It’s Up to You

“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.” – John Barrymore

Happiness is completely up to us. It’s our choice to think positively, act positively, and live with happiness. I offer a lot of advice and ways to do this, but I don’t have all the answers. It’s also not my job to tell you how to live a beautiful life. I’m here to write about what matters to me and the things that make my life beautiful in the hopes of affecting others.

My positivity started from another person’s influence. A simple blog on Tumblr that was filled with positive messages and how great life is got me in a positive mindset. Something clicked. Something was right.

I knew that no matter how difficult things got, there was always a way to turn a situation around. Sometimes it is going to be more difficult than other times to see this, but we have to be willing to let happiness in. It’s not something that can be forced, but rather something that can be learned.

There are so many different things that bring joy and positivity in our lives. There are probably things that could make my life even better than it is right now and I just haven’t discovered them yet. The important thing to remember is that I’m going to learn what those things are, and you bet I’m going to share them with you! Life is an incredible journey and we have to stay positive even through challenging times. We have to keep the door open for positivity.
