"Life isn't fair". If I had a penny for every time I've heard that quote, I'd have more money than anyone could imagine. I cannot stand that quote. It seems to be true that things don't always go the way we think they should, but I think that's the point. Life wouldn't be very exciting if it did. In my opinion, I don't think it is about what life gives us: what we deserve after hard work, what we want after praying every single night for it since we were 5, how many friends we have, etc. I think it's about what we get out of contributing to what is around us. So if you think life isn't fair, why don't you try to make it so? Sitting here making excuses with that quotes is not going to help anything. What will is making a difference. I'm not asking for you to fix every world wide situation, but what about helping others around you. Listen to an elderly person. Just having someone to talk to brightens their day more than you could imagine. And after their long life, I think it's only fair to have someone to keep them company.
Smile & laugh. If anyone has a loud crazy laugh it's me, so don't worry about that, laugh anyways. There's nothing wrong with being happy. Laugh and smile loud and proud. Be positive. Everyone is entitled to their bad days, but as a whole, life is so much more rewarding when you only focus on what is good. Train your brain to think that way. It will change the way you see your world.
Be kind to others. There's a reason people have been telling you this your whole life. Listen to it. There will always be someone who will be the meanest, most negative Nelly in your life. Treat them the same way you treat the nice people in your life. Spreading negativity really only hurts you in the long run. You never know what could be going on in their lives. Don't add to their unhappiness, but try to brighten their day. But at the same time, don't let them walk all over you. That will make you unhappy.
Just had this reflection about how trying to do all of that has affected my life in such a positive way, so I thought it may help yours(:
