You don’t need a perfect life, to be filthy rich, a model face or to be married to your celebrity crush to be happy. Happiness is an inside job that you have to work on cultivating every day.If you want happiness it’s your job to create it. Whether it’s by doing what your love or surrounding yourself with those you love; there is happiness to be found in everything. It isn’t about waiting for everything to fall into place to be happy because you may be waiting a very long time.
If money is the reason for happiness what happens when it runs out?
If the perfect job is the reason for your happiness then what happens when you have no job?
If finally getting the man of your dreams means happiness, what happens when you find out he is just as flawed as you are?
Don’t wait till you reach a certain season in your life to be happy. If you can’t be happy now, you won’t be happy then because each season is preparation for the next. Being happy is a pro-active choice; It requires a bit of effort on your part.
As a Christian, I’ve come to learn that my happiness and joy comes from knowing that all my life, in every season, GOD is still GOD. As result, I chill and focus on enjoying life and being happy. That doesn’t mean life is perfect, but since my happiness and joy is not dependent on circumstances I can choose to be happy.The ones who appear the happiest aren’t the ones that have it all altogether. It’s the ones that choose to be happy regardless.
.A few basic tips to help keep you happy:
- Spending less time with toxic and negative people.
- Fill your mind with positive thoughts.
- Find the positive in every negative situation.
- Don’t major in minor. Some things aren’t worth the stress.
