Why 'Choose To Be Happy?' - 8 Reasons Why!!! 1. Every new day is another chance to change your life - If you have dreamed of some things that you would like to have in your life, today is a great opportunity to do even some small things that will take you to the path that will take you to your dreams. 2. This day is an opportunity to be better than yesterday - If you pursuit every day to be better than yesterday, your self esteem and happiness will increase. Don’t try to be perfect, just focus on being a little bit better person in every way, every day, and you will achieve great things and happiness in the long run. 3. You can be who you want to be right now - It doesn’t matter what your situation looks like, you can start being who you want to be today, no matter how your life is at the moment. You don’t have to sell your house to be adventurous or have more money to share it more. Just ask yourself: “How can I be that person I want to be in this moment?” 4. The glass is both half-empty and half-full - Your attitude and thoughts define your reality, so you can choose how you see your life starting today. Finding compassion even for the worst in human behavior, and working to inspire the best will make you happy, too. 5. Happiness comes from your own actions - You can do anything you want today to make your life better if you just decide to do so. You can spread joy around you, even if you don’t have everything you want. Giving joy to other people will make your day happier, too. 6. You have great friends - You have good friends in your life that you can share your inner feelings with. If you don’t have that many close friends, today is a great opportunity to make new friends. 7. You can learn a new thing today - Learning new skills is very rewarding and helps us to proceed in life. It is possible to learn something new every day, so start thinking what you would like to learn today and just find ways to learn it. Now when we have the Internet, it is so easy to learn anything by just asking Google. 8. The summer is coming soon - If the summer isn’t coming in the next months where you live right now, it will always come in one year anyway. Remember the feeling of warm sun on your skin, the smell of coconut sunscreen, not having to wear a coat even at night, sunglasses, freckles, cold beer, the beach, tan lines, the smell of freshly cut grass and the faces of happy people? Thinking about summer and the good times you will have then makes you feel good. Interaction with Guest Our guest may interact with us whenever necessary.
