechanic.  


 


Ok, I might be taking this saying a little too far, but you get the picture.  We can’t assume that just because today is happy, tomorrow will be.  We can’t take for granted our happiness and what we’re learning through this podcast or other sources.  


 


This takes work, some effort.  Our happiness doesn’t just fall into our lap.  But more importantly, it takes intention.  


 


So today, I invite you, like putting air into a tire, to fill your cup.  Perhaps that’s an Intentional Margin to do something for you, that lights your hair on fire.  Maybe it’s to call a friend you enjoy, but haven’t found the time recently.  Perhaps it’s spending 10 minutes in meditation or reading.  One sure fire way is to express gratitude or sprinkle a little kindness to a stranger.  


 


This happiness work, when done intentionally, really will change your life.  And that is super exciting.  Until next time.
