Find joy in the little things. Holiday music, lazy Saturday mornings, laughing so hard that you cry, hot coffee, leaving work early, light traffic, fresh laundry, smiling with a stranger, a beer on the house. These are the little moments that make up a life.
If we only looked at the darkness, we would never see the beauty in the stars.
We could be shrieking with joy because our favorite song just came on and suddenly we’re singing completely off key, ignorant and carefree to those around us.
You need to find your own happiness. You need to learn how to make yourself happy.
If you want 2017 to be your year, remember the bad times of 2016 and let them empower you.
Being snobbish or judgmental or looking down on people have no place in the same sentence as ‘intelligence’. An intelligent mind knows there’s potential in everyone and a desire to help and increase social well-being is born.
I can’t speak for other generations but I doubt there’s ever been this much pressure to appear happy all the time. Facebook and Instagram are the battlegrounds on which we fight to prove just how happy we are and nobody takes first place.
You’re only listening to your brain, never your heart.
“Sometimes you just need to detox the body.”
Happiness is not a thing. It is not that new Ferrari or even your dream boyfriend. Happiness is a sense of being.
