gratitude

Choose happiness

Are you someone who is never satisfied with life? Maybe you feel that everyone is more intelligent, beautiful or more successful then you. The truth is you can never get an accurate picture of someone’s life through their Instagram or Facebook status. Stop focusing on the lives of others and start thinking about how you can improve your own life. The first step is appreciating what you already have.

 I know you may be thinking, what do I have to be grateful for? You might be unemployed, stuck in a dead end job or can’t seem to find a meaningful relationship. There is always someone who has it worse than you do. There are so many things in life that we can’t control so why stress over them? Let them go. Instead focus on the things that are going well. You might have an amazing support system or be a really good friend. Whatever it is focus on the positives and in time you will begin to feel more content.

If you could change one thing what would it be? We all have circumstances/ people that are preventing us from being happy. It’s hard to find gratitude and positivity in a life that is negative. If the people around you do not add value to your life get rid of them. This can be hard especially with friends that have been around for a long time. Distance yourself from them and eventually they will get the message. It’s almost impossible to get rid of negative family members so you need to learn how to manage them. If you have a particular relation who is always moaning and complaining ignore them. A sympathetic nod will do but don’t allow them to drag you into their problems.

Now is the time to start building the life that you want. There is no limit to what you can be, what you can do and what you can have.  Enjoy the present and plan for the future.
