It’s still the beginning of a new year, for those recently affected by the government shut, or suffered any type of loss–the year started horribly. For others, the year may be going wonderful but for those of you who might not be having much of a “happy new year”, I have some solutions to try to change the way the tide is pulling so far.
At the time of this blog post, there are 10 more months to tackle in 2019, that means there’s plenty of time remaining to make a turn around for the better!
Here are my recommendations:
THINK, take some alone time to be still, be present in the now, reflect and think on where you are, what are the causes and what can be done within your control to turn things around.
TAKE ACTION, you can’t expect things to just happen whether it be luck or an act of God. You have but a short duration to be sad, angry or any other combination of emotions before people stop empathizing with you and it turns to pity or avoidance. So, get up and do the work! Forgive that person, make those calls, set those goals, face your fears.
DONT GIVE UP, anything in life worth attaining (even if its happiness)—takes work. We have to choose happiness daily. Find happiness is seizing everything on your agenda each day.
Try to be happy where you are, in the midst of doubt, unfortunate events and the unknown—as hard as it may be to do, happiness is an active choice— and it’s easier to achieve when you are making daily strides to change your present situation.
