Happy is one word that seems foreign to many.
Not because it doesn’t exist but because most people search for it at the wrong place and time, often forgetting that you don’t look for it. You make it happen.
It is not something elusive; it is something that comes from within, a decision we have to make.
If you want to be happier every day of your life, here are three sure fire ways to make it happen:
We sometimes forget to be grateful for the things given to us, not because we do it on purpose but because we have gotten used to receiving them, so much so that we expect them to happen daily. Learn to appreciate the little things in life, to be thankful for everything. When this becomes a habit, not only you would be more contented, you would also be happier. It also goes without saying that happy people are healthy people.
Savor each moment
Yes, we live in a fast paced environment, but it doesn’t mean we have to run wild like everyone else. Savor each moment you are given, appreciate the gift of life and extend love and peace to those around you. Help when you can without expecting anything in return. Happy can be found in contentment after all.
Envision great things to come
What you think about you become. This is true in so many ways. Perhaps it may not happen exactly as you want it but it would be close enough, if not better. When you visualize greatness, you become it. Or at the very least, do everything in your power to be one. You will be inspired to do well, be good and most of all, you would be happy because you have a purpose.
Every day could be a struggle, or you can choose to make each day a happy one despite the struggles you know you would be facing.
