Expect three awesome things to happen to you everyday.
Seriously. I live by this. These awesome things don’t have to be big, like winning the lottery or marriage, at that rate you’d never be happy. It can be as simple as a piece of chocolate, a peaceful moment shared, a bowl of ice cream or a compliment from a complete stranger. It’s my way of reminding myself to be happy, to relish in small things, to enjoy life, and literally count my blessings. If more than three things happen awesome. But on the worst of days, it helps by forcing you to find three good things that have happened, to look on the bright side. Also, it’s not cheating to make three things happen. Making your favorite dessert, buying a piece of chocolate to eat or stopping by to see someone you missed count. And it’s okay to make other people do something to make your day awesome, like sharing that wonderful snack they brought. All that counts is that you can find three things that made your day. Trust me it works, and you begin to notice the small mundane things that make you happy.
Also-give a complete stranger a compliment everyday. If you can’t find a stranger, a friend, co-worker, or someone else you know works too. That’s my advice to you.
