I am a person who has lived life on both scales. For many years I was pessimistic, depressed and basically laughing on the outside when inside all I wanted to do was be glum. Something in me flipped the script a while ago and I decided to try my hand at being more positive and genuinely alive. The process hasn’t always been easy, in fact, some days, weeks, months (lol), have been harder than others, but I’ve found that by holding onto the core idea of ‘happiness only’, I’ve been able to maintain a cheerful perspective and enjoy life and its challenges.
I’m a huge believer in getting back what we put into the universe. Emphasized by my sad years, as compared to the happier version of my life. Happiness only, doesn’t mean that no matter what happens we’ll be flushed with good feelings. What it means to me is that we’ll be able to take the trials and hardships as they come and turn a positive eye on them. We’ll be able to see the silver linings, even if they’re nothing but a sliver and continue on to positive growth and progress.
