How to be Happy

  • Take a walk every day. You need the fresh air and the time alone whether you know it or not.
  • Notice the little things. Don't get so caught up in the red, yellow, and blue that you never see the turquoise, magenta, and the olive.
  • Be honest. Be honest with others and with yourself. A lie will never get you anywhere but stuck in the mud. The kind of mud you don't easily get out of.
  • Play with children. They know the basic meaning of life that you have forgotten among the details of a busy schedule. 
  • Be creative. School will stimulate the left side of your brain very well but that's only half of your brain. Make sure you are stimulating the right side of your brain as much as you can.
  • Enjoy being with people. When their gone you'll miss them.
  • Enjoy being alone. When you're not you'll miss it.
  • Become a good listener. Value the opinions of others even when you don't agree. 
  • Show your love for others in all the different ways you can. Verbalize your love, give up your time, give gifts, provide services, and love through physical touch.
  • Keep good posture. You'll thank yourself for it in the long run. 
  • Go out in the storm and enjoy the rain. Don't let disasters ruin your fun.
  • Stay clean. You'll make more friends that way.
  • Take a sick day. Sometimes being tough is realizing when you need a break.
  • Take lots of pictures. Your life is important and it deserves to be remembered.
  • Live in the moment. As a wise turtle once said "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but to day is a gift; that's why we call it the present."
  • Prepare for the future. Whether you like it or not it comes and you better be ready for it.
  • Love yourself. Might as well! You'll never live a day without you so it might be better to enjoy it rather than hate it.
  • Smile. It's simple but true; if you smile you'll find yourself brightening both your life and others.
  • Live. Don't survive. Live.
