Bit of Happy #38: Find Your Niche

4 Nov

“Do what makes you happy,
Be with who makes you smile,
Laugh as much as you breathe,
And love as long as you live.”

This quote, in my mind, has some of the best advice someone can give. It’s short, simple and to the point. If you made a checklist of each of these things, I don’t know how you could check all of them and find yourself unhappy in the end.

Don’t waste your time doing things that you don’t feel passionate about. Don’t know what your passionate about? Go out there and find it! Try something new. You can’t sit here and tell me that there’s not one thing in the world your passionate about. That’s just impossible. And once you find it, find a way to live it in every day you spent on this Earth. I promise you’ll find yourself more happy and definitely more fulfilled.

Don’t waste your time with people who don’t love and support you through thick and thin. Be with who makes you smile – laughing is okay too. 😉 But really, the people who you surround yourself with can really effect your happiness. Even in times of hardship, just being in the same room as positive people who truly care about you can lift your spirits. Trust me, it’s not worth being with someone who doesn’t love you for exactly who you are.

Even though the next one is quite impossible, still live by it! It’s fun and it makes me smile just reading it – “laugh as much as you breathe.” Go ahead. Have a laugh. And laugh a lot. Or at least, laugh as much as you can! There’s nothing better than a laugh that has tears rolling down your cheeks, your belly hurting and you wondering if you’ll ever be able to take a breath. Now that I think about it, that kind of sounds awful. But we all know different!

And the last, and probably most important one, is love. Give love to all you meet, and give more than you receive. This has me thinking of the song by the Black Eyed Peas, ‘Where Is The Love?’ Oldie, I know. For some reason it popped in my head. But everyone could use a little love – whether its as simple as a kind gesture or as deep as falling for your soulmate. Hiding or shying away from it is not the answer. It’s not love that hurts, it’s the people that attempt to love that do. Love is pure, honest and patient, and if you give and receive it every day of your life, consider yourself pretty lucky.

I’m telling ya’ – world’s best advice in that quote. Instead of taking it for granted, embrace it. Try it out. Dress yourself in it every day. Find your happy!
