What makes you happy?

What makes you happy?  Have you ever sat down and thought of all the positive things in your life?  Usually people sit and complain about what is wrong in their lives instead of looking at all the great things that they do have in their lives.  I know I am guilty of doing this all the time.  I mean is it not easier to just complain?

I know that its difficult to find happiness when you are just so down and sad.  Life is difficult and no one said that life is fair so we have to deal with it.  Life is also not always so happy.  Life has its ups and downs so we all have to make the best of it.  So what to do? Always do something that makes YOU happy!  Life is short so live it up!  Take time out for yourself, do NOT feel that you are being selfish because you do.  I know that everyone has responsibilities regarding kids and their home and their job and etc etc etc. (the list never ends!) Well we all have time to eat and time to go to to the bathroom so why cant we have time to do a little thing for ourselves?  We have to make time!

Everytime that you feel down or sad or think that this day will never get better – take a deep breath, smile and  think about what makes you happy.  Is it your little puppy?  Is it that you woke up this morning without an alarm? Is it your wonderful family? Whatever it is, think about it and get excited about it.  Remember its not easy at first but whatever your going through will get better!  It always rains before the sun comes out.

I know that I am very happy about my three beautiful daughters.  I am also happy about having a wonderful husband and a great family.  Im trying to think of all the things that make me happy to get rid of all that negative energy. Sometimes its difficult but we all can do this together!

There are some people in this world that are always SO happy and you look at them and go – Really? How can that be? You may be a little envious of them or you might just think they are lying about being happy.  Well those people also have a lot of downs in their lives, they just choose not to accept it and they think of their happy thoughts :)  You can only be sad IF you let things get to you.  When it comes to YOU and YOUR feelings, you are an army of one.  Only YOU can make YOU feel good or bad.  If someone says something to you, it will only affect you if you let it – otherwise they are just words.

So today and everyday after think of happy thoughts and do not let anything get to you.  Block those negative thoughts and tell them to take a hike.  Smile and enjoy your life:)

XOXO Sonia

    Shubs - Amen! Life can be extremely hard sometimes, but with a lot of faith, patience, and hope, life will be ok again.
