The good news is that sadness only lasts for a little bit, and happiness is just around the corner! Here are some life lessons that help me get happy.

  2. Don’t play the blame game: Don’t blame others for the bad things that happen in life. Take responsibility for your actions.
  3. Don’t be so hard on yourself: Give yourself a break! You are only human, and you are doing the best that you can.
  4. Leave the past in the past: Studies have shown that holding grudges is actually physically unhealthy! Forgive and forget and live in the present, not the past.
  5. Quit the complaining: When you complain, you drive people around you crazy. Plus, complaining about something doesn’t make it any better!
  6. Don’t stress to impress: Stop trying to impress everyone. Focus on making those you care about proud of you, and realize that you don’t need other people’s approval to feel good about yourself!
  7. Save the drama fo yo mamma: This one is pretty self explanitory!
  8. Value your relationships: Invest in friendships and relationships. When you put them first in your life you will find that you are so much happier!

Come on, get happy!
