Happiness is more likely to manifest itself…

 

Happiness is more likely to manifest itself in one’s life as a result of making a positive difference in other people’s lives than it is by solely seeking to benefit one’s own.

Broken vs unsolved

When a person learns to recognize the difference between something that’s actually broken and something that is simply unassembled or unsolved, the manner and attitude with which they approach that thing can have a dramatic impact on its outcome.

If you’ve ever referred to yourself or someone else as broken, understand that the same concept applies.

A conscious effort to be grateful

If you want to see more of the things you desire in life, it’s important to make a conscious effort to be grateful for what you already have and always focus on what you want — and what you want to see more of — not on what you don’t want or the lack of something.

For those struggling…

If you are struggling, remember: “This, too, shall pass”. But also know that whatever we are struggling with passes faster when we focus on the steps we can take to change our lives for the better, no matter how small those steps may be. Because over time, even small steps can carry us a great distance.

Always, always, always focus on what you CAN do.

A healthy attitude is a precursor to happiness

healthy attitude is what allows a person to see the value in all life experiences, not just the “good” ones.

The simple decision to be happy isn’t as much of a precursor to happiness as a healthy attitude is. A healthy attitude is what allows one to truly appreciate the journey of life regardless of one’s circumstances.

The more one learns to enjoy & appreciate not just the highlights of one’s life, but the complete journey, the more often happiness arrives as a result of that enjoyment.

Skip and volume control (for your mind)

When you don’t like a song in your playlist or grow tired of one, what do you do? Do you play it even louder? Do you put it on repeat?

No. You skip the song and play something you like better. Because you control your playlist.

So why then would you play the same old tired negative thoughts when they pop into your head over and over again?

You control your thoughts. Learn to hit skip.

Happiness is not just putting on a fake smile & pretending

Excerpt from: Happiness is not a choice

Happiness is not a choice. Attitude is.

Happiness is not just putting on a fake smile, acting cheerful, and pretending everything is OK.

Sometimes things are not OK. And that’s OK.
