i came across this yahoo article (roommates, dont be hatin’) and i thought it was simple but absolutely brilliant. it’s 15 ways to be happy in 2010, but really every year in your life. here are just a few of my favorites:
[be your own bff]
i think this one is so important! be confident, have self respect, know that you are awesome and tell yourself that everyday. people know when you arent self confident and it really isnt that attractive or desirable. just sayin.
[dream big in every area of life]
you can do anything you put your mind to. really, ANYTHING. you just have to have the self respect to accomplish what you want and get it done.
[expect a miracle]
“believe that something wonderful will happen for you today. the universe is waiting to shower happy blessings on you.” good things happen, i promise.
[meditate, pray and chant]
“research shows that people who are spiritual tend to be happier and healthier than those who are not.” interesting…
[sleep baby sleep]
i’ve discovered that sleeping is key in feeling good about myself everyday. i have a hard time feeling motivated if i dont get at least 7 hours of sleep every night. i honestly dont know how i survived freshman year.
[wake up early]
“the morning hours are full of spiritual energy and prana (life force).” i’ve discovered that i love waking up early and having plenty of time before work or my first class. if mornings are rushed, it seems like my whole day is out of control. example: i left my phone at home today. awesome.
[say “good job!”]
like i said before, tell yourself you’re awesome! you deserve it! and i dont think it’s prideful if you dont see yourself as superior to others. it’s just you discovering how awesome you are. it’s a commandment! (other wise known as recognizing your divine worth).
