5 Simple Rules For Happiness (the before the beach video - taking time to test out the rules now!))

I saw this philosophy on a friend's wall yesterday and really paused to read it. It struck a chord with me. I think they are the simple rules for happiness. What is happiness? I believe it is much more than self acceptance and harmony in one's life. Happiness is also striving to be better in any way you can. The way to achieve that is to really get to know oneself first, so you can see clearly what needs to be improved.

  

I have never liked the term "getting to know oneself" because it seems so cliche, but it really is imperative. I think people can go through life not realizing what they really value. I've been learning about myself for the past 4 years, or so. I know I have yet a long journey to traverse, but at least I feel that I'm on the right path. I've even started dancing again:) It's never too late!

 

I've been told that it's smart to make one's list of goals short and simple. Here, I believe, are 5 rules to a happier life.

 

I'm re-charging my Ipod and will be enjoying physical exercise shortly hahaha! (HEY - that's a biggie - I've never enjoyed it before and I am really digging it now!)

 

Have a great OMG it's Thursday? Wow this summer has zipped by.
