|Happiness isn’t a destination, Patricia Bokowski, it’s a realization that things couldn’t possibly get any better than having the freedom to perceive as you please and to think as you choose, in a magical, adoring Universe.|

“A wise woman once said ‘f*ck this sh*t’ and she lived happily ever after.” – NineFrogs
Who’s to say?
Here’s the thing.
When it comes to your happiness.
I notice things.
One thing in particular I am noticing these days.
That there are far too many.
Unhappy people out there.
I think we all see it..
I see it every time I go to 7-11.
People who have given up.
You can see it in their faces ;-(
They way they walk.
Their entire body language.
Says: I’m done!
Here’s something people need to understand:
YOU NEED TO STOP waiting for life to be perfect to be happy! 👈👈👈
Because THAT my friends is never going to happen!
Just look at what’s happening.
In the world these days.
But, that is still!
Not a reason to not be happy!
We need to normalize.
That you can be happy.
And not have your sh*t together.
I hear so many people.
With so many excuses.
How NOT to be happy.
Like, “Patti, with what’s going on in the world.
How can I be happy?”
I’ve said this many times before.
The world has always had sh*t happening.
Just look at history.
Do you think your.
Great-grandparents weren’t happy?
They found a way.
To be happy!
Here’s a little nugget on the benefits of being happy.
It makes you think better!
It’s extremely hard.
To think “better” when you’re unhappy.
Don’t believe me?
Next time you aren’t happy.
Try solving a problem, successfully.
Absolute proven fact.
Maybe not a proven scientific fact.
But, you get my point!
When you are happy.
You absolutely “think” better!
Which puts you.
In a much better situation.
To solve any problems.
That come your way.
The benefits of being ‘happy’ .
Far out way, NOT being happy!
So, choose happiness.
Every f’ing day!
Want to be really happy?👈👈👈
Come out of your comfort zone.
See what you’re made of!
If it works out YOU WON👈👈👈
And if it doesn’t, you learned a lesson!
And that my friends is…
Another reason why so many people.
Are so unhappy.
They keep doing the same sh*t.
Doing the same sh*t.
That makes them unhappy?
So, here’s my advise.
Try something new!
Go find your happiness!
Here’s the thing you need to know.
All roads that lead to happiness.
May not look like the road you thought?
Is why you need to take chances.
Ever meet someone new.
And you click immediately!
Yet, you say to yourself.
This person is so NOT my type.
Give it a try.
Because you never know.
Ever offered a great opportunity?
Something you never would have thought of?
It is brought to you.
On a whim.
And you are unsure if you should take it?
If there is a slight bit of chance.
That it’s going to make you happy.
Don’t worry about!
What other’s might think.
Of YOUR choices!
Want to be happy?
You knew I was going to say it 🙂
Every person you see today.
Give ’em a big ole smile.
Whether you feel like it or not!👈👈👈
And I don’t care if you have to fake it.
Do it anyway.
The sheer act of smiling.
Will make you happy(ier).
Once you see everyone smiling back.
It will make you happy.
It’s like a whole catch 22 thing going on.
So, you heard it from me!
Remember how Robin Williams?
Made us laugh.
And not just a little.
He made us laugh ALOT!
Because he knew.
He knew how it felt NOT to not be happy.
Little did we know.
He was fighting his own demons.
But that didn’t stop him.
He put everything in his power to entertain us.
And he did it so beautifully.
A perfect example.
Of how you can be happy.
Even when your life.
You literally owe it to yourself!
To find your happiness today.
In case you lost it.
And if you haven’t.
I’m proud of you <3
I’ve told this story before.
I call it my deli story.👈👈👈
It was a hot summer day.
And I went to get some cold cuts.
At the deli counter of my local grocery store.
I recognized the guy behind the counter.
And gave him a little smile 😉
He looked at me like his dog had died.
He looked REALLY sad ;-(
I asked him how his day was going.
And he answered ‘miserable.’
Me being me.
I was like.
I have to get this guy smiling 🙂
So, I gave him my order.
And then we got to talking:
Him: What can I get you?
Me: Half pound of American Cheese please?
Him: What kind, Boars Head or the one on sale?
Me: Well, I don’t know, you’re the expert here, you pick 😉
Him: (He started to crack a little smile), you’re right, I am the expert here…
By the time he was done with my order.
He was smiling.
As I was about to walk away.
I said to him:
“I hope the rest of your day gets better”.
He looked at me and said:
‘it already is”.
That’s what I’m talking about👈👈👈
And guess what?
We both were smiling!
Are you looking at me?
YOU HAVE THE POWER!
So many people forget that.
You have the power.
If someone is being a negative-nelly to you.
Have them removed.
If there is a situation that bothers you.
Get out of it.
There is no one.
Worth your happiness.
Not EVEN MONEY!
That’s a BIG one.
I read this recently:
“If you are driving your Mercedes to a job you hate.“
I’m pretty sure Gary Vee said that.
Money does not equal happiness.
Go get happy!
I’m going to say it.
One more time!
Do not put the keys to your happiness.
In someone else’s pocket.
We’ve all been there.
And if your like me.
You learned the hard way.
The really hard way.
Which is why I say.
Don’t do it!
Who’s to say?
