Are you Happy?

If you aren’t happy, then I suggest you change something in your life right now.  Life is way too short to be unhappy.  This life, you’re only going to live once.


There are many different things in life that either make us happy or sad.  We have control over most of these things whether you want to believe it or not.  If you have a job that makes you miserable, it is your decision to either stay or leave and find another job.  If you have a grandchild that makes you very happy, it’s your decision and actions that create more time spent with them.


People often go through a good part of their life in a unhappy relationship.  They usually have several excuses like doing it for the kids.  Or they have no where to go.  These are excuses they may even believe.  Telling themselves it so many times it eventually comes true to them.  When in reality they have many options.  Life is too short to sacrifice it thinking you are making your child happy.  To be honest the child may not be very happy always being around two people who hate each other.  You may be harming the child.

What about the excuse they have nowhere else to go?  That has to be one of the oldest and over used excuses in the history of man kind.  Unless you have a gun pointed to your head no one is stopping you from leaving.  If you have grown to depend solely on the other person financial wise, then it’s time to grow up and go make your own way.  It isn’t impossible and you won’t know how it feels until you take the plunge.

Don’t worry, be HappyBe Happy

Here’s a little song to help you thru your day.
