Change Your Mood - Build Own Happiness

Sunday, bright day ... hot ... calm ... relax ... and most important ... my weekend.
As usual, i spent much time at room, lie on bed, saw above my roof top which i put glow in the dark-stars and moon stickers, wondered what i would do through day and just let my body, soul & mind relaxed and loafing on bed .
Time passed by til i saw the sun more and more high, signed the noon already came. I saw time from my cell, felt surprised cuz already 12.30 pm, then ... look ... i still didn't do any. It was not what i want for my Sunday ... what for i spent my luxury and expensive day just being like this. For note Saturday, Sunday and luckily extra holiday really luxury and expensive times for me. I sit on bed felt upset why should i spent most waiting day with lazy, loafing and useless. Oh ... i just felt my mood turn into bad .
Then, i push my body to stand, grabbed my towel, tied my hair, went to bath, got papaya bath scrub, wore nice dress, brushed my hair, and sprayed bulgari rose essential perfume. Suddenly i felt my mood turn into good as before ... It was what i want for, ready to kill time by time til my Sunday ended .
I am wondering now, with small things, my mood change easily like i turn my palm up and down. Being happy in life so simple, just enjoy the time, feel good, positive, grateful and treat yourself alike you treat your precious thing (my opinion).
Anyway, i found more how to be happy in life then here they are :
  1. Please and please forget your past : One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory (quote of Rita Mae Brown). There’s nothing you can do about the past, so you’d better let them go and focus your energy on the present .
  2. Take responsibility in life : The secret of Happiness is Freedom, and the secret of Freedom, Courage (quote of Thucydides). You shouldn’t blame someone else when something goes wrong, take the responsibility and you have the power to choose.
  3. Build relationship : Life’s truest happiness is found in friendships we make along the way (quote of no-name). Only through relationships can we love and be loved.
  4. Develop multiple passions : The more passions and desires one has, the more ways one has of being happy (quote of Charlotte-Catherine). Expand yourself to new passions. This way you will create new ways to happiness.
  5. Build character : Character is the basis of happiness and happiness the sanction of character (quote of George Santayana).When you are true to yourself and others, you will be in peace.
  6. Be who you are : The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he/she is (quote of Desiderius Erasmus). You can only be happy if you become who you are. Don’t live other people’s life by trying to meet their expectations.Ouw ... really pity people who live for other expectations. It is useless ... please never do that.
  7. Live your life purpose : The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose (quote of William Cowper). find what the matters to you and build the courage to follow it.
  8. Count your blessings : Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have (quote of no-name). Look at what you have and soon you will have plenty of reasons to be happy. See ... grateful is right option to take right ... so ... start from now ... being grateful ... and everything is enough for you.
  9. Have positive mind : It is not the place, nor the condition, but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable (quote of Roger L’Estrange). Your mind can make or break you, so guard it well. And now look this ... have positive mind is always good choice right.
  10. Work creatively : Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort (quote of Franklin D. Roosevelt). Being creative means found flow which allow you to achieve high productivity and being happy at the same time. But ... this part really hard to do specially for me, as work in accounting field. Come on ... i have learned accounting about 3 and half year in collage then work really hectic year by year with number of money but how i should find 'the flow ?'. So more easy to start liking your job will be better right.
  11. Start with what you have : The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet (quote of James Oppenheim). Happy people don’t need certain job or certain level of income. Instead, they learn to be happy with what they already have. Wow ... it is too great ... i wish my friends can read this, specially for them who always less with their salary ... come on guys ... you have good place to work and why you always feel sorry with your income ... so pity.
  12. Change : They must often change who would be constant in happiness or wisdom (quote of Confucius). Being happy requires you to constantly grow in this way will change you into good and better and me ... i always avoid being best cuz ... i don't like much things.
  13. Use your talents : True happiness involves the full use of one’s power and talents (quote of Douglas Pagels). Using your talents fully will make you even happier because of the satisfaction of doing your best. I very interest in art, cooking and writing. More and more i know, those are my talents. I feel grateful cuz God gives me those talents, so when i need happy time that talents really help me a lot.
  14. Beware of small things : The happiness of most people we know is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things. (quote of Ernest Dimnet). Small leaks can sink your ship of happiness, so beware of them.
  15. Distill your ambitions : Where ambition ends happiness begins (quote of no-name). While wanting to achieve more in your life is good, being obsessed by it is not.
  16. Make others happy : Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself (quote of Ralph Waldo Emerson). The more you help other people and make them happy, the more you will be happy.
  17. Practice compassion : If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion (quote of The Dalai Lama). it requires practice. Start with thinking about the people around you. Look at their needs and find ways to meet them. Even if you don’t do it out of compassion in the beginning, your compassion will grow over time.

Well, you can read and find many ways even steps to make yourself happy, but everything will work depends yourself. No one on this world not want being happy, everyone wants it. I have my own ways to make myself happy and i am sure you must have your own ways being happy. Happiness can't count and no limit, find your happiness and share to the world .
