The very many challenges life has given us sometimes makes this seem nearly impossible but here’s my advice, there are so many beautiful reasons to be happy and love life, find one, stick with it and be happy.
For you to find reasons to be happy, you need to say to yourself, “I want to be happy”. When you open up your mind to this possibility amidst your problem and challenges then it becomes easier for you to find reasons to be indeed happy. The happiest people aren’t the ones who have the least problems and challenges or the ones with the most wealth, attention, love etc. they are however those who choose to be happy and find reasons every now and then to smile. “Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended, but what you are doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness, you can choose not to let this little things upset you” – Joel Osteen
Learning and finding how to be happy is very possible, being happy makes you healthier, wonder why we always want to share our lives with loved ones like parents, children, boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, aunty, uncle, friends and so on? It is because they genuinely care about us and we all want people who are going to be there unconditionally, this is one thing to be happy about that you haven’t even considered. Knowing that there are people who have got your back always is enough reason to be happy. If you are always finding reasons to be unhappy, then you will always find a million of them. Pay attention to your own life. Being unhappy when you are around your loved ones is toxic, you are always going to corrupt the mood of others, disrupt the positive energy flowing and sometimes generally cause disharmony. You must realize that your loved ones are a big reason to be happy and you must see this reason and be happy. Being happy comes with loving yourself, when you love yourself, you can then be able to love others, and you get loved in return and you notice it’s all love around you and this creates a positive atmosphere and genuine happiness. “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved” –George sand

Tina Turner once said “my greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments- I will use a little bit of everything.

Trying to live a happy life is not about denying negative emotions or pretending to feel joyful all the time. There are challenges in life that leads to sadness and frustration. Realistically in this world of ours, there are so many things, poverty, violence, sadness and the likes which makes it easy to lean towards negativity. You have to make a mental effort towards being happy. Happiness is about being able to make the most of the good times.
