If you are looking for happiness, you can only find it inside of you. Don’t look beyond yourself, you will not find it in another person. Your source of happiness is of your own making. Choose to be happy. Most people feel unhappy in their lives because they expect others to give them things that they can only give themselves. Thinking that another person is your key to happiness will only bring you disappointment. Your relationship with yourself is the only one you have that lasts for your whole life, and you can be your greatest friend or your worst enemy. When you are happy, people around you like you more and want to share in your happy disposition.
If you don’t have it now, develop an optimistic outlook, then believe it to be true. Show kindness to others, it will make you feel really good about yourself. Smile to people you come in contact with every day. That includes friends, family, co-workers, and strangers. Love who you are, and be thankful for what you have. Exercise and healthy eating will help you on this path. There is always time to do more of what you really want to do, so make it happen. Focus on the present, not yesterday or tomorrow, for the present is all we have.
As Oscar Wilde said, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”
