    This man: http://www.barryneilkaufman.com has taught me how to be happy from within myself just by deciding to be happy and NOT unhappy. It's a choice! I spent most of my life expecting or waiting for happiness to arrive from outside of me. There is reason for this which goes...

    I did my first Spartan Race ever yesterday

    morning, and a ton of people from my gym were there. Before the race we all huddled up and the coach made a speech. He said we had been through so much pain, and had worked so hard for all this. In those few moments, I felt a beautiful sense of belonging that I haven't felt in...

    Dont Worry Be Happy!!

    As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight...

    Sometimes you gotta realize

    that there's better days, you just have to have patience :) Happiness is always there. Sometimes you just have to move certain people or things out of the way for it to shine on through :)

    Dunia itu indah, seperti embun menyapa pagi

    hari menyambut mentari dan kicauan burung pagi....jalani hidup untuk sekedar mampir dan menyapa, minum teh dah berjalan lagi. Berhenti sejenak untuk mengucap syukur bahwa Tuhan masih memberikan nafas kehidupan untuk dapat melihat ciptaanNya yang agung. Disini saat ini aku ada.

    Happiness isn't that plastic smile you paint on

    for your Instagram photos. It isn't being the loudest girl in the bar either. You can't find it under strangers' sheets and surely not on the label of your clothes. No. Happiness is those laughs that make your cheeks hurt and face flush. It is smiling all alone at 3am and...

    Smile...

    The spirit of happiness has to be with you already to be built upon. It starts within and and spreads outwards like ripples in a pond. When you are happy the slightest thing will add, when you are sad, look to yourself, start the smile there. If you don't have the spirit of...
