To be happy does not mean you have to be euphoric everyday. Growing up I remember thinking blissful life meant constant happiness, constant joy and no bad days.I am a happy human. Honestly I am genuinely overall a happy person but, that does not mean I do not have some horrible days.
You are the only one in control of your happiness. You could have the perfect body, perfect job, the hottest boyfriend and all the money in the world & you could still be bitter. You control your own happiness. You have the ability to chose to be happy. Nobody else can choose that for you.
Learn to mind your own business– I feel like I used to think that being a caring person justified putting my nose in other people’s business. Well that is not the case. Who my friends date, what they purchase, what so & so does on the weekend or even how people chose to go about their lives.. all of these things are none of my business.
When in doubt, mind your own business.
Sometimes it is best to be silent- I love to talk lol. I always have. I could talk in sentences before I could even walk. Talking came naturally to me. I always make jokes saying I like the sound of my own voice haha. But, really sometimes it is best to say nothing at all. Arguing just ignites negative energy. And whenever I feel the need to say something rude I remind myself it is better to be quiet.
Now, I do love to stand up for myself but, sometimes I remind myself that silence is the best reply to a fool.
Use your energy for good things. When I was a teenager my mom got really into the Law of Attraction. Throughout my life I have gone through phases of being really into it then I fade away. But, I think that is is one of the most powerful lessons my mom has ever taught me. (That is saying something cause she taught me everything I know). You can think negative thoughts and watch your life spiral. It is not by chance that your ‘bad day” continues to get worse and worse and worse. You wake up late, miss every light, hit a pot hole, spill your coffee and you can’t catch a break. But, that is because you are allowing the negative to take over. See the good. Focus on the good. And in turn the universe will bring you more good. You attract what you put out there. So, you are the driver of your own destiny bus. You get to choose if you want joy or to be bitter.
Take good care of yourself. You can’t pour from a glass that is empty. Always take time for self care. I get really busy and I do a horrible job with this sometimes. I have to remind myself that life will go on if I miss an event with my friends to rest. Take that nap. Spend an hour in the bath tub. Read that self love book. Light candles. Do nothing. Whatever makes your soul feel rested take time each week to do that!
