Find Happy

by Kris Pitcher

You might just be your own worst enemy when it comes to finding happiness. If you've been waiting for it to happen to you...you could wait a long time.

One important factor in finding happiness is shifting your focus. It's time to stop thinking about yourself. Shifting the focus from yours truly to others in your life helps find perspective, and happiness.

If happy people just make you mad, you're focusing on the negative. Happy people focus on the positive, their cup is half full. Finding that perspective takes practice and effort. It's up to you to see the good in life.

Sometimes we're unhappy because we're just plain bored. If you are stuck in a rut it's time to try something new. Nurturing newness can give you renewed energy. Even as little as shifting your schedule or the way you do things can be new enough to help you unleash that boredom.

Happiness doesn't happen to you, you create it. It's in the way you choose to focus on the world, and it's in how you decide to see it. Is you're cup half full?

Get out of your rut and try something new, spark some energy in your life and see if it doesn't just make you a little bit happy. Stop waiting for something you have the power to do yourself. Go find happy!
