No matter what is going on around you.
Your happiness is crucial to your well-being.
We’re talking about different ways to either keep, or find. your happiness.
And if you are already happy.
Then maybe some ways to increase yours!
Keep is positive.
Anytime a negative thought enters your head.
Let it go.
Positive thoughts only.
Your brain will just keep feeding you more positive thoughts.
Read positive material.
Listen to positive material.
Surround yourself with positive people.
And if they aren’t any of the above.
Boot them to the curb as my friend Greg would say👈👈👈
Help someone else!
Even when you are feeling down.
One of the best ways to find your happiness is to help someone else find theirs.
I’m sure there is someone in your life who could use your help.
Maybe it’s a phone call?
Make a lunch date with someone you haven’t seen in a while.
Now is the time to be thinking of others.
You may be okay.
They may not.
Please, be kind.
Never lower your frequency.
That will undoubtedly make you unhappy.
Never lower your standards.
Never disrespect yourself.
That’s a lesson I learned the hard way.
But once you understand that.
YOU WILL NEVER let that happen again.
Know your power.
Know your intentions.
And follow that everyday.
Stay true to who you are.
And don’t worry about what others think.
What ‘they’ think is no business of yours.

Feeling good about yourself on the outside will help you feel good on the inside.”

The simple act of smiling will make you feel better.
It’s a scientific fact. NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Okay, maybe not a scientific fact.
But, it works for me!
I talk about smiling A LOT.
Because it’s That important.
You get double bonus points if you make someone else smile.
(it’s like kindness, throw that sh*t around like confetti!)✨✨✨
You were born to stand out.
And you don’t need anyone’s permission to do so.
Not only should you shine.
You should shine like a big, beautiful motherf*cker 👈👈👈
Here’s the thing though.
There’s a difference.
One helps other’s feel good about themselves.
The other, does not.
Stop comparing yourself to other people!
You are uniquely you, own it!
As the saying goes, “comparison is the thief of joy!”
So stop doing it.
Don’t worry about who’s grass is greener.
Worry about your own grass.
And grow a God d*mn field of lilies.
You are you.
Don’t worry about what other’s are doing.
I am SO busy doing my own thing.
I don’t pay attention to what anyone else is doing.
I just expand on everything I do everyday.
To the best of my abilities.
And even those.
I try and refine as the days go by.
Just set your attention to the be the BEST YOU everyday!

You live everyday.
You only die once.”

My good friend Helene told me that whenever she’s not having a great day.
Or she’s feeling a little down.
She goes out and pulls weeds from her garden.
And she said.
She always feels better.
So, whether you are pulling weeds or planting flowers.
Mother nature has a wonderful way of connecting us back to her.
And her soothing qualities.
Get up, dress up, show up and NEVER give up!
I cannot emphasize this one enough👈👈👈
Before you walk into your living room.
Take a quick look in the mirror and ask yourself:
“is this the image I’ve chosen to show my family who I am today”?
Looking and feeling your best.
Are the keys to self-confidence.
And when you have real self-confidence.
You can move mountains.
Now is the time to start.
Start working on your dreams!
That’s where you will find true happiness!
Stop looking for happiness outside of yourself!
YOU are the only one who can make YOU happy.
Other people can add to your happiness.
But you are in charge of your happiness.
And here is BIG reminder.
Stop giving the keys to YOUR happiness to someone else.
Your happiness, your responsibility!
Stop playing small.
You are meant to do GREAT things in your life.
It’s just, no one tells us that.
We have to find out for ourselves.
I believe that’s why so many people are so unhappy.
They have unfilled dreams.
They let them slip away.
Because everyone around them told them they couldn’t do it.
Whatever ‘it’ was.
Don’t let that be you.
I never knew real happiness until I started my business in 2012.
The BEST decision I ever made for myself.
I am in control of my life.
I do what makes ME happy.
And a big part of that.
Is making other people happy!
See how that works?
I stopped waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel and lit that b*tch up myself!
You want to be happy?
Take control of your life!
I’ve said it over and over.
Stop giving away your power.
And take it back.
YOU have to take control.
And start doing the things that make YOU happy.
Stop going along with the crowd.
And find what makes YOU happy.
To heck with anyone else.
Stop following the crowd.
“You are the sum of the five people you hang out with!”
Make sure they are the kind of people who make you feel like sunshine.
Make sure they are the kind of people who clap at ALL your wins.
Make sure they are the kind of people who always support you and your dreams.
Make sure they are the kind of people who make you HAPPY!
You knew I had to get smiling on my list!
I mean, how you can you be happy without smiling?
The sheer act of a smile.
Makes you happy.
Double bonus points.
Make someone else smile today 🙂
See how that changes your day?
I do it everyday.
Makes me happy 🙂

We’re all so busy these days.
Doing God knows what.🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
That we forget all about having fun sometimes.
Remember when you were a kid?
Before you learned how to worry 😉
When all you had to think about was what kind of fun you were going to have that day?
Give yourself a break, myself included.
Go have some fun!
WORK WILL ALWAYS BE THERE!
You are a victim of the rules you live by👈👈👈
So what rules are you living by that’s stopping your happiness?
What thoughts are you thinking that prevents you from being happy?
Because, that’s usually what messes up people’s happiness.
All the ‘don’ts’ they put on themselves.
And in the process.
Block their happiness.
Might be time for a re-evaluation of your life.
Life is all about failures.
The failures let us know we are alive.
Failure is also a part of success.
It’s like, you can’t appreciate a sunny day.
If you didn’t know what a rainy day was like.
So, don’t be afraid to fail.
Be afraid to life a dull, mediocre life.
BE that person.
The one that takes chances.
That’s also where you find your happiness!
Something they don’t tell you.
One of my personal favorites.
Frank got it right.
Don’t be afraid of ANYONE OR ANYTHING.
That’s how you lose your power.
AND, your happiness.
YOU are greater than any problem or person.
They just try and intimate you into submission.
Don’t let that be you.
Don’t lose your power.
And, certainly, don’t lose your happiness!
Because you are destined for GREATNESS👈👈👈
