Things You Shouldn't Give Up To Be Happy

May 02, 2016

I was having coffee this morning and yet I feel  so destabilized not because it’s Monday, but it’s because lately things are shaking up my mental state and my need for clarity is even making it difficult to coincide. It’s simply that sometimes despite your preeminent effort to feel your best, you may feel worse. Life isn’t all roses, happiness is a choice and the only thing that stands in your way to attain it is… Yourself.   Sometimes our mind is the worst dictator, it could stir up stories that could make us think why we cannot achieve our goal, why we can’t be happy. But at the same time it’s an educationalist it teaches us, it helps us assess the constructive from the unfit. Happiness – a simple word yet it has launched a myriads of doubts among men. 

What are the things you shouldn't give up to be happy?
1. The Sense of Appreciation -  There is no denying that almost all dwell in a constant state of wanting more. There’s no contentment but learning to appreciate the things you have will make you happy.

2. Your Childish Wonderment - It's this approach to life that keeps you probing and imaginative. So don't allow your child at heart died down, be fascinated, laugh, play, live.

3. Creating your own Dreams Never let anybody create your dreams for you. Only you know what you want, Only you know what makes you happy. You may go down the trench several times, but at least you will find lessons, gain wisdom you won't be able to find if you let other people do it for you. Remember that not everyone has the same understanding, the same motivation and the same heart as you do.

 4. Your Faith -  Your faith is the only thing that will keep you going rough tough times. Sometimes it’s hard to see the rainbow after the storm. It’s our struggles that will grant us strength. Have faith in God.

5. Your Unique SelfSometimes it's easy to be decapitated by other people's impression of you. But you shouldn’t lose yourself to be accepted by other people. You are unique, You are own yourself. 

6. Lessons From The Past - Although you shouldn't let past mistake get the best out of you. Lessons from the past holds great knowledge that could function as your ticket towards life. Learn from every mistakes, heartaches and sufferings.

7. Sense of Gratitude - as 1 Thesssalinians 5:18 says "In everything be thankful, because this is God's will for you in the Messiah Jesus" be thankful in every circumstance because our Life itself is reason enough to be grateful

Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy unless you decide to be happy.  -Ralph Marston
