Make Happy Moments a Thing
We’re on the pursuit of happiness! Be spontaneous and start your day on a happier/fresher note! Remember that when you focus on the good, the good gets better!! Being focused on your everyday activities and having a smile on your face is the key to having a successful day, week or even month. We all know that this may be difficult at times, but working on this practice will bring forward meaningful experiences and these can be passed along to your family, friends, and colleagues.
Let go of negativity and focus on the good. It is easy to be blinded by our problems and it may seem as though it is impossible to focus on the good things but it is definitely possible. Understand that the mind is a powerful thing and that you have the ability to aim that power on the good things in your life. Every day has something positive in it and acknowledging these moments can make us happier. It is important to remember that no matter how challenging a situation is, you will get through it. There is always something positive to be gained from every situation even if you don’t see it right away! Stay focused and good things will come. How do you like to stay positive in negative situations?
Don’t forget to smile!
As Marilyn Monroe said, “a smile is the best makeup any girl can wear.” Life throws many things at us, both good and bad. But by choosing happiness and taking a deep breath, we can respond in a positive way. A smile indicates that we are deciding to remain happy no matter how bad the situation. Make happiness your goal and find a reason to smile because there is always a reason to. Smile at the world. Smile at yourself. Just smile, within and without! Your fate could have been Infinitely worse.
