Finding Peace

· Make optimism your reality. Look for the bright side in a dark situation.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” - Albus Dumbledore

   ·  Everyone makes mistakes. We’re human. Learn from them and move forward. The triumphs of your future await you.

·    Always strive towards a better you. Use your time for improvement and don’t waste precious moments on complaints and criticism (of yourself and others).

·    Find your inner peace. Commit yourself to having the strength and determination to hold onto it, no matter what the circumstances.

·    Believe that the whole world is on your side… and it will be.

·    Be the best possible you.
Be true to you. 

“The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.” 
- Marcus Aurelius.

The Pursuit of Happiness: 15 Lessons to Keep in Mind

happy woman facing the sun

1. The only person that can ever truly make you happy is yourself. Stop depending on everyone else.
2. People lie, stuff happens. Don’t take it too personally.

3. Want people to think you’re amazing? Start believing you are, and then they will too.

4. Smiling is the ultimate anti-depressant. Smile and laugh out loud, it doesn’t look stupid, I promise. 

5. The world is never just black and white, right or wrong, one way or another. Try and see things from as many points of view as possible. 

6. "Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final"
Rainer Maria Rilke

7. Have empathy.

8. Gossip, problems of the past, events you cannot control, negative thoughts and negative people; time spent on these is time poorly wasted. 

9. When you're jealous or find yourself filled with hate for someone/something, stop. The only person its hurting is you.

10. Although the newest, most expensive material things may make you feel as if you’re a better person, they won’t hold you at night or listen to you when you need it. Make sure your priorities make sense.

11. Step outside your comfort zone- it’s when you’ll really feel alive.

12. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, the people who really matter, don’t mind

13. Let your emotions out sometimes, humans have them for a reason.

14. Celebrate the things you have. Think only positively of the things you don’t (but would like to have) and they too will come.

15. Love unconditionally ♥.
