In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sparkling or Still.”
A day off is honestly the only thing I’m looking forward to right now. A perfect day off for me would be both Sparkling & Still. I like to spend half of it just relaxing and literally doing nothing and talking to no one. Maybe watching TV and sometimes reading a book, which makes me very relaxed. Also, I would spend more time on my blog if I had a day off.
And the other half of my day I like to be all and about, going out and chilling with some friends where we can talk about how long and tiring our week was. Actually I would love to do some shopping too, who doesn’t like shopping? One of the favorite thing to do is relaxing by the beach beach I always imagine that my day off should be more than 24 hours because I always have no time for all the stuff I have in mind to finish.
Who wants to be happy? Definitely me!
Have ever wondered what can make you happy?
There is so many ways to make someone happy, some people become happier when having more “things” other are so happy when they have “Special People” in their life. Sometimes being happy is a feeling that is not usually depending on things or people, it’s a feeling that comes from within.
Here are some steps that I know can make most of us happy.
Start with yourself: sit with yourself in a quiet place that you feel comfortable at and start thinking of what makes you genuinely happy.
Decisions: After knowing what exactly makes you happy, take decisions that would make you feel such happiness. Some decision could be that you want to grow in your job, or work on having a better fitness or even buying a new car. Whatever makes you happier, start doing it!
Depend on yourself: So many of us make a huge mistake by depending on others to make ourselves happy which is totally WRONG!! What if this person is not there anymore? Are you going to be sad and start then looking for ways to cheer yourself up? Never depend on someone to be your main source of happiness because he/she will never be around forever.
Positivity: Surrounding yourself with negativity is definitely the last thing you want if and when you are trying to be a happy person. Start looking for positive energy that you could gain from positive people around you or even positive activities that you could start doing. A very positive activity would be Yoga for example which teaches you to concentrate on yourself and connect to your inner self as well. There are so many other activities that could help with your positivity.
Free yourself: The more stress in your life the more you become unhappy. Learn to de-stress yourself. Don’t overload yourself with so many emotions or so much effort that you’d end up being overly stressed. Organize your personal and your social life so you can make sure you feel better about yourself. (Read more: Who doesn’t stress out?)
I hope each and every one of you would find their source of happiness!
