I wish you happiness. Not the kind that bubbles up and then disappears, but the kind you feel deep in your bones.
I wish you joy. I hope that you always find a friend to laugh with and a shoulder to cry on.
I Wish You Happiness
“It’s rebellious, in a way, to choose joy, to choose to dance, to choose to love your life.”
– Cold Tangerines
I hope that your days are filled with endless adventures and you stay up late into the night talking about your philosophy of life and what this all means.
I wish you exciting times and boring times, times to rejoice over and times to mourn.
I wish you a full spectrum of life, bursting at the seams with hues of color.
I wish you a freshly-picked flower on a rainy day and chocolate for any occasion.
I hope that you find the courage to do something courageous every once in a while, and the bravery it takes to stand up to your adversaries.
I hope your life is filled with life and in between calm moments of peace, there are always speckled moments of excitement.
But most of all, I wish you happiness and success in your life.

The Secret to Happiness is Already in Front of You
If you’re looking for the secret to happiness, here it is:
You have to choose this.
It’s that simple, and that complex.
No one else can make you be happy or walk this journey for you.
You have to choose this.
And after you choose to be happy, you have to commit to making it happen. Knowing that it is just going to happen, instead of hoping or wishing that one day it might happen.
It happens when you make it happen.
That’s not to say you should force anything to happen, just that you need to be putting in consistent, daily effort.
Effort on what?
Lots of things. Gratitude, meditation, exercise, forgiveness, mindset, personal development. Anything you want to do to become a happier person.
Study self help books daily. Read inspirational quotes. It’s amazing to see that humans throughout history have already figured out everything you need to know about being happy and fulfilled with your life.
Seriously, look at our recovery tips or go read a bunch of inspirational quotes. They are full of centuries of wisdom from people who know their stuff.
Write down three things you’re grateful for every day. Gratitude takes whatever situation or circumstances you have and makes it into something worth being grateful for. With a tiny mindset shift to “I’m so thankful for…” you can turn what you already have into enough.
Exercise if you’re feeling depressed. Eat something healthy. Drink lots of water. Having a healthy body can only help your mind.
Forgive people. Forgive your past. Forgive yourself, for everything past, present, and future.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
And work on improving your mindset about things above all else. How can you see this in a positive way? Always look for the positive in any situation. How would a happy person act? How would you behave if you were a person who loved themselves? And so on.
That’s it. That’s all there is to happiness.
Choose to be happy, commit to making it happen, and then take consistent, daily action to work on yourself and get there.
