I walked on the street the other day, and saw many individuals had a frown on their face. Why is it so hard to be happy? How can we achieve happiness? What is "Happiness" exactly? These questions popped up millions of times before, but we never really knew how to answer them. Although here are some of the ways that I feel in which may allow people to be happy...
1. Live like as if there is no tomorrow.
I'm sure we all heard of this one. If tomorrow is the end of the world, what would you do today? Would you still care about what others think about you? Would you still work your ass off with absolutely no attention to your health? Would you still fight with people who care about you over small things? Would you still be complaining about everything around you? So start absorbing that concept into your mind today, and laugh every morning simply because the world has granted you another day.
2. Volunteer to help.
Life is not always about receiving, but as well as giving. When was the last time you made an effort to help someone? How did it feel like afterwards? Whether it's simply helping an old man with directions, or volunteer all the way across the globe, it allows us to achieve a sense of satisfaction. Not everyone have the ability to put a smile on another person's face, so you are very special if you did.
3. We shouldn't want another person's life.
It may sounds like an excuse, or an escape from something you can't reach. But the truth is, each person has their own way of living, and we probably can never have the things that others possess, simply because we are not "them". While you admire the life that others had, you never realised how they actually got there. You probably thought...I wish I was in their position? Don't. Just turn around, and you will see at least one person wished they had your life.
4. Laughter is contagious, and so is anger, jealousy, depression etc.
The more positive friends you have, the more likely you will be a happy person. This is because they continuously feed you happy memories and motivate you to be part of them. Unfortunately, we all have bumped into at least one nasty person in life. Whether it's the bitchy type, betrayal type, back-stabbing type, whatever. Just remember to delete them from your life, completely. Once you have done that, you will realise how great that decision was.
Whatever mistakes you made yesterday, it's all history. We shouldn't hope to go back and change things, or constantly blaming on ourselves. Has anyone seen the Butterfly Effect? That's exactly what I mean. Everytime you try to change things, something else arises. The worst thing that can ever happen is to abandon what you had today to chase for yesterday. So walk on, leave it all behind, because you know the future will always be brighter than the past.
