A happy life
Many people think, that they need to do this or get this or have this etc. to be able to live a happy life. This is not necessary
To live a happy life demands that we decide for ourselves, that we will stay happy from we wake up in the morning, don’t think negative but transform the negative thoughts into positive thoughts. This sound very easy, but it demand that we really have a wish to stay happy
For me it was a decision about living my life in a positive way and not let myself interrupt or disturb by negative surrounding people. We can’t agree with all about all things, this is not possible, if we are independent souls. Even the people we choose to live together with will have some other opinions, than we have and that is okay
When we learn a new partner to know, we are in love and temporary crazy, we don’t see the partners less attractive attitudes, but by time we find out, that no one is perfect. Don’t try to change your partner, but be the change you wish to see yourself
Maybe the one or other have a negative view at life. There can be many reasons for that, but we need to remember, that we can only live our own life and not our partners. So even we love our partner, it can be difficult to live with a person, which personality seems to be different from ours, why it can feel like necessary to do something good for ourselves
This could be to take the decision about to stay positive so much as possible
If you find this very difficult, then start with 5 minuts per day, where you don’t complain, talk or think negative. For every day you take 5-10 minuts extra with no complaining, negative talk or thinking. After a while your mind will start to think much more positive than before
Other ways to support our new life style could be to remember to be grateful. Write down for what you are grateful, remember to thank other people, when they do something for you or to help you. Also your kids, if they carry out their cup or plate after dinner. No matter what – be grateful
No one life are perfect and all of us have a bad day or a bad experience. When this happens it is very nice to think back for what we have to be grateful. We are alive, we get yet another day, we can eat every day, we have a bed, a place to live, a job, family, friends etc. Not all are so lucky – so be grateful
By time your life will transform to a more satisfying life, where your surroundings will see you grow as a flower and this is the best way to live for yourself. You need to live for you – not for others. We come to our earth alone – and we will leave alone. So live your life as you wish to live it. We can’t change all our life in one day, but dreams can come true, if we really wish them to. We can’t just be 30 years younger, but we can live a satisfying and happy life anyway.
Are you ready to live a happy life?
