NEW YEAR DAY #4
Hang on to your truth
and respect the truth of others.
Choose to be happy
Forgive those that you can forgive
and seek the forgiveness of
someone who deserves it
Do something outside
of your comfort zone
Be the voice for someone
who has no voice
Be the type of kindness
that is strength
Remember that love is a verb.
Choose healthy foods,
activities and people
Fall six times
get up again seven,
Wish people a lovely day
Live honestly, truly
and with integrity
See every ending as a new beginning
Life is too short to let someone make you miserable. Remember, someone can only make you unhappy if you give them the power to do so.
Never let someone steal away your happiness either. It seems like there are days it’s a hard thing to hang on to. When you are around someone who is never content, you begin to think negatively. When you have someone constantly all up in your face telling you that the world is an awful place, you start to believe that it is so. Happiness thieves are everywhere
Never let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life.
I’ve come to realize that happiness truly is an inside job. It’s just like a cup of water, you have to keep refilling it if you want to keep drinking from that glass.
Remember that one day does make a bad life.
Finding happiness can be done in so many ways, and what brings you happiness may not bring happiness for another. Thankfully, we are each unique individuals and all have our likes and dislikes. A good cup of coffee can bring me joy just as coffee to another is terrible and it’s the last thing they’d want.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design into the present.
Today is unique and you may never get another one. Enjoy it while it lasts. Happiness has to be seized as well. Happiness doesn't happen to you, it happens because of you. Other people can't make you happy. You have to find and seize your own happiness.
You can never change the past nor control the future, but you can change the mood of the day by touching someone’s heart with your smile.
