Hey, Smile Gorgeous
When is the last time you feel so Happy and Grateful in you life? Do you have regrets about your past? do you feel that the world is not fair and it made you feel so sad and horrible?
Happiness is a choice. For every minute you are angry or irritated, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. Be happy. Be yourself. If others don’t like it, then let them be. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody.
If you have the courage to admit when you’re scared, the ability to laugh even as you cry, the nerve to speak up, even if your voice is shaking, the confidence to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it’s offered, then you have everything you need to get yourself to a happier state of mind.
Two days ago I was driving my car to the office and I saw a beggar with her two son laughing so hard in her small cart. She was playing with her sons with just her hand without any toys. She was hiding her hand and suddenly she make it appeared and you know what, her son laughing so hard just because that small things. The scene made me thinking that if you want to be happy is so simple, use all that you have and grateful with it. I felt so small and feeling that I wasn't enough showing gratitude with my life, sometimes I am thinking that I can be happy if I had .............. or if I had ............ it can be a lot of money, nice car, big house, or great job, and you know that those feeling is the biggest thing that make me unhappy with my life. I always compare it and it SUCKS.
I don't say that you can not have a big dream, everybody wants a big house, a lot of money to buy many stuff that they want, great job, and a lot of property. You have to achieve your dream, but if you want to be happy then you must feel grateful with you have now while you are pursuing your dream.
Why don't you think about the small things that you have except money, Family? health? friends? job? anything. Don't be stressed, there's a lot of people wanted to be in your place now. A lot of people don't have a family, a lot of people in Africa don't have food to eat, a lot of people don't have friends, there's a lot of people who don't know if they can eat today, many people don't have job, many rich people that lying in hospital bed want to trade their money for healthiness, and many people don't have friends, Think about it!!
Remember, your mind is your private sanctuary; do not allow the negative beliefs of others to occupy it. Your skin is your barrier; do not allow others to get under it. Take control of your boundaries and what you allow yourself to absorb from others.
Never let someone’s opinion become your reality. Never sacrifice who you are because someone else has a problem with it. Love who you are inside and out. No one else has the power to make you feel small unless you give them that power. You are the only one who can create your happiness.
