Here is how you can get credit where credit is due. No, you don't need it from someone else. You can do it all by yourself.
Happiness is what we are all after, right? So how can we find it?
First, we have to accept that the things that make us blissful are always changing. I look at my life for example. Out of, say, 10 things that made me happy five years ago, I can pick out half that to be true today. The important stuff stays.
Positivity is Happiness. So, all you have to do is figure out what makes you happy and do more of those things. And figure out what you can spend your time doing that is in a positive motion in moving on with your life. If you're single and you're happy, be single and happy. Look within yourself to see when you feel the best and reorganize your time to do more of those things. Example: vaca baby! You like to set your sails and get out of the normalcy you call life? Great! I'm guessing that you're able to do that because you have good daily habits that promote a positive lifestyle (you have enough money to go on vacation and good time management skills to allow you to take a break.)
I'm going to enlighten you with a very important piece of purpose, it can be found in the MAKE IT HAPPEN planner, but for those of you who don't have one yet, here we go:
"IF YOU AINT HAPPY, NOBODY HAPPY"
Who are you?
What makes you happy?
How often do you do those things?
Can you utilize your time better to do MORE of those things?
How do you contribute to your own happiness?
How do you contribute to your own UNhappiness?
What can you do to stop? How can you change your habits?
I know a month seems like a long time to think ab your happiness, but take a month. Write down some answers, and figure out a plan. If you don't take accountability for yourself you are doomed until you do. If you take one step every day in the right direction you will reach your destination:)
