It is not enough to just say, "just be happy." Sometimes, you really have to work on finding your happiness. Ask yourself who makes you happy? What makes you happy? Either one, can help you decide how to become a happier person.
I personally find happiness by crossing items of my never ending to do list. I find pleasure in writing in my diary, (yes, I still keep one, I have two volumes completed), incentives at work, baking cupcakes, walking dogs, painting my nails,etc. I discover relief after exercise.
These can be consider life's simple pleasures, but what really makes me happy is the time I can spend alone in silence. The world can be a noisy place, where I do not even realize where my day went, because I was too busy doing other things. "Look at us, running around. Always rushed, always late. I guess that's why they call it the human race." This is a movie quote from, The Switch. I suppose it is good to laugh at ourselves and try not to take life too seriously. However, maybe running around aimlessly is apart of finding true happiness?
I remember as a kid, how happy I was eating a happy meal. Imagine that, a meal that is named, happy? If I ate one now, I would mostly likely not be happy, because I would still be hungry and would not even have a cool toy to show off afterwards.
When I was a baby, my twin sister and I loved gummy bears. It was our favorite candy. Well, our siblings have reiterated numerous of times, my twin, cried her eyes out, because our parents would not buy us gummy bears! If you are not happy, scream until someone listens to make it better.
If only eating your favorite candy was the cure to maintain our happiness. For now, I do have a video that makes me smile. After all, smiling is a reflection of being happy.
Feel free to sing along and do a little dance, I know I will. Enjoy.
Here's to always being your BEST!
