Youthfulness

You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind. – Joyce Meyer

You can see more at this link.

Youth is not about the age you are in.

Youth is about what you act and react.

Don’t take life seriously.

Life is too short to be unhappy.

It’s all about your beliefs. What is your priority in life?

Don’t listen to people when they say, act your age.

Instead, live to the fullest.

Growing up doesn’t mean we have to throw away our child-side of ours.

Grow old gracefully.

And more importantly, grow old happily.

Happiness and fun go together.

If you want an example, follow me on Instagram. Plenty of examples in my #100HappyDays journey. Happiness doesn’t have to be made up of grand things. Usually it is the little things that make you happy.

What do you do today to be happy?

Happiness

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness. – Charles Spurgeon

If you have been following me on Instagram, you would know that I am currently on a challenge – #100HappyDaysChallenge, or in short just #100HappyDays.

I have already passed the halfway mark.

It isn’t easy, there are constant challenges daily. It’s not easy to be happy daily.

But it is not impossible either. Happiness is a state of mind, to find something to cherish. To find something to be grateful for.

Have you been doing this challenge? Go on, give it a try. And see how your life would change.

100 HAPPY DAYS R3 – WEEKS 14 &15 & Review

Finale for Round 3.

 

Day 91 : August 30, 2015 : Another quiet Sunday to spend time on readings.

Day 92 : August 31, 2015 : Happy Birthday, Malaysia!

Day 93 : September 1, 2015 : Took a day off today. To run some errands and have tea at Orchard. It was surreal experience to be there on a working day.

Day 94 : September 2, 2015 : Went for our weekly swimming session. And was it me or do I feel like I could have swum further today? Guess I am improving on my swimming, with consistent practice.

Day 95 : September 3, 2015 : It’s all about the general election. Everywhere I go, there are rallies and conversations regarding which party is better. It is interesting listening to their arguments, both the politicians and the public.

Day 96 : September 4, 2015 : Had dinner with friend at Bugis Junction. It has been a long time since I had dinner there. The food is great!

Day 97 : September 5, 2015 : Went to Art Science Museum for a tour on Singapore history. So many things to know and to reflect upon.

Day 98 : September 6, 2015 : Attended a talk on diving. That looks interesting. That would be my next sport, once I have mastered my swimming.

Day 99 : September 7, 2015 : Went to watch the movie Inside Out. My friends all gave raving reviews on it. And I guessed, why not? Fabulous movie.

Day 100 : September 8, 2015 : To celebrate the finale of the 100 Happy Days? Had a sumptuous lunch. The more sinful, the better. LOL.

 

 

What do I learn here?

Happiness is a state of mind. So is sadness.

Happiness is a choice. So is sadness.

We can find something to be happy about, in every day, in every situation. Regardless how improbable it seems.

The best way to be happy? To be grateful. To be contented with what you have.

Haven’t been really updating this blog for a long time. And yet, each day passes by. We shouldn’t forget that in each day, there is happiness to be found, regardless how trivial it is.
