REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY TODAY!

There really is no secret to being happy, you just have to make up your mind to be and you will be. But in case you need more than that here are some steps you can take to begin learning how to make yourself happy.


To be happy is relatively easy just decide to be a happy person. The choice is simple, choose to be happy. Suffering is optional! As the saying goes, being happy can never go out of style, in fact that is my status on WhatsApp as I write this.

Once you make the choice to be happy your world will change to accommodate what it is you want and you will find being a happy person easier to do than you first thought!

Decide today that you are the best person to make you happy and find ways to do that.

Remember that no one can make you happy! Your happiness lies more in your hands than it does anyone else. Thinking he should, she should, they should make you happy puts your life in a shaky position because when “people” aren’t making you happy, you are miserable, trust me.

A great way to be happy is to Laugh! Laughter has an amazing effect on the body, mind and spirit, raising us up when we feel down. Just stop for a minute and remember a really funny incident. It doesn’t matter how long ago it happened, just recall it now and see what you saw, hear what you heard and feel what you were feeling. It should bring back the feeling inside of you of being happy. Now whenever you down just recall that memory. ‘Laughter is the best medicine’.

‘The only thing in life that will always remain the same is change’, and in our life, we have the power to make the necessary changes if we want to. Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation we can always find solace in the knowledge that it too will change.

People are different, accept people for who or what they are, avoid clashes, constant arguments, and let go of all kinds of resentments.

If arguments seem unavoidable do your best to make an effort to understand the situation, see it from your point of view, then their point of view, then see if you can become an outside observer looking at the two of you disagreeing and see it from that point of view. What difference does that make for you?

Being grateful is a great attitude. We have so much to be thankful for, Thank God for keeping you alive to see this day, thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank people for helping you out even at the mall.

Express your feelings, affections, friendship and passion to people around you. They will most likely reciprocate your actions.

Avoid holding on to anger or frustrations, this is bad for your health. Instead find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause injury or harm to anyone.

Learning is a joyful exercise. Try and learn something new every day. Learning also makes us expand and broaden our horizons. And could also give us more opportunities in the future.

Run, dance, walk and do other things that your body was made for. Feel alive.

Avoid exposure to negative elements like loud noises, negative comments on social media and your blog, toxins and hazardous places.

Choose to be happy today and forever, I have done so a long time ago,  what are you waiting for?

In my entire blogging life, last  month, August was my best month, I made a lot of friends and networked with a lot of beautiful people.

Wishing you all the best this month of September.

 I love you all

    Dearest Tessy,
    I also think that happiness is a DECISION. Sometimes life is not easy to bear, sad things happen, but if you have made the decision to be happy, you will be more quickly able to get into the right track again and feel good there.

    What a great, inspirational post, beautiful! I agree, happiness is more within our own control and we need to stop giving that power and responsibility to others. I love all the tips you've shared here, especially the one on unforgiveness and anger. It really can do so much damage to both your physical and mental health, so not worth it! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
