Every day is a new day,
and you'll never be able to find happiness if you don't move on.
-- Carrie Underwood
First things first, it is important to note that not everything that glitters is gold, and not everything that is bought ought to be sold. (Well, of course, that’s just the dumb in me trying to rhyme like my silly ass Bunkie and her friends). Point is, I cannot categorically say that I am always happy. I'm working towards it though, I promise.
Well, I must have said it before somewhere on this blog, that image is film trick. In fact, most smiles are not genuine. However, the difference between “no smile” and a “fake smile” is that one makes you look younger, helps manage stress and anxiety, and makes you look more attractive i.e. less unsightly.
I realized that I have asked myself this particular question several times, and my inner man keeps telling me it’s possible.
So, according to lifehack, you should exercise more, think positively, trash negative thoughts, treasure your experiences more than your possessions (now that’s deep), write down the things you are grateful for, help others, focus on yourself etc.
How about trying very simple things such as, appreciating everything life throws at you? And I sincerely mean the good, the bad and the ugly. How about that moment when you feel like things are not all cozy and exciting, just look back at those who do not have as much as you do, who are not as healthy or complete as you are?
Try not to stay mad at yourself for so long, always believe that things happen for a reason and that there’s a positive side to everything, including events that are painted in negative.
Quit focusing on things that make you sad, cease worrying about certain people, the ones that exhibit characters similar to that of a fallen angel, they are the ones who stress you, and scold you, they just want absolute control over your life.
Make friends instead with people who value you, and believe that as long as you're happy, nothing else matters. Change the things you can about you, but most importantly, accept who you are, because if you do not, no one else will.
