How do you want to live your life?

You are worth it!

We choose people who share our interests or inspire us to be our friends. Today’s post was inspired by a very good friend….
Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes life gets so hard that you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes life is so stressful. But most of the time life is beautiful. Sometimes life is so awesome that all you want to do is smile. Sometimes you just have to stay positive, and push through the hard times. …

Why? Because life is worth it. The good times are worth it. You are worth it.”Sri Aryani
How often do we have days like that? You do not need to be suffering from depression to experience a day like this; you could be going through a rough patch at work or simply not feeling too good physically. I have mentioned this several times now on this website; how we feel and how we live is all a matter of choice. Fair enough that we have certain constraints such as financial or physical ones; but we can choose our attitudes. Life is a matter of attitude. Being happy and having a great day is a matter of choice. Of course, wonderful surprises and good news helps, but if we choose to be grumpy and discontented; nothing in this world can make us happy.
Life is not easy; but you do not have to be unhappy. Sure, if something upsets you, be upset, just don’t stay upset for too long. Because the other thing is this, life is too short, don’t waste it away. There needs to be a clear understanding and acceptance that no matter how things are right now; everything passes with time, the good and the bad. Allow the bad to pass with time; but keep renewing on the good.
Don’t do it to please others; learn to live to please yourself. I know it sounds really egoistic but it is not meant to be taken in the literal sense that you will do anything just so you can keep yourself happy. There are ways of amusing yourself without infringing on others. My personal take on living: “Do what you need to do seriously; but take life lightly.” In all honesty, we only have that much control in life; we only have that many years to live. Don’t answer to others because they are not you and do not live your life. You do! Make that choice to live for you! I find this message so important and crucial, and I apologise for talking about it all the time. I think it’s because I keep bumping into people who are unhappy, and I really hope to help them.
Like I mentioned before, Being Happy takes effort; it does not happen automatically everyday. You need to choose to be happy, remember that!
Just to share with you what I do to amuse myself…. try it if you like…but don’t laugh while doing it!
‘Next time a stranger talks to me when I’m alone, I will look at them shocked and just whisper quietly…”You can see me?”
Have a great day and lots of fun!!
