What Is Happiness About?
Dramas & Setbacks in Life Don’t Necessarily Have to be Negative!
If only life could be a matter of effortlessly swinging from one success to the next. Your existence would be one long montage of happy moment after happy moment, a series of contented moments where everything feels right.
Alas, it can’t be. How could it? Life is ups and downs, roundabouts, swings and slides. Bad things will happen to you in life. You can’t control that. But you can control how you react to these dramas and setbacks, and if you react in the right way, those setbacks don’t have to be bad at all.
Losing Your Job
If you lose your job, it’s understandable that you’ll be worried about from where your next source of income will come from. But remember: people more celebrated than you have lost their jobs, and they’ve all gone on to be a success. If you stay calm, throw yourself into finding new work and see the setback as an opportunity to do something new, then it’ll all work out in the end. Of course, it won’t feel like that, to begin with, but when you look back in a few year’s time, you’ll see it as a good thing.
Of all the myriad aspects of life, none are as maddening or as hard to navigate than the murky world of love. If your relationship comes to an end, you have two options: accept it for what it was and move on (easier to do if you’re the one who ended it), or enact the no contact rule and wait for your significant other to see the error of their ways. Love is a rocky path to walk, but it’s always worth it in the end!
Time on Your Side
Getting older is much better than the alternative, but most people don’t see it that way. They want to stay young for as long as they can, but time will catch up with them eventually! The key is not to worry about growing older; you don’t have to accept the limitations that “age” puts on you.For example, if you want to dance and sing around as you did in your youth, then go ahead. Who cares if you get funny looks? Life’s too short not to do what you love, regardless of how old you are.
We swing from one branch to another when we’re young adults, but eventually, we fall into a routine, and then, before we know it, we can feel like we’ve stalled. If you’re feeling uninspired by how you’re living your life, then remember that you’re never too old, or young, to change who you are and start enjoying the good things to do in life. Be open to new experiences, and you never know where the process of change might take you.
🙂 Just Be
Whatever the setback you experience in life is, it’s important that you don’t let it overpower you. Feel it, but don’t be consumed by it. Things always get better in time, especially if you take care of the basics life offers and wait for good things to happen.
Thank you so much for your precious time
Stay positive & happy!
