Happiness...

What is happiness?? To be perfectly honest the definition differs by person.. What makes you happy may be someone else's misery. Like the saying goes "Happiness is a mood not a destination". You don't always have to be happy (but it's healthier to be), it's fine to be sad and have other moods once in a while... you are only human after all. Over the years of my life I have tried to be as happy as I could be though I doubt anyone can ever be 100% happy. Here are some tips to live a happier life than you already are :

  • Work hard but don't take life too seriously (everything happens for a reason).
  • Laugh a little, best when you are in pain (it makes it slightly better, atleast in my case!).
  • Don't try to be something/someone you are not.
  • Never compare yourself with others.. We are all different.
  • Do what makes you happy..."Doing what you love is happiness, liking what you do is freedom."
  • Free yourself from negativity.
  • Increase positivity in your life.
  • Be honest in any situation.
  • Don't dwell on the past... Move on!!
  • Don't base your happiness on money or success... "Sometimes happiness doesn't come from money, fame or power.. Sometimes it comes from friends and family or the quiet nobility of leading a good life."
  • Stop caring about what people think of you... Not every opinion is worth listening to.
  • Chase dreams not people.
  • Cherish memories.
  • Forgive often.
  • Let go of fears,excuses,attachments and expectations.
  • Let go of the need to impress others.
  • Don't worry about things you can't change.
  • Live simply.
  • Avoid regrets.
  • Appreciate and give more.
  • Stay real and humble.
You are in charge of your happiness don't let anyone take that away. Life is too short to worry too much and be unhappy... Life is not a competition, once you find happiness hold on to it!!! Live life to the best of your abilities!! xx
