Your Key to Happiness

To me, the key to happiness is finding purpose- a purpose that’s so much bigger than yourself, and contributing to it. Happiness comes when you answer a calling and make it your passion, purpose, and life’s work. Becoming an advocate for the bullied and tackling things about bullying that few people think about is where I get my happiness.

That purpose is informing others aspects of bullying that no one talks about and in that, helping targets reclaim their personal power. This is so much bigger than me. And it’s why it feels so rewarding!

Contributing to helping others more successfully battle bullying isn’t for material gain, fame, or fortune. It’s for my spiritual fulfillment. It’s the inner rewards I get. Rewards of the heart- knowing that this is making a difference and making the world a better place- even if just a little bit.

There’s no reward that matches that! I want to be the person I needed when I was targeted years ago.

Sure. Material rewards are nice, don’t get me wrong. And I certainly won’t turn them down if I’m ever blessed with them. I would love to make a good living doing what I love. After all, I’m human too.

But at the end of the day, the inner rewards- the rewards to the heart and spirit are more satisfying than I ever thought they would be.

It’s what keeps me going and it’s where my fulfillment comes from.

    Great post Cherie

  3. God bless you and guide your journey, it’s beautiful, I share your feelings and I also hope I can help people feel better and I’m dealing with anxiety and depression and it’s not easy but I trust the Lord will help us so we can help others.

    • Thank you so much, sweetie. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with those things. Depression and anxiety are hell on earth. They were for me when I battled it. Know that I’ve been there and I feel your pain. Know that I’m here for you and that I care. Continue to trust in the Lord with all your might, sweetie. He will bring you through it. 💖🌹🌺

  4. PREACH! “But at the end of the day, the inner rewards- the rewards to the heart and spirit are more satisfying than I ever thought they would be.” Booyah! 🤜🏽🤛🏽 Mic drop! 🎤🎤🎤 I can’t add any more to that my friend! 🤗💖😊🌷😘

  5. Spiritual fulfillment is, in my humble opinion, something which far surpasses any other gain. It’s what makes us feel most alive, happy and content. It’s what we fall asleep with and wake up to. Ultimately material gains and possessions wither and disappear with time, yet that good feeling of satisfaction while helping others in a unique way is unparalleled to any other!
    You deserve every bit of that, Cherie! Your posts are an inspiration to many 😊😍

  6. I appreciate the fact you say ”to me, the key to happiness is…” or ”it’s where my fulfillment comes from”. You say what is good for you and you show respect to the reader, you let him think what would be good for himself. Life is no cooking book, it has no recipes.

    • Thank you so much! 😍🥰One thing I always keep in mind is that it’s always about my readers and I make it about them. I might tell stories about my own experiences and feelings from time to time. But, at the end of the day, it’s about the readers. Again, thank you so much!
