The internet is a source of inspiration for me. Lately I found an article written by Chiara Hoogervorst. She writes: “There are two types of people in the world: those who choose to be happy, and those who choose to be unhappy. Contrary to popular belief, happiness doesn’t come from fortune, fame, material possessions, or other people. Rather, it comes from within.”
Below is the list of things that happy people do differently, and as usual I am leaving it for your consideration.
How do they do that? The whole article you can read here: http://www.oomphify.com/22-things-happy-people-do-differently/
THINGS HAPPY PEOPLE DO DIFFERENTLY:
- Don’t hold grudges
- Treat everyone with kindness
- See problems as challenges
- Express gratitude for what they already have
- Dream big
- Don’t sweat the small stuff
- Speak well of others
- Never make excuses
- Get absorbed into the present
- Wake up at the same time every morning
- Avoid social comparison
- Choose friends wisely
- Never seek approval from others
- Take the time to listen
- Nurture social relationships
- Eat well
- Live minimally
- Tell the truth
- Establish personal control
- Accept what cannot be changed
I totally agree with the assertion that happiness depends on us, and I often talk and write about this belief. I believe that everyone is responsible for creating one’s life, and this comes out of the decisions and choices you take.
When I read this article I smiled, because I felt I can sign under it with both hands. But frankly speaking, I’ve always had a problem with point no. 18.
