What makes you happy?

~Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections~

Happiness is key to living a good, fulfilling and meaningful life.  It is not only a feeling but a state of mind that effects our day to day lives.  If I dwell on the negative, I will have a negative day. Pretty simple.  All in my own doing.  It’s easy to get caught up in unhappy situations in life. A lot of those situations are out of my control.  So why let them make me unhappy?!  If I learn to let things go that I cannot control my thinking will become less negative and more positive.

In the last few years I have found more and more things that has made my life more fulfilling and that makes my soul happy.

High up on my list is giving back.  Giving back and being helpful is a true reward.  The reward is the feeling you receive after being able to help someone else. Seeing how happy it makes the other person feel is a true reward in itself.   A quote I love is “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” – John Bunyan

If life is every getting me down or I feel like there are so many things that are out of my control I can always control myself into helping another out.  There is always someone out there who has it worst than me even on my worst days! Be happy even when your frown is feeling stronger than  your smile! 🙂

Think Less, Feel More

Frown less, Smile More

Talk less, Listen more

Judge less, Accept more

Watch less, Do more

Complain less, Appreciate more

Fear less, Love more
