Immediately I googled the phrase to find out its origin and found this: 100 Ways to Be Happy ~ Author Unknown.
Many, many of the 100 suggestions spoke to me ... but last night, these were the ones that spoke the loudest:
Strive for progress, not perfection.
Remember, the voice telling you that you cannot do something is always lying.
Forgive yourself for any mistake you make, no matter how big or small.
Look at the positive side of negative situation.
Avoid seeking out other people for constant approval, because it make them the master and you the slave.
Remember that all feelings are okay.
Take responsibility for what you think, feel, and do.
Work through your problems step by step and one day at a time.
Don't condemn yourself for your imperfections.
Admit your wrongdoing and forgive yourself for it.
I am going to print off that list of 100 Ways to Be Happy and concentrate on each point. One. Day. At. A. Time.
