Hello Fellow followers!
Did you know researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, completed a survey of over 1,300 healthy men, and found that pessimists had twice the risk of developing heart disease over a ten-year period compared to optimists? You can bet this made the optimistic men and their families- happy. That’s huge! But sadly many of us continually postpone our happiness, and its not that we consciously set out to do so, but that we keep convincing ourselves, “Someday I’ll be happy”. We tell ourselves we’ll be happy when our bills are paid; when we complete school, get our first job or promotion. We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, or when our spouse gets his or her act together. Meanwhile, life keeps moving forward.
The truth is there’s no better time to be happier than right now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to acknowledge this and decide to be happy anyway.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes about deciding to be happy …
“The most important thing is to enjoy your life- to be happy- it’s all that matters.” – Audrey Hepburn
“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy”. – Dada Vaswan
-Be happy with being you. Love your flaws. Own your quirks. And know that you are just as perfect as anyone else, exactly as you are. –Ariana Grande
