A Recipe For Happiness in Life


Sometimes life can get the best of us. Although it’s the New Year and many people rejoice in the phrase ‘New Year New Me’, this doesn’t necessarily mean that life won’t bring obstacles. Life will still bring drama, chaos, and wreak havoc, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy in the midst of all the craziness.  True happiness is a choice!

A few years back while shopping for my college apartment, I stumbled across a plaque that read 9 recipes for happiness.

The ingredients follow as:

1 bag of smiles

2 cups of sharing

2lbs of positivity

1/2 cup of good humor

1 cup of self-esteem

2 spoonfuls of simplicity

1 dash of goodwill

4 drops of easy-going

and 1 packet of life loving

When life’s uncertainties  rise, I refer to the plaque I bought 3 years ago to get me through the ups and downs. Being positive and having an optimistic mindset will carry you far in a world full of negativity. There are over 6 billion people in the world, be one out of those 6 billion to keep the faith and be happy!
