“I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous, and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.” - Beau Taplin
Appreciate life even if it’s not perfect. No matter what life brings you, find the courage to be grateful regardless.
Start romanticizing your life
Fall in love with your life, unconditionally, and it will love you back. Wake up every day, with the awareness that you are the main character in your own story and you can decide how you want to see life.
“You gotta start believing that your morning commute is cute and fun, that every cup of coffee is the best you’ve ever had, that the smallest and most mundane things are exciting and new. You have to because that’s when you truly start living. That’s when you look forward to every day.” -unknown
Incorporate at least one of your favorite thing into your daily life. Even if it's a bad day, at least there’s one thing that will make you happy!
