Are you happy? How often do you experience joy in your life?
What causes you to be happy? What causes you joy?
What makes you laugh out loud?
According to dictionary.com, HAPPY is defined as:
1. Happy, happy or joyful, like over a particular issue: being willing to see a person.
2. Characterized by, or an indication of pleasure, pleasure or joy: a happy mood, a happy mind.
Some of the things that bring me joy are:
· Spend time with my family
· See the beauty of the world around me
· Watching children and toddlers
· Walking through fear and did something I was not sure I could do
· Make a difference to someone else's life
What brings you joy ? What makes you happy? Are you waiting for "something to happen" to be happy? What makes people good and others dissatisfied?
I think there are some things you can do to be happy, such as:
Be optimistic . If anything happens, think automatically about the good that will come. Consciously, see, find and know that everything happens for a reason and something good comes out of everything.
Focus on what you can control and what you can do about situations.
With what circumstances, think about how you passed in other words, focus on yourself, not the other person.
Living in the present . Some of the moments you experience will not come back. Enjoy every experience.
Feel gratitude . Think every day of everything you are grateful for.
Helping others who are less fortunate than you. This will help keep everything in touch.
Live be true to your values . If you believe in honesty, be honest …. if you value trust, be trustworthy …. if you value reliability, show that it is self-evident.
Be careful . If you eat well, get plenty of sleep, move, etc. Then you will feel better automatically, which will affect your thinking.
Schedule FUN in your life …. visit a friend, go to a movie, go to class, try new hobbies, go for a walk, read a book; otherwise, fun might not happen – if you don't plan it.
Get yourself and become aware if you start complaining about what makes you unhappy. Then your focus will change. Look at your thoughts. They create your reality . Change to think and talk about what makes you happy.
Every day is precious, so I ask you, "What are you doing today?"
If you wait until something happens to be happy, how long are you waiting for?
Be Happy Now!
"We tend to forget that happiness does not come because we get something we do not have, nor do we admit and appreciate what we have
