I'm a glass half full kind of girl, always have been.
No matter the situation or the struggle that's happening in my life, I always dig as deep as I can to see the best in every thing and every one. There are some, more so than others, who make easy to do. There are situations, no matter how hard I try I cannot see the best and emotions take over. I'm flawed. But, because of the innate desire in me to see the world as I want it to be and not how it is, I am genuinely a happy person.
To see the positive things in your life and ignore the negative is, I really truly believe, the key to happiness. No matter what your life is like, you will always find someone who is better or worse off than you. The richest person in the world could still find something negative in his life if he wanted to. It's there, but it's all about perspective.
Individual happiness is so attainable. Your first thoughts everyday set the tone. The way you react to stress, controls your perspective. The way you view your struggles, controls your perception of your victories. Actively seeing the positive is hard. It takes practice and work, but I promise, what you put out into the universe will come back to you. So, smile. Refuse to see the bad, block out the negativity, love like you will never be hurt and take the time to do something that makes your soul happy.
