It’s been a wild ride these last couple of months. From deciding where to move, to which schools to apply for, Andy and I have had to do some grown up thinking. (I don’t love it.) We have some heavy decisions ahead of us that not only affect the now, but our entire future. It hasn’t been easy.
So we decided to take a weekend trip to So. Utah, my other home as I attended SUU, to take a break. After a stellar facial and some kick-butt Thai food from my favorite restaurant, Benja’s, we spent some much needed time with family. I pondered what true happiness was and how I could obtain it for myself. After listening and chatting with everyone, these are my 7 secrets to happiness:
- Negativity breeds negativity.
- Stop pitying yourself and help others.
- Enjoy the now.
- Cherish the simple things, for when you look back those will be your favorite memories.
- The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
- Everyone is struggling in one way or another.
- Believe in your future.
For those who are in my same boat, I hope these simple tips help you today! It’s very much easier said than done. I need to work on these every day, but I’ve decided today to keep trying. That’s all we can do is take it one day at a time. We can do this! Thank you all for the love and support! Come what may! 🙂
