Being Happy in a Difficult Time

Positivity is key. Lately it seems like we are all getting smacked around and weighed down with one bad thing after another, but it does not do any good to dwell on that. Yes, you should take action wherever you can and fight for justice and a better world, but there are also times where you need to let go. No one can sit in negativity forever.

It will get better. It may not be perfect, but whatever hardship you are dealing with will eventually pass. There are still so many things to be happy about. Life still has so many wonderful opportunities to take advantage of. There will always be a time to indulge in the things you enjoy. Sometimes people need to be reminded of that.

If your family member is stressed out or feeling overwhelmed, do something nice for them. Maybe that means making their favorite food, maybe it’s watching a movie, or maybe it’s playing a game. That stranger walking by who looks tense might welcome a smile or a friendly hello or a genuine compliment. Maybe someone you know needs a good-old-fashioned dose of laughter.

Happiness is one of the greatest things about living. It comes from positivity, so don’t forget to take a break from worrying every once in a while and think about the good things. Be happy.
