I frequently have people ask me how I'm always happy and walk around with (what seems to be) a constant smile on my face--and the answer is simple-- if you think positively, it's easy to be happy and content with the life you call your own. Now don't get me wrong, sure I have those days just like everyone else where things go wrong and I sit and sulk... but that's where it stops. To be happy, you must only think good thoughts and always look on the bright side about what's to come next.

From an early age, my Mom taught me to be thankful for the blessings in my life and to always have a positive outlook--there are so many aspects of my life where I could hold grudges when things didn't go my way (yes, the only child syndrome rears its ugly head), but with every hurdle I've had to face in my 26 years, I've picked up and kept going. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets so I believe that you should learn from your mistakes and move on with your life, but never look back with regret. This life is far too short to sit and ponder about the misfortunes you have to deal with...

"therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow
will worry about itself. each day has enough trouble of its own"
"do what makes you happy, be with who makes you smile,
laugh as much as you breathe, and love as long as you live"
"happiness is the secret to all beauty. there is no beauty that is attractive without happiness"

  1. I couldn't agree more! I grew up looking over at my Grandmother ANY time of the day with a smile literally plastered of her face. It is an inspiration to be happy and look at the world in a positive manner. Plus a "bad" day really isn't that bad.
