Can you bring happiness into your life?
Happiness is a choice and it comes from inside. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t find happiness outside of you. You can be as happy as you can by yourself but when something good happens to you it brings you even more happiness right?
We all end up from time to time forgetting who we truly are and letting everyday worries shadow our joy. We get sidetracked. But happiness is there!
See it like a dormant thing that wakes up at different stimuli! Happiness is always inside and available to you. But, if we fill our days with stressful situations and craziness of everyday life, work, deadlines crazy boss, difficult situations… you forget how to actually live. Soon you’ll start to feel lost and unhappy!
So how do you bring happiness back? If it’s right there inside you…how can you access it?
Surrounded By Happy People…Does It Work?
It’s like when you’re wearing a nice, beautiful dress and you know it’s beautiful but when you hear people telling you how great it looks on you, you feel even better. And how wonderful is it when we have someone to remind us how great we are and lift us up when we fall.
Also, having around us people with the same mission helps us stay on the right track.
True, some people are very lucky to have strong and successful people around them from the beginning while others are all alone fighting depression, loneliness, without anyone to talk to.
But we all have the power to choose how we want to live our life.
There are people who had everything they ever wanted but they are unhappy. And people who had nothing and managed to build the happy life they wanted. They somehow found the strength within themselves to move forward.
Yes! Bad things happen, we live in a crazy world. But that doesn’t mean that good things don’t happen or that there’s no hope. Or it’s pointless. It’s not easy to deal with life challenges but that doesn’t mean you should let them ruin your life and happiness.
We can’t always control everything that life throws at us but, we can choose how we’re going to let life challenges or circumstances affect us and for how long!
Take Responsibility For Your Life
It’s always easy to blame someone else than to actually look at you and admit that maybe you’re the one who’s making a mistake. It’s always someone else’s fault. Someone told me recently that he feels better to blame others cause it’s easier. But is it fair?
Is it the right thing to do and most important…how does that help you? It might be easier but it won’t make your life better or solve your problems.
Start taking responsibility for your life and your own actions. While we live in a world that whenever something happens it has an impact on everyone’s life that doesn’t mean you should go and blame everyone and everything for what happens in your life.
Yes, some have it easier than others. True you might have to work harder but in the end it’s your choice. You decide if you want to spend time blaming others, constantly complaining, wanting, dreaming and hoping or you start doing something about it.
Choose to be part of positive situations! Making others happy makes you happy!
The feeling that you helped someone, or someone’s day or life got better because of you is not only going to make you happy but will also make you more determined to make even more people happy and help others or start doing other projects. Inspire others to do the same!
How’s that inner talk going?
I don’t deserve this! I’m so not worthy of…. I’m not good enough! Nobody likes me…etc. How you talk with yourself has a huge impact on your happiness. Here is how you can gain more confidence!
Be who you really are, who you really want to be. Stop trying to fit in so much and lose your true self by doing what others want you to do. Live your own life! You’re the best person to hang out with! Give yourself some time to get to know yourself, who you truly are and what you want to do in life.
Positive Mindset To Lift You Up!
I’m not saying that you’ll never feel sad again or have some bad days. Lots of people have the wrong idea about having a positive mindset. It won’t keep problems away from you but it will help you deal with them easier, better. Check out this article about positive thinking.
Surround yourself with greatness and you’ll also start experiencing greatness in your life.
Believe In Yourself And Who You Are!
Accept and love yourself! Stop fighting with yourself…we all make mistakes. You can’t go back and change things no matter how bad you feel about it. But you can learn from your past and focus on building a better and happier future.
What About Negative People?
If you spend all day surrounded by negative people and situations you’ll probably feel negative, angry, sad, depressed and frustrated too.
Change things up! Look for making new friends, search for positive people and activities. This doesn’t mean that you should be rude or ignore others. Not all negative people are bad.
Many of them are actually just suffering and all they want is to be happy. Some don’t even know what they’re doing while others are intentionally doing harm and are trying to drag you down. You have to be able to tell the difference.
See Things From A Different Perspective
Change your perception…understand that some things just are the way they are and won’t change just because you don’t like them or you don’t agree with them.
Not everything has to be how you want it. But you can change how you look at things and decide how much will you let them affect you. How you decide if a situation is good or bad it’s all up to you.
What Are You Doing Right Now?
Ask yourself this simple question. What do you want in life? Now I’m asking you… Is what you’re doing right now getting you closer or further to the life you want to live?
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
I know it feels safe and cozy but if it’s holding you from living the life you desire you need to step out. Here’s an easy way to look at it… don’t think that you’re leaving your comfort zone…think as if you’re just expanding it!
Negativity It’s Not Always A Bad Thing!
Understand that negativity is part of life. No matter what you do and how nice and kind and great you are, rich or poor, there are still going to be some who will have something bad to say. But instead of asking yourself why …ask yourself what can you learn from each experience and use it to grow stronger.
Is there a positive aspect of that situation? Is there an opportunity there?
Where is your happiness?
Stop putting your happiness in someone else’s hands! You can’t expect or depend on others to make you happy! It’s not someone else’s job to make you happy. Everyone has its own life to live. And yes others can make you happy but your happiness it’s not their full responsibility!
