When we describe our pets we often say, “they love us unconditionally.” That goes the same for when we are looking for a partner. We want someone who will love us unconditionally. We say or hear the phrase ‘unconditional love’ hundreds if not thousands of times in our lifetime but, how many times have you heard the phrase ‘unconditional happiness’?
Unconditional happiness simply means we are happy with no conditions. We don’t need a reason to be happy, we just are.
In my opinion, we don’t use or hear that phrase often because very few people are unconditionally happy. We are only happy when something good happens in our life. We get hired for the job, we have a baby, we get married, we get our dinner for free, we book a vacation, and so on. We become happy after we receive the wanted outcome.
Let me ask you this… do you have a toothache right now? If your answer is no, five minutes before reading this blog post were you happy because you didn’t have a toothache? Probably not. But, if you had a toothache and then it went away, you’d be happy. Right?
The thing about life is, we should be happy all the time. Our happiness shouldn’t be conditioned on the outcome.
“Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.” —Deepak Chopra
This month we are in the new moon of pisces which is the month for happiness. For the next 30 days we are given an abundance of joy and happiness. We just have to be open to receiving it. Every new moon we have the power to decide how the next 30 days will be. Think of it like this, the Universe wants you to have total happiness and is giving it to you as a gift.
All you have to do is claim that happiness by acting with joy unconditionally! Yes, being happy for no reason at all!

Smile at everything. Make people wonder why you are so happy. Most importantly, share it. Unconditionally. Share your happiness with others just because.
We deserve to be happy for no reason at all. Don’t let an outcome determine your happiness. Just be happy.
