Why You Deserve To Have a GREAT Day

Today has all the potential of being a GREAT day. You (yes, you) deserve to have a great day. Do yourself a favor and take some time to reflect and think about what it would take for you to have a great day and do it.

You are a person who is worthy and deserving of happiness.

Even if you're not having a good day so far, know that it's okay. It's part of being human. Unfortunate things happen, and it's normal to have an emotional reaction to them. Just know that your day isn't completely over, and that there is time to make it better, even if it's just a little bit.

For me, all I really need is a cup of coffee and some time with my family to make my day whole. A cup of coffee is my daily morning ritual where I ponder, reflect, and plan out my day. Spending time with my family keeps me grounded and my heart fulfilled. There are other things I like doing such as exercising and working on my creative projects, but those are added bonuses.

Anyway, I wish you a great day :)

3 Easy (and FREE) Ways To Give Happiness

Happiness is a gift. Its something everyone deserves, but unfortunately, not everyone has. Having a happy life is what parents wish for their kids. Being happy is what couples wish for each other in their relationship. We are all capable of receiving happiness, but it's good to be reminded that we are definitely capable of generating happiness.

Based on my decades of life experience, here are the three easy (and free) ways you can spread happiness:

1. Give Your Presence

There is only one you in all of existence. Offering yourself in the form of friendship, companionship, or support is a selfless way to be for the benefit of others. Being physically there with someone shows that person that s/he is special and worthy enough of your presence.

Spending time with people is truly one of the best ways to make other people (and yourself) happy.

2. Give Your Time

The time that you have on this Earth is limited, and you can't spend every minute of it with everyone. When you spend time with people, you are showing them that you are actively choosing to spend your limited time with them, which truly is a gift. You could spend it in so many different ways, yet you chose to spend them with them. By giving your time, you are giving others something precious that you can never get back.

3. Give Your Attention

Nowadays with screens all over the place, giving someone your undivided and full attention is precious. It seems like everywhere I look, I see people on their smartphones, tablets, or some other type of screen and becoming more antisocial. To give someone all your mental focus is to give someone else all that you are. By listening to their stories, problems, or good news, it shows that what they have to say is important, and that they are important too.

Obviously, there are many more ways to give happiness to others, but these are simple enough for anyone (including you) to do on a daily basis. If more people in the world genuinely gave others their presence, time, and attention, the world would be a much happier place.

How Taking Action Affects Your Happiness

Life rewards action. Taking action gets your closer to your goals and dreams. Taking action gets things done. Everything that you have accomplished in your life happened because you put time, effort, focus, and practice into your goals. You are where you are in life because of the actions that you have taken (and all the actions you haven't taken).

Of course, not every single piece of action you took may have had your desired outcome. Try not to think of those times as "failures," but times that you learned a good life lesson. Other people frame them as "learning opportunities." Even if some of your actions don't take you where you want to be, it's always important to try.

You've probably heard the Wayne Gretzky quote, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." There is a lot of truth in that. Even champion hockey players don't make 100% of their shots, but they need to take action and try to make those goals in order to actually score.

In romance and relationships, taking the initiative to talk to someone and start a relationship will get you closer to being in a relationship than not taking any action.

Being happy is a luxury that people are fortunate to have. Attaining your goals, having your health, earning enough wealth for a comfortable lifestyle, and having meaningful relationships are all factors that affect your happiness. Moving towards a life that you're extraordinarily proud of is worth taking action for.
