So I have decided to embark on a new chapter of life, its called letting go off the past and embracing and creating my own happy. I realize that nothing hold us back more than holding on to things and people that have done us wrong. Holding on to hurt and anger does nothing to the “holder” more than causing them to walk around with a burdened spirit. Yes, i am guilty of that.
On the onset of 2016, I decided that i have had enough holding on to and its time to rid my space of negative energy as it does nothing for me. I am creating my own happy, I am not going to pretend as if negativity wont present itself to me but I will not allow it to dive into and dwell in my system.
Creating your happy is not an overnight thing; it will take time and one has to be consistent. Its liken to any new chapter, the beginning will the most challenging but telling oneself that this is to betterment of you, will make the journey worthwhile.
What can one do to start this journey one may ask? I believe the following are some of the ingredients in creating your happiness.
-Rid your space of anything negative; this maybe in the form of friends, families and situations that cause you to be unhappy. This may be hard at first because its hard to walk away from love ones even when that are not so healthy for you. Just let go off anything that brings you any sort of sadness.
-Another thing to do which is most important is to always take time out for yourself to evaluate your situations. Life gets hectic, some of us have families of our own,school, work and all sort of things happening at the same time which can be overwhelming. Take a few minutes once a week and evaluate yourself. This will help you to make changes where necessary.
-Engaging in activities that you love. There is nothing that brings greater joy than doing something that you absolutely love. It doesn’t have to be anything major but it must bring you total satisfaction. This could be going to the movies, reading a book, painting, visiting a museum or taking a trip out of town or having a night in or out with your significant other or your besties.
-Be true to yourself; this is the hallmark of happiness. Make sure that you are honest and open with yourself. This will give you a clear conscience and frame of mind to work with,this will allow you to make the best decisions in situations. Being true to yourself will allow you to choose and accept only the best for you and it will also allow for you to say to others what you are comfortable with and what is not acceptable in your space at this time.
– Have a positive mindset, in whatever you do ALWAYS think positive.
Every individual situations are different and the adjustments vary but what ever must be done to make creating this happy should be clear and precise. life is short and this is said so many times but hey its 2016, we were just in 2000. Take charge of your happiness and do whatever it takes to get you into that place.
Thanks for stopping by and may this year and the years to come put you in a place of pure bliss. We all deserve it.
