Four Steps To A Happier You

May 7, 2017

In our technological age, we are constantly being flooded with images or stories of people with luxurious lifestyles. It does become very hard not to compare our lives with those around us. When being constantly told that we should do more, look better, and have more things... we start to become discouraged by our current lot in life. Then we wonder why we are sad, or feeling gloom more than we should. So I came up with a list of four steps to make you a happier person, and you can start today!

Step One: Forgiveness.

This isn't just about forgiving those that have wronged you or hindered your growth as a person in some way. I mean, yes you should do that too, but I want to talk about forgiving yourself. Forgive yourself for those things that you are holding on to. Maybe it's forgiving yourself for not taking that chance five years ago, quitting college, or maybe it's as simple as forgiving yourself for the snickers bar you ate at lunch. Whatever it is, give yourself permission to to forgive yourself. You don't deserve to feel guilty forever.

Step Two: Gratitude.

I'm sure if you really take a step back and analyze your life, you will realize that you have more than you think you do. Sure, you may have a beat up car, but at least you have one. Do you have a family that loves you? Chances are you do, and that is something that you can always be thankful for. Just try being thankful for the clothing on your back or the air that your breathing. Trust me when I say a lot of people have it worse than you and everything works in will get past whatever troubles you are having so for now hold on to things you are thankful for.

Step Three: Acceptance.

So let's talk about that beat up car you are thankful for, you probably want a nicer one. That is 100% acceptable, but unless you are just hiding money chances are you can't just run off and buy one right now. It's also okay to want a new car, but it is not okay to be Mrs. Grumpy pants because your friend just bought one. Accepting your situation as it is right now is hard. But it will make you happier. Accepting that you can't completely change your life overnight is okay!  Also, when I say that you are accepting your situation doesn't mean that you aren't going to ever change it...which leads to the final step.

Step Four: Change.

And....back to that car. You're thankful for it, you have accepted you can't go purchase a brand new one today but that doesn't mean it will always be that way and that's what you need to look forward to. You need to be able to change yourself, your situation, whatever it is in your life that is making you unhappy. If you want to make more money, take the necessary changes and steps to make that happen. You can't continue to do the same routine and except your situation to change. You have to be willing to put the blood, sweat and tears into it! Change is hard, very hard. I hate change honestly, and it took me a long time to realize that I should make many of them. Don't be like me, start changing now.

If your thinking "it can't be that simple", it 100% can. Google is amazing, it can help you figure out what changes you need to become whatever it is in life that you need to be!!! I would love to chat with you about your fears, your hopes, your dreams! Just send me a message any time!!
