“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.”
– Dalai Lama –
We watched Yes Man last night, and I had forgotten what an awesome film it is.
I got halfway through Danny Wallace’s book halfway through the 2000’s, but never finished it for some reason. If only I had been able to read my blog post JFDI back then. 🙂
Anyway, it’s a great book and film, mainly because of the sentiment.
The premise is that a guy starts to turn his unhappy life around by starting to say Yes to questions, rather than No, and karmically, good things begin to happen to him. And most importantly, after a few interesting experiences, he realises that he needs to be selective about the things that he says Yes to. He needs to follow his heart and say Yes to the things that really matter to him, when he perhaps once might have said No.
The Universe wants us to be happy. It wants us to live a life full of peace, joy and love and it is constantly giving us opportunities to experience these things. All we need to do is be willing to allow these experiences into our lives, so they can happen.
So, what do you need to say Yes to, that you have been saying No to, for too long? I promise you, you’ll be rewarded as a result.
