Understand this:

You can sound confident and have anxiety.
You can look healthy but feel like shit.
You can look happy and be miserable inside.
You can be good looking and feel ugly.

So be kind.
Because every person is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Stephen Lang looks amazing for his age, yoga can be an amazing addition. I am not at all a yoga person. My workout includes weights & running, that’s all. And it’s true: GOAL OF FITNESS IS QUALITY OF LIFE.)

Stop worrying about other people understanding you.
Get in touch with yourself instead.
Focus on what makes you happy, what makes your soul feel at peace.
You are your biggest commitment.
So start loving your flaws, your awkwardness, your weirdness, your intensity, your vulnerability, your everything.

Life becomes so much more fulfilling when you are just simply yourself.
The world keeps spinning whether people understand you or not.
So why not make this next trip around the sun about you!
BE YOU.

DON’T COMPARE your actual self to a hypothetical self.
Don’t drown in a sea of ‘what if’s.
Don’t clutter your mind by imagining other versions of you, in parallel universes, where you made different decisions.
The internet age encourages choice and comparison, but don’t do this to yourself. Theodore Roosevelt said; Comparison is the thief of joy.
You are The you.
Past is the past.

The only way to make a better life is from inside the present.
To focus on regret does nothing but turn that very present into another thing you will wish you did differently.
Accept your own reality.
Be human enough to make mistakes.
Be human enough not to dread the future.
Be human enough to be, well, enough.
Accepting where you are in life makes it so much easier to be happy for other people without feeling terrible about yourself.

You can be high-functioning,
and still be depressed.
You can appear confident,
and still suffer from anxiety.
You can laugh and seem happy,
and still be depressed.
You can make progress in your healing,
and still feel the weight of the trauma.
You can have it all together,
and still feel empty inside.

Be gentle with yourself and others.
Everyone is going through something.

There’s nothing more beautiful than a kind empathetic heart which can feel the same for others as much as for yourself.

Here’s my cheat sheet to a happy happening life.

Write when you are overthinking.
Move when you are anxious.
Read something new when you are tired.
Walk when you are confused.
Workout when you are sad.

So you want to be happy?
Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day.
If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected.
Stop complaining about how alone you are when you’re surrounded by people who actually care about you.
Forget all the drama and let go of all the grudges you’ve been holding.
Stop wasting time lingering over all that you could have, should have and would have done.
Stop spending your days thinking of how much better you could do; stop longing for something that has been and always will be out of your reach.
Just live the days as they come.
Wake up every morning and smile at the wonderful day that awaits you.
Take a risk for once.
Let yourself be happy, because you deserve it.

My only GOAL in life right now is to be HAPPY.
Genuinely, intensely and consistently happy, regardless of what that looks like to others.

We all have bad days, but the darkness always brings light.
You have the choice and the power to emerge from whatever darkness or hardship might be consuming you.
Use your inner light to shine and light up the world.
Sometimes it can be as simple as thinking happy thoughts or smiling when you don’t want to.

Light up the world with your smile even if you’re feeling down.

Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds!
Shine.
-BUDDHA.
