Life’s Short. Spend it Happy

life short

Life is too short, and happiness is too rare. So, why waste valuable time or feeling on individuals or things that just don’t matter or worth it? Love yourself enough to set boundaries, and after all, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with life when you are juggling between work, family and your personal needs. However, that’s when you need to take a step back and not let your emotions get the best of you.

‘Happiness’ is more complicated than most might think. Some people strive to be happy, even when they have little and some are unhappy despite having it all. Understanding happiness requires more than just simply feeling happy; it’s the combination of pleasant experiences and the great suffering that teaches you much more about how to grow up into being a happier person.

For many of us, feeling happy and finding life meaningful are both necessary. Although, you may have to choose between a happy life and finding life meaningful because being happy and finding useful life overlap. There are three types of happiness we can experience, pleasure, passion, and purpose. Understanding each and their nature is excessively prominent.
