What I Know About Happiness

Here is what I know about happiness. YOU are the only one responsible for your happiness! If you rely on others for your happiness, you will ALWAYS be disappointed and NEVER be happy!

I never understood what would make me happy, I'd be happy for a while, but it never lasted for very long.

As soon as I took control of my life and was responsible for every aspect of it, is when I saw who I truly was. With that I made a few (many) changes.

Some of the changes that I made were these:

1.     The only one responsible for you, is you.

2.     You have a choice to look at things 2 ways, the glass is half full, or  the glass is half empty.

3.     People want to be around someone who is positive not negative.

4.     If you think thoughts of enthusiasm, joy, and appreciation, and are passionate about it, your life will change for the better.

5.     Happiness can only come from inside you. you will need to make changes inside who you are in order to make your life fulfilling to YOU!

Once you do these things, every aspect of your life will fall into place and you will find the happiness you didn't think you would ever have.
