Happy Saturday everyone! First of all I just wanted to say quickly that I’m so happy with the response on my ‘Let’s Discuss’ posts! It’s very exciting to read all your opinions and comments every week, I have such interesting and smart readers ;-)! I’m crazy busy at the moment and although it’s super fun it’s sometimes hard as well to always be away from home. So today I would like to discuss happiness! I really want to know your secrets to staying happy and if we all share them we can all get happy from each others comments hopefully ;-). For me, my top three secrets to being happy are the following:
1. Live for today: They always say happy people live for the now and it’s very important to remind yourself of this. Don’t dwell on the past or stress about the future. I always try to think of how blessed I am no matter where I am and to enjoy the moment with everything that surrounds me. If I can’t be happy today, I’m not going to be happy tomorrow or any other day.
2. Stay busy: I get absolutely miserable after one or two days of freedom. Sure, sometimes I’m longing for that three week holiday but I know in the long run it won’t make me happy. The best way to savor pleasure is in the company of others or while working on an exciting passion or job.
3. Don’t compare: I actually think this one is so important to every single person of planet earth. Ambition is healthy and makes people happy, but envy will make you very unhappy. Yes, life is not always fair but every one is their unique person and comparisons with others can spoil the benefits of ambition and are only useful if you learn something from them. Focus on your own being and work for yourself so you can truly enjoy everything you reach and be proud of it.
Now guys, I would love love love to know your secrets to being happy and I can’t wait to read them. And of course enjoy your Saturday and be happy! Big kiss, N.
