Life is hard. But you already knew that. So why are some people so happy all the time? I promise that it's not because they're an exception to the rule.
Some people just have a gift for optimism. They see the sunny side and the silver lining, and their glass is always half-full. It doesn't mean that they don't hurt, worry, fear, or grieve. It's just that when something good comes along, they embrace it.
I spent a good chunk of my life thinking, when (............) happens, I'll be happy. It doesn't work. Those things may or may not happen. I can promise though, tough things will come too.
So, find happiness now. This very second. Here's how:
Find something that gives you a warm fuzzy inside and DWELL on it. You know, just like we do with things that make us unhappy. Think about it. Focus on it. Savor it. Be grateful for it. Record it.
So what brings joy by the second? Here are ideas from my life:
Wow. I could keep going on and on now that I started. That;s the way it works. I bet you get these random zings of good moments in your life too. Sometimes they only last a few seconds, but they happen. Recognize them for what they are. Reasons to be happy. They add up to a joyful life.
What makes you happy? Please leave a comment and share the joy!
