Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change. – Gretchen Rubin
Whenever you are feeling negative emotions you need to learn that something is wrong, and you must go a different route to find your happiness. Many people feel guilty because they know they did something wrong to a person, this can lay to rest by simply apologizing for your actions. If you find yourself feeling alone, go find someone who you enjoy being around. Just know that when these negative thoughts set in, it’s time to do something about it.
A happy life is one spent in learning, earning, and yearning. – Lillian Gish
This is very simple and true. Life is a never ending learning experience, you must always learn from the past. The more you learn in life, the more you’ll earn in life. What must also stand out here is the ‘Yearning’. You must have that feeling of extreme desire to accomplish something.
All of our technology is completely unnecessary to a happy life. – Tom Hodgkinson
I know social media, and electronics have almost completely taken over most of our lives. It has become a part of everyday living, but do we really need all that for happiness? You might even be happier in life if you just went a couple of weeks without those things. The point is, it’s the simple and free things in life that can make us happy.
When you work too much, you are boring – that is possible. But to have a happy life, if you can do several things in the correct way, that is perfect. – Diego Della Valle
Do not always focus on work, find the things that make you happy. If you take your mind off your job when you get home and do other things correctly, you will find fulfilment. Don’t let your job consume you, do what makes you happy.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. – Buddha
Don’t let the past haunt you and don’t get caught up thinking of the future. The moment you need to focus on is the here and now. What is your current situation and how can you make it better? Although thoughts of the past and future are necessary it’s the present that is most important.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. – Confucius
Don’t over complicate things in life, because like Confucius says ‘It’s simple’. Most of the time big problems have small simple solutions. Never let things seem too big to handle, problems may look big and scary but are often fooling us into thinking they are something their not.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. – George Bernard Shaw
Don’t waste time searching, spend time creating. Life is too short to spend it on trying to find yourself, when you can be who you want by changing yourself. We may see this in ourselves or other people who are always searching, searching for who they want to be or even who they are. If you know who you want to be, then you must start by taking action and doing what it takes to be that person. You have the power and are capable of changing yourself, but it’s you and only you. It’s not can you change; it’s will you change?

May you turn that frown upside down and continue pursuing your goals!
