Rays of light touching our skin feel as though they are gifts of happiness from the sun. The sun provides us with our best source of vitamin D, encouraging us to be healthy, happy and have more energy. Is the sun our answer to happiness or are there better ways to be happy? 🙂
Each person is unique. We all have needs that vary from person to person. What makes one individual happy, may not work for another. Different ways that can make us happy include: spending quality time with loved ones, doing the things we love, achieving our goals, appreciating the success of another being, eating our favourite foods and learning something new (having new experiences). Of course there are many more ways that can make you happy, these are ones that I have chosen as I feel they are relatable to most people.
Spending quality time with loved ones is important since communication and love make us feel acknowledged, needed and wanted. Validating our very existence. Loneliness is never pleasant, often it can lead to depression, being unhappy and self pity. We need support from others, even if it is every now and then. If you do not have a close relationship with your family, you can always see your closest friends as family. Create the family that you need ❤
If you have no-one in your life to spend time with. There are many ways to talk to people. The great thing about the internet is that we can connect with others instantly (which can also be bad, but let’s focus on the good). What is good, is that you can join forums, groups and meetups all online, and best of all, you can connect with people who have similar interests to you. Make sure that you are safe by never giving out personal information. Get to know people online over a long period of time before you see them in person. If the day comes to meet someone, do it in daylight and in a public place.
Always remember that we each have intentions and some people do not have the best intentions in mind. It is tricky as we want to be open to new friendships but we need to cautious. The online world is a place where anyone can be anyone – do not be naive. Always go with your gut feeling. If all is good, you are then able to have your lovely world of loving family and friends, making your world brighter. You can share passions with them and they can do the same with you. So much joy to be shared! 😀
Doing the things we love could possibly be the most relatable to many people. As you feel your best when you are enjoying yourself, right? I know that when I am deep in my element, whether it be with writing, painting or drawing. I feel amazing. Being creative makes me feel extremely happy. Doing what we love leads to the success of fulfillment. When we complete tasks and achieve goals it makes us feel happy as it is fulfilling. Happiness comes from action, so obtaining a goal is a great source to be happy.
A beautiful way to be happy is to appreciate someone else’s success. This may be hard for some to find happiness in, as people can be jealous when others achieve something that they themselves, greatly want. If you are currently like this (or at times get like this) you need to learn to see their success in a different light. Think of it this way – you want to obtain what they have achieved, right? Well, isn’t it great that it is obtainable. You can see that it can be done, as they have achieved it ❤
Wouldn’t it be harder to achieve if no-one else had achieved such a goal yet? It does not matter, that they achieved it before you. What truly matters is that you know it is achievable. Seeing it in a positive way like this, you should now be able to appreciate that it can be yours too. There is proof right in front of you! It is great to know this! When we see an individual achieving greatness, we need to cheer them on and hopefully they can do the same back. I want everyone to achieve what it is, that they want most in life.
There is plenty of room for us to each live our goals and dreams. I think we can all agree that food is a satisfying source of happiness, especially when shared in good company. Food makes me feel so happy haha. I am a huge foodie! I love to travel to different countries for nature, culture, meeting different people and you guessed it, food! It is an amazing feeling, trying different foods. Food seriously is life, do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. I have a huge sweet tooth so I particularly love desserts. I do my best to eat healthy.
Fruits and vegetables are foods I enjoy as well. Travelling is happiness, that makes you fly beyond your wildest dreams lol. It is a great way to experience new things. We each need new experiences regularly as it keeps life exciting. When we do something new it can be fun, which makes us happy. Doing something new is best shared with a partner, friends or family, than alone. Having love and being able to create memories are beautiful gifts of life 🙂
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a sunset pastel painting that is full of happiness. Whenever I am creating art, my mind relaxes and drifts off into another world. It makes me feel very happy. To be happy often we have to put in the effort. Action is key for happiness!
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Do more of what makes you happy. Get out of you comfort zone and connect with others. Find happiness in embracing each others success. Let’s all support each other. Have a great day!
