If we want happiness, we need to change the current direction that we’re headed in by taking personal responsibility. It does start with us, so do a personal inventory on what can be changed and what you have the ability to do. Start motivating yourself today. No one will do it for you. You don’t have to be optimistic by nature. Choosing the right thoughts and actions will help create a new path of joy and victory today. Live in the moment, The Mayo Clinic continued: “Instead, look for opportunities to savor the small pleasures of everyday life. Focus on the positives in the present moment, instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Don't postpone joy waiting for a day when your life is less busy or less stressful. That day may never come. Instead, look for opportunities to savor the small pleasures of everyday life. Focus on the positives in the present moment, instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.” We all can agree with this, and like the song “Happy” live for today and focus on the possibilities.
