Monday Motivation: November #4

Wow, can we all just stop and talk about last week's weather?! If you're from Kuwait, you know what I mean! The weather here has been, if I may put it into words, crazy. It was raining non-stop for almost three days and the streets started to flood and although it was wonderful bed weather, I still needed a way to get to work. Luckily, my shifts weren't too busy since no one (else) was crazy enough to go out in weather like that. Anyway! This brings me to what I want to talk about with you guys today. So many terrible things have been happening around the world lately and it's times like these where it's difficult to still believe that things will be okay, that people can still find happiness within all this. I mean, isn't happiness something we all want? Whether we acknowledge it or not, every dream or goal we set for our self comes with a wish of finding happiness within it. 

In today's post, I want to talk about how you can find your happiness. This is my personal belief and opinion and I'm only sharing it with you guys to show you that reaching "happiness" is simply a choice and it doesn't need to be so complicated.

The main key is really thinking positive. No matter what situation you're put in, there's ALWAYS something good that can come of it. Sometimes it might seem really difficult to see a light in what feels like a terrible situation, but I promise you if you stick long enough, the sun will shine. I'm not saying that it's wrong to feel sad sometimes because we're all human and it happens. That's 100% fine but never let the sadness consume you. Once you practice and achieve the habit of positive thinking, you're already half way into finding your happiness.

The next thing I want to talk about is the people you surround yourself with because they can really affect how you react to things. I remember when I had to take my nursing licensure exam, I was already feeling very anxious and it didn't help when I listened to people also stressing about it. I tried to distance myself from that attitude because I knew that if I didn't, it would rub off on me and I didn't need that! I need you to take a look at the people you surround yourself with. Are they bringing you up or pulling you down? The only kind of friends that are worthy of keeping are the ones who bring out the best in you.

Finally, the biggest tip I can share is finding something you truly enjoy and focusing on that. For example, I really enjoy books, music and blogging. These are the things that I integrate into my everyday life so that even though nothing special is going on that day, i still find myself enjoying the day because of those things. I hope this makes sense! All I'm saying is try to find something you're passionate about and keep doing it!

Try to think of happiness as a way of living and not just a mere destination. We all hold a key to our own happiness and I truly hope you can find yours!

Have a great week ahead, everyone!

  1. I agree with all of your points. Happiness is desired and yet sometimes we make it too difficult for ourselves; we put ourselves down with the help of people that we don't need to determine our happiness, we hold onto negativity because that's what we're supposed to do, right? The only way I can think of putting is: NO. Ha!

    Yay for happiness! :-)

    This post has really put me in a positive mood.
