1) There are always a few reasons to be happy; whether it be that you are alive, someone you love is alive and well, you get to see this beautiful world, and so on. But even when we can’t see them we can still be happy, because being happy is about being grateful and enjoying where you are, what you have, and who you have in the present moment; even if you only have yourself. Be grateful and go from there.
2) We can all constantly be doing something to better ourselves and others. We can do so through reading, learning, and whatever other ways specific to you that help you in what you love. There is so much knowledge our there for you, you just have to be willing and ready to learn.
3) Know what you want, let it be known, and then do the work to get it. Sometimes it’s as easy as simply asking for what you want, other times you have to work for it. Get moving and make your way to whatever it is you’re passionate about and desire. Do what you need to do to get where you want to be.
