Live Happier with Positive Thoughts
Talking about happiness, we found that researches had shown many findings. Either you agree or not, but happiness is something that everyone wants to feel. It doesn’t matter if you are a child or an adult, male or female, poor or rich, nobody in this world want to live without happiness. Unfortunately, it is difficult to define precisely what happiness is. We just want to be happy, as simple as a child enjoy an ice cream or candy or any snacks he/ she likes.
Today we are not going to talk about happiness scientifically. We are about to learn from happy people on how they got their happiness, maintain, and live happier day by day. Who are those people? Don’t be surprised, we may not realize that they live around us. It can be someone next your house or someone in front of your working desk. Let’s talk about one of them.
1. State of gratitude
Tina, 35 years old, a mother of two little girls, has described about the meaning of happiness as a state of gratitude to God for giving her two kids while many people are still dreaming of having one. It sounds simple, but actually being happy was a struggle for her. Why? One of Tina’s daughters was diagnosed as a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges.
There are signs and symptoms shown by children with ASD, among of those symptoms are have trouble relating to others or not have an interest in other people at all, avoid eye contact and want to be alone, have trouble understanding other people’s feelings or talking about their own feelings, repeat actions over and over again, and have trouble adapting when a routine change.
2. Self Realization
The doctor told her about this two years ago when Rina (her autistic daughter) was 3 years old. Hearing that news for sure was a nightmare for her or for any other parents in the world. She got depressed for couple of months and had shown herself as a temperamental mom until one day she realized that she was wrong. As a mom, she shouldn’t act like that, she decided to live her life differently and to find her happiness as well.
3. Be Practical
Do you know what makes Tina changed and quit from her depression? It was just a voice from her daughter, Rina, calling her for the very first time when she had just arrived at home after work. Without seeing her mom, Rina said, “Mama, Mama”, a moment after Tina had arrived. It was a calling that made her suddenly cried and it was the moment she felt and she thought that God blesses her (and her family). Tina felt that it was the sign sent by God, contained a message, that there’s still a hope for her daughter.
4. Believe in yourself
It didn’t need a long time for her to decide that she must stay at home and take care of her daughter, Rina, by herself, rather than leave her with a housemaid. Two weeks after she got an insight after her daughter’s calling, she resigned from her job and had started to be a full time mommy. She pushed aside her dream to reach the highest position at her office, then she started to focus on her children (especially Rina), reading articles about autistic, accompany her to the therapist, and keeping alive her spirit and positive thoughts she owns.
It was not easy to face it all but she felt peacefulness and happiness when she believes on what she’s been doing. She believes that there’s something good behind Rina’s autism, there’s something that will make her life brighter.
5. Be positive
Be positive in all the way either in her thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors, were all that she needed to do.She then wrote a book about her story. Nothing she expected but to share this spirit and happiness to other parents with the same problem, to motivate them all through her thoughts and words, to inspired people that everyone deserves to be happy because happiness is about having positive minds, positive attitudes, and positive behaviors.
6. Attitude matters
Tina is only one of the people who has to be strong to deal with this kind of problems. There are many people in the world whom we think having affliction heavier than Tina’s but actually they live happier than us. Do you know the reason? Yes, it because they have built positive thoughts, have shown positive attitudes as well as positive behaviors. As the famous line says that we are what we think, then if we think we are happy, we will be happy. It doesn’t mean that you are not allowed to feel sad or think bad of something.
It means that you have to utilize all your potential, energy, and everything you have got, in positive ways. You may say that talking is easy. You don’t realize by saying so, you loose your positive energy and even worse you created a wall that blocking you up and setting you apart from your goals.
7. Set Your Path
We have learnt from Tina and maybe you have learnt from other people too. Are we going to stop here? No,do not stop here. We can also inspired people in some other ways. Tina have done it through her book, we can do similar things with whatever we have. As long as we live, we will always surrounded by problems, worries, sorrows as well as we will always surrounded by happiness, peacefulness, and gratefulness. Hence, instead of living with problems, worries, and sorrows, why don’t you choose happiness, peacefulness, and gratefulness to filled up your life?
8. Justify Your Life
So, if you feel you are the most unlucky guy because of this and because of that, throw all those feelings out of your self. If you think you are the most pathetic guy in the world due to any reasons, throw all those thoughts away from your self. As Tina emphasize on her book, for whatever the reasons, you, whoever you are, deserve to be happy and have a happier life. Don’t let negative thoughts, negative feelings, negative attitudes, and negative behaviours take charge of your mind, your body, and your soul. There’s always a way for you to find your happiness, you decide!
