We get upset. Often times we all get driven to a tipping point where we are about to lose hope, thinking that things that are happening right now are dreadful and that it all doesn’t stand a chance to improve… most importantly, there’s an eery thought about not having a life we’ve been always wishing and hoping for.

Even if things might not shine as brightly right now, it’s temporary and everything inevitably will change, for the better. With that being said, let’s liberate us from those prisons of being under the dark clouds of sadness because of momentary things, other people that might not make much sense, daily challenges, and other factors. When the going seems to get harder – just breathe and read the following…

Often times life looks like a messy and complicated tangle.

We’re running around, pursuing happiness, not knowing exactly what might cause that happiness in a first place. Pleasure versus purpose? Might be both… 

Climbing the ladder of success, making more money, swimming around in complex thoughts and being perpetually busy…  those things are often on our the most urgent priority list, yet deep in our wishes, we would rather prefer more time, love and connection, and security.

This might be the age of making a living, though, probably, at the cost of making a decent life.

It is possible to keep a positive outlook on things throughout a day, a month, and the entire year; and once we make a habit of such attitude towards life, no matter the short-term curveballs of circumstances, we will become happier and much more resilient.         You’ll choose to smile more, do more of what makes you feel good, focusing on things that make you more peaceful and content.
