The Best Way To Be Happy Is To Do This.

Life can hit you like a ton of bricks.

One day you’re aimlessly scrolling, feeling comfortably uncomfortable, then BAM.

You get smacked with a piece of knowledge that hits your reality harder than a declined credit card.

And recently, I was fortunate enough to experience one of these moments.

Very few times do I find advice on the internet that moves me.

It’s not that I’m incapable of being moved… like Snorlax without the pokéflute.

 But drowning in the sea of cold-showers, millionaire morning routine, and general get-your-shit-together discipline… it’s hard to see a life raft.

Well, a friend shared with me a good piece of advice that contrasted so sharply that it stood out like stripes on a Zebra.

Remember to Be Happy

And wow… it stopped me… because I haven’t considered that before.

Hell, that thought never crossed my mind.

Remember to be happy? What the hell does that even mean?

I have an email to send.

I have a dog to walk.

Have you seen the laundry? The laundry has gotten so big that it will grow arms and fold me into a fortune cookie.

Remember to be happy.

I love that recommendation because it forces you to change your perspective.

And when you’re fed up with all that life throws at you, it’s easy to ignore your emotional state.

This simple suggestion completely changed how I view life, and I’m so thankful for it.

And come to think of it… why wouldn’t anyone choose to be happy?

I mean, as great as being completely stressed out all the time is… it’s amazing the changes a conscience decision can bring.

Remember to be happy.

Who knows, you just may smile.

Please, like, comment, and tell me what you think. Do you remember to be happy? If you like this, please share it with a friend.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, it made my day! So this is a serious piece, but even when writing something serious I always try to use humor.

      I’m always torn to write about personal development or just humor/ satire… so I do both ….

      So happy you enjoyed

  1. Love this! It definitely made me smile as well as prompted me to be happy. It’s a reminder that we’re still in control of our emotions. No matter what happens, we control how we respond. Thanks for sharing.
