“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama XIV
I think one of the best things a human can do is fill their life with things that make them happy, as well as sharing those things with others. Because of this, I will be sharing a handful of things that have gotten me through the past month or so.
- Sitting in the sunshine
- Walking at dusk
- Listening to music and podcasts
- Making plans that I can look forward to
- Deep conversations
- Saying yes to spur of the moment activities
- Hugging those I love
- Hearing people’s life stories
I would highly recommend you create your own list of things that make you happy, and then try to fill your life with those things. The power is in your hands, don’t put your happiness or emotions into the hands of others or in something that you cannot control.
Create an environment that feeds your soul and fosters happiness. Serotonin is a beautiful thing, don’t take it for granted, and don’t go too long without it.
With that being said, what is making you happy?
