There is no one single way to describe it other than, Love. To love is to be happy. When you love yourself, love life, love everything you’ve been blessed with, you are happy. And that’s all I want for us all.

The Keys To Happiness

#06 – Appreciate and recognize the beauty all around you

Repost from Pinterest

There is something special about everything that happens on this planet. From taking care of horses, to surfing, to writing, to public speaking, to acting, to sculpting, to making a film, to teaching. There is an art to life, an art in how we do things, an art in living our passions. And the amazing thing, is that we all do it differently, in our own ways. We all see, hear, understand, and comprehend things differently. We can come to the same conclusion but in completely different ways.

Appreciate the beauty of life all around you. It’s not hard to recognize. You see it when you go to sports events, debates, writing competitions, when you see someone riding a horse in a big open field, when you see a young girl walking her baby brother on her feet, a person reading in the town park, when you see an older couple smiling lovingly at each other while eating dinner, the laughter and fun you share with those you love and care about, seeing someone randomly help someone else, or whenever you find yourself in a truly happy and beautiful moment. It’s simple, but has a world of meaning.

The beauty of life is literally, physically everywhere. Yet people miss it. They miss it because they get caught up in the mundane, unimportant, small, stupid little things that happen in everyday life and they let those things get to them. It will get to us all for sure, it’s part of life, but we do not have to let those distractions rule us. See the beauty around you. It’s there, you just have to look.

#05 – Be honest

One of the super important keys to truly living free, is to live an honest life. If you can’t be honest with yourself, let alone other people, life is going to be that much harder for you. Being honest is not a hard thing. Just tell the truth, express how you feel. Don’t sugarcoat things. Honesty will pay off whether it’s in your favor or not. Why? Because it provides the chance for you to come clean and clear your slate. If you’ve done something wrong, it won’t erase that, but honesty is the chance to do something right and a step towards making things better.

Honesty is a thing to be greatly appreciated, not many people these days choose to be honest for fear of others knowing the truth of what they’ve done or because that individual can not handle to face the truth. But life, and consequences, are never as hard when you are honest. It’s easier to deal with situations when you are honest because when you are honest, that enables you to have a clear conscious.

It is a blessing to know and have honest people in your life. Cherish them. Honest people are trustworthy people and those people are very important to have in your life. Be trustworthy. Don’t limit yourself because you’re afraid of something. Speak honestly and deal with whatever comes next. Honesty makes life that little bit easier, it clears the air and sets you up for a fresh start. Be honest.

#04 – Trust

You won’t get anywhere in life if you don’t  learn to trust people. Not everyone is trustworthy, so you find people who are; you have to decifer who is and isn’t as you meet people throughout your life. You can’t make it through life on your own. Life is better, and easier, when someone has your back. Trust. You’ll put your trust in people who don’t deserve it and some will betray your trust; that’s life. You’ll mess up and get hurt, but you learn from it and move on.

Trust your instincts and yourself enough to trust those you love and care about.

#03 – Work Hard

The top mathematicians, athletes, scientists, writers, archeologists, etc did not get where they are by doing mediocre work. They put forth the time and effort it takes to be the greatest they can. You can have what you want and need, but you have to put in the work to get it. Some things just kind of fall in your lap and don’t  require much work. Sometimes you’ll be that lucky and not have to do much to aquire what you wish. But 90% of the time, it takes work, hard work, to get what you want and need. It builds character and personality because you are forced to get out of your comfort zone and do what needs to be done to get where you want to be.

There’s this sense of fulfillment you get when you work hard, because you’ve accomplished something that had meaning to you. Do work, reap the rewards.

#02 – Persevere

The greatest thinkers and doers have all had times when they were down. Times when the odds were absolutely and completely against them. But they did not give up. They put the petal to the metal and kept going; no matter how hard it got. They stuck with whatever their pursuit was and made it as far as they could. Those people are the ones we look up to and remember today. Because they pushed on, even in the face of adversity. Persevere. Push. Keep going. Don’t stop til you get what you want and need.

The Keys To Happiness

#01- Explore

Explore yourself and the world. Learn more about everything that is important  to you, yourself especially. Your mind and ability to create what you want is absolutely incredible, tap into finding your inner peace and happiness. It’s  not easy, but when you finally break through, it’s all worthwhile. Explore the city that is around you, wander around your country, go see and experience this beautiful world that you are very much a part of.

Exploration is the expansion of oneself and to truly be free.
