10 Ways to Stay Positive and Happy

Hey everyone!

Today, I wanted to talk about happiness and staying positive in life.

Something you all have probably figured out by now ,is that life isn't perfect all the time. 

People often ask me how/why I'm always happy.  The truth?  I don't let all the ups and downs in life ruin the good.   My life isn't perfect.  Nobody's is.  That is what I'm going to talk about in today's post. :)

1. It's the little things.

Take a look around.  When you do, you'll find the beauty in the things you never even saw before.  Spending time with my family, taking pictures, Pinterest, and playing with my dog, are just a few of the things that make me SO happy! 

2. Don't compare yourself...

Guilty.  I'll admit I get discouraged from time to time.  I look at other bloggers and think "Wow!  They're so good.  I'll never be that good."  Then I realize I've only been blogging for 4 1/2 months.  They have been blogging for 4 years.

3. Smile

Smile!  It'll make your day so much brighter.  If you smile at someone else, it might make their day brighter too!
4. Quit criticizing yourself

Everyone has features they don't like about themselves.  God made you just the way He wanted you to be.  Your flaws are just details to others.

5. Be yourself.  Everyone else is taken.

This is so cliche but very true.  At times I have felt like I need to be like somebody I'm not.  I have found that it's better to be you instead of trying to please everybody.

6. Less is more

Instead of thinking of everything you want, think of all the wonderful things you have {great family, true friends, nice clothes, etc.}  Sometimes it's nice to live de-cluttered life. :)

7. Treat yourself

Of course #6 doesn't mean you can't treat yourself every now and then.  Buy something you have been wanting for awhile,  take a bath with bubbles filled to the top, or go get a manicure and pedicure.  It feels good!

8. Laugh a little... or a lot!

Laughter really is the best medicine.  Whenever I'm having a bad day, my mom always tells me something that makes me laugh.  I also, love when it's late at night and everything is hilarious! :)
9. Get organized 

I struggle with this one.  I organize my closet perfectly and a month later it's a nightmare.  When I am organized, it is a wonderful feeling!  

10. Be a Go Getter!

If you want it bad enough you'll just do it!  It's never easy but in the end your hard work will pay off. ;)

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
