For those who’s going to read this today, I have an assignment for yourself and that is to conjure things in your life that will make you happy everyday that nothing and nobody can put you down.
When I say conjure I’m referring to anything true and real for you. It could be a person, a memory, a proof, a sign, a habit, a hobby, a thought, your religion and write it in a piece of paper or save it in your phone where you can see it everyday to remind you.
You’re not obligated to do this, but I did this, and it’s working really good for me, you should try it too.
According to this article, The Habits of Supremely Happy People, Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology, theorizes that while 60 percent of happiness is determined by our genetics and environment, the remaining 40 percent is up to us.
As I am just recovering from the most painful heartbreak I’ve ever felt before, I actually promised myself last year that at the start of this year, I’m going to move, be strong, and be happy.
I am going to admit that I’ve come a long way because God gave back some things in my life that I’ve given up years ago, some of the reasons that makes me happy.
So to not make this post longer and boring for everyone, I am going to list things below the things that make me so happy everyday and really confident about myself, my life, and my future.
Of course there are days that bad or negative things will get to you but because of these things, I can bounce back easily from sad and depress for a while to being happy and confident again that everything will be fine.
GOD: Since I was a little girl I’ve always believe in God and I always believe that you can have anything as long as you put your everything, and your heart into getting them. I’ve been through a lot and now, I realized that God will give you the best things in life and what you want and need at the right place and time including the challenges and trials you encounter in life. For always, everything happens for a reason.
FAMILY & FRIENDS: Just like everyone, we all get tired sometimes of our family’s way of treating us while raising us and some of our friends negative attitudes that hurt us, but in the end, I wouldn’t want them to disappear from my life. My family and friends have things in common, their personality, it’s stronger than mine, and it shaped me to this very hard and beautiful diamond to be able to get through the naysayers and negative people who tries to let me down.
VERY FEW GUYS: You made stronger. You made me learn things about myself and know the kind of guy I should settle down with and you also made me grow up, mature, strive harder, and become the best person that I can be.
PROOF: I don’t know how to explain this but let me summarize and make simple for everyone. I was planning on putting KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE here because that’s what they are. The knowledge and experienced I’ve gathered in my everyday life gave me an unbreakable proof, signs, confirmation and blessings from God, researched and scientific based proof that eventually I’m going to receive the most important thing that I want and need out of this life, so even if it’s not yet here, Thank you because it feels like it’s already here. I know its close. I know its coming. So I thank God so much for this blessing especially. Everything that happened has come to this.
WRITING: You are my therapy, my expression, the path who led me to one of the best things that ever happened to me, meeting that one person who will open your eyes and change your life always for the better.
SINGING: Words are not enough to describe just how much singing makes me happy. All I know is every time I am singing, I feel so high, floating in the sky and I forget all my problems, gives me perspectives and even resolution.
PIANO: I’m forever grateful that I was given an opportunity to learn the piano, even though I didn’t appreciate you before as much as I did now. I’m glad I made the decision not to let go of my skill all these years. I can still play and when I play, it makes my heart burst with happiness and I’m also able to touch someone else’s heart as well.
DANCING: It started with Ballet when I was a little girl. I regretted giving it up because if I didn’t I could have danced my way to dancing schools and get scholarships according to my teacher. At least when I got into high school, I’m able to learn other kinds of dance: hip hop, and ballroom. And now, I’m still doing it as a workout: Zumba, and Barre.
This is me celebrating life. 😄
