Being happy is not always easy, but it is obtainable. This is your life and only you can blaze the path to happiness, or fall in a pit of despair. I think most people want to be happy, they just do not know how to go about it. Or they do, but they aren’t willing to give in or forgive others to find it for themselves.
1 Live a healthy life. People who care about themselves, and their body, generally care about others. A healthy life involves loving yourself, understanding yourself, and taking care of yourself.
2 Helping Others. When you take care of yourself and your well-being it is that much easier to be a giving person, who helps others. Many people find happiness in giving and helping other people. It is the natural order of life. Helping others has never really caused someone grief.
3 Spending time with others. People who spend a lot of time alone tend to be more depressed. Spending time with your family and friends is an integral part of being happy. This allows personal growth for the soul, and the rewards are endless.
4 Getting over other people’s opinions. Happy people often measure happiness on what they feel, not what others tell you in happiness. You have to let go of what other people think, or say about you to understand yourself.
5 Understanding yourself. It is so important in life to know who you are, and who you are not. Understanding your weaknesses and limitations allows you to find success and happiness. Dwelling on limitations does not help. Solving problems by employing your strengths is a essential part of being happy, and focusing on what you can do.
6 Forgive and Get Over It. Research proves, time and time again, that people that have forgiveness, often find happiness. When you hold grudges with people who have done you wrong you only harm yourself and give them power over you. Forgive others, or at least allow yourself to move on, and not dwell on the pain that only holds you down.
7 Focus on the positive, when you can. So many people hate their job, yet one they get home all they talk about is their job. Then the despair gets spread through the house. No ones job is easy. However, make a real effort to leave your work troubles at work. Happy people do not focus on the negativity of their job. They find ways to be happy in their life. And talking about work at home is a big problem for many people. Remember it is just a job, but this is your life – so only you can choose if your life will be happy or sad. Focus on the good when you can, because it really affects your well-being.
Happiness is obtainable, it just takes a lot of work to spread your light! But in the end, it is worth it. You only have once chance, this is your life – go for it!
