1Life’s Too Short

There is no doubt that life is too short to be anything but happy. Why go through life miserable when you can simply put a smile on and appreciate all the good things you have? Surround yourself with good friends to make sure you always have a smile on!

2A Good Day

Happiness is a choice. It’s a decision. And, the best one you can make every single day. You should wake up every morning choosing to be happy. Because, why wouldn’t you want to spend your day with a smile on?

4The Little Things

You don’t need to have drive the fanciest car or have the nicest dresses in order to be happy. Happiness comes from little things. A hot cup of coffee in the morning or reading a book on your commute to work should be things we are grateful for every day. It makes life a whole lot more enjoyable.


Being happy is so easy to accomplish. And, it’s definitely the greatest form of success. If you are happy, no one can take that away from you. So, embrace your smile and continue on your happy journey.

Things happen all the time that ruin our perfect day; our coffee spills, or we forget our keys at home, or we lose our phone, but no matter what happens you can always keep your happiness. You just have to look at things from a new perspective and brush off the annoyances. It may seem hard in the moment, but practice makes perfect.

7Make Your Soul Happy

It’s so important to practice self-care. Self-care makes your soul happy and it creates an overall sense of well-being.

People who are happy glow differently. They exhume an essence of beauty that is unmatched. So, ditch the highlight at Sephora and pick up a smile instead. I bet you will get even more compliments! Plus, you will definitely save some money.

9Be A Light

It’s important to be your own light in the dark. Or, in other words, be the person who picks you up when you’re down. No one else can do it as good as you. And, finding that inner power will strengthen you and allow you to get through anything! Also, people will be totally jealous of your coping skills. They are not the easiest to learn, but once you have them, you have them for life!

10Your Focus

When things aren’t looking so great, start looking at them with a new perspective. Be grateful for everything you do have. And, forget the things you don’t have. There is no use pining over things that are not present in our lives. And, just because Becky got a new pair of Louboutins, doesn’t need you need them to make you smile.

If everything is going down the drain and your life feels like it’s falling apart- smile! Changing your attitude on situations is guaranteed to get you through the hardest times. And, when you practice that skill throughout your life you will get better at it. And, people will definitely envy your ability to get through tough situations!

12A Grump

No one wants to hang out with a grump. And, I am sure when you’re a grump you feel it and don’t want to be around you either. So, change your attitude about life and start living happy! You don’t want to go through life miserable. And, the people around you don’t want to deal with it either!

13Choose Happy

Why choose sad when you could choose happy? Happy is the best way to be. And, people will envy you for it.

So, forget the new iPhone or tickets to Coachella and focus on all the little things you have RIGHT now. I promise you, that practicing gratitude every single day will change your world!

14Who Cares

It doesn’t matter what makes you happy in life, as long as you are happy! And, if other people disapprove of your actions, then ignore it. All that matters is that you are happy living the life you’re living. Well…as long as it’s legal!

15Be You

Being yourself is one of the easiest ways to live a happy life. No one wants to hide their true selves from the world. And, feeling ashamed of the person that you are will only break your own heart. So, embrace your weird self and show the world who you really are!

16A Grateful Heart

Every day you should count your blessings. Whether it be family, friends, or a new class you’re taking, feel grateful for these little things. These things are all apart of your life’s journey. And, life is something that should never be taken for granted.

17Steal Your Joy

You should never let anyone have control over your happiness. If someone doesn’t approve of what you are doing, that’s on them and it should not affect your mood at all. Happiness comes from within. So, ignore the haters and keep doing you.

18How To Be Happy

If you start your day in a good mood, it will continue throughout the day. That positive energy you are giving yourself in the morning will help you during the day when some obstacles may pop up.

19Happiness Blooms

Happiness does not come from money. It does not come from career success. And, it does not come from other people. Happiness is something that comes from inside. And, when you let it bloom, I guarantee it will never stop growing.

20Everything You Need

Life itself is happiness. You don’t need any external forces to make you happy. So, make a list of all the things you already have that make you happy. Maybe it’s the color of your hair or the way you laugh or how your skin feels under the sun’s warmth, whatever it is, embrace it and be thankful for it!

21Worth It

When it comes to jobs, specifically, sometimes they pay well but just don’t make you happy. So, you have to think- is it worth it? Certainly not. Happiness is everything. Why good will money be if you are miserable all the time? Money doesn’t buy happiness. So, find your passion and go for it. Life is too short.

22Good For My Health

If you are happy, you are automatically healthier. It’s proven that depression can cause a variety of ailments including heart disease and physical soreness. When you are happy, your body is happy too. So, choose happy!

23Who Makes You Happy

You shouldn’t have to try to impress anyone. You should be in company that makes you happy and gives you the good energy you need to make yourself happy! Worrying about impressing others is not worth it. Be true to you.

24Your Own Company

You have to be happy with yourself before you can make someone else happy. This is especially true in relationships. So, before you jump the gun with Ted, Chad, or Michael make sure you are truly happy with who you are. Then, you may be able to make your partner happy when they are feeling low.

25Never Goes Out Of Style

Being happy is an ultimate classic. So, find out what it takes for you to find your happiness. Is it a Netflix binge-watching session on a Friday night? A date with the girls? Or, maybe even just a homemade face mask. Whatever it is, make sure you incorporate it into your schedule so you can always be happy and stylish.

26Every Sixty Seconds

It’s scary when you sit and think about all the time you have wasted being sad. And, for what? Nothing. Being sad is a total waste of time. Obviously, sometimes it is unavoidable, but the less time wasted being sad the more time you can be happy.

27Be A Fruit Loop

A wonderful way to be happy is to be yourself. That means being different. You don’t want to be like everyone else, so embrace the fact that you are uniquely you!

28Never Too Late

Just because you have been going through a little slump, doesn’t mean you can’t turn it all around! It’s never too late to be happy and begin enjoying life!

29Be The Sunshine

When things seem dark and gray, learn to become your own sunshine. There is no better skill than learning to pick yourself up when you are feeling low and seeing the positives in your life!

30See The Good

There is good in every situation, you just have to look for it. It may not be obvious all the time, but with a little bit of digging, you will surely find it.
