We recently heard on the news that a young man went into an airport, in Florida, and shot and killed five people and injured eight others. At that moment, many people asked why while looking at their television screen in disbelief. What happened at the airport isn’t a new crime nor will it be the last tragic event to take place this year. There have been many tragic events that have taken place in the last decade that are unbelievable. We wish for things to get better and we hope for change, but it starts with us. It starts with you. Everyone, at some point, look for people or things to help us be better. Even though support is helpful, changing personally will help with the process of feeling and being happy. Depending on something other than yourself to be happy will be short-lived. Here are some simple (small) things in life that will not only make you feel happier, but also healthier.
- Eating well
- Family and Friends
- Being clean and dressing well
- A pet
- Being independent (making your own choices)
The things listed above could tribute to your happiness, but first you must make the choice to be happy. Happiness is a choice. If there is anything in your life that is holding you back from laughing every day, then let it go.
