what is life exactly?

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Proverbs 23:7

Just be happy. Sounds too simplistic, doesn’t it? But, in actuality, we can have much more happiness if we choose to consider things from a positive perspective.

Everyone experiences the ups and downs of life, however, we can make a decision to dwell on the negative or practice what the old saying says to do: “When life give you lemons, make lemonade!”

It really boils down to your attitude and you have the ability to mold your attitude into any shape you like.

Here are some tips:

  • Ignore those who tell you that life is too difficult to be happy. What do they know?
  • When you awaken each morning, be thankful for another day, even if it’s raining.
  • Smile at those you meet, even if they don’t return the favor.
  • Don’t borrow trouble. Each day has enough of it’s own.
  • Don’t allow trouble to bury you in its gray mire of sorrow.
  • Don’t give in to negative thinking.
  • Be positive even when others are not.
  • Refuse to give up on anything worth having or doing.
  • Do something you enjoy each day, even if it’s just a walk in your neighborhood.
  • Whistle as you go through the day.
  • Work at being happy because it’s worth it.

You’re human, like everyone else, and from time to time you need a little pick-me-up in your decision to be happy. When you reach that stage, find someone else who has decided to be happy. Join forces with him or her and march forward in your decision to be a happy person.

Simply speaking, a happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

Choose today to just be happy – as much as it depends on you!

Think about things this way. Whether or not you are happy or sad, a day still passes as it should have. So, why not choose to be happy? It’s something that I choose to live by. 开心也是一天,不开心也是一天;合璧辛苦呢?Indeed. Why bother being sad over something that would make your day bad? People are given choices. You’re not being held at gun point asking you to be sad, otherwise you’ll die. It is alright to be sad. It is alright to cry. The most important process is the moving on that happens after it. Sad. Cry. Move on. The world won’t wait for you. Even if you wallow in your own sorrow and stay stagnant, nothing is going to happen; the world will continue to move on, and you’ll just be left behind.

Whenever people put you down, do the opposite. They are not the one who is going to determine what you do at the end of the day. IT IS YOU. They can condemn you and what so ever. It does not matter. Cos you are who you are. And that’s why you’re unique. When life gives you shit, just shove it into the garden to fertilise the plants that always make you smile =)

Have a good day!
