I came across this list via another site and I thought to share it here. It seems we get so easily wrapped up in life that we forget to find happiness in the simplest of things, and we most definitely put our own happiness on the back burner.I'm sure almost everyone can relate to most if not all the items listed.
Here are the top five items on the list:

#1. Start spending time with the right people. – These are the people you enjoy, who love and appreciate you, and who encourage you to improve in healthy and exciting ways. They are the ones who make you feel more alive, and not only embrace who you are now, but also embrace and embody who you want to be, unconditionally.


#2. Start facing your problems head on. – It isn’t your problems that define you, but how you react to them and recover from them. Problems will not disappear unless you take action. Do what you can, when you can, and acknowledge what you’ve done. It’s all about taking baby steps in the right direction, inch by inch. These inches count, they add up to yards and miles in the long run.


#3. Start being honest with yourself about everything. – Be honest about what’s right, as well as what needs to be changed. Be honest about what you want to achieve and who you want to become. Be honest with every aspect of your life, always. Because you are the one person you can forever count on. Search your soul, for the truth, so that you truly know who you are. Once you do, you’ll have a better understanding of where you are now and how you got here, and you’ll be better equipped to identify where you want to go and how to get there. Read The Road Less Traveled.


#4. Start making your own happiness a priority. – Your needs matter. If you don’t value yourself, look out for yourself, and stick up for yourself, you’re sabotaging yourself. Remember, it IS possible to take care of your own needs while simultaneously caring for those around you. And once your needs are met, you will likely be far more capable of helping those who need you most.


#5. Start being yourself, genuinely and proudly. – Trying to be anyone else is a waste of the person you are. Be yourself. Embrace that individual inside you that has ideas, strengths and beauty like no one else. Be the person you know yourself to be – the best version of you – on your terms. Above all, be true to YOU, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.

FULL LIST

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds value in this article, and I have a daily ritual of seeking out quotes, or sayings that I feel feel empower me against the negativity of society and the hardships in life. I hope this thread helps some make a change for the better.
PEACE...

Excellent list! This is just what I needed this morning. It took me over 10 years, but I'm starting to realize the importance of recognizing our own beauty as individuals. No longer will I let others determine my worth. I am a good person with a lot of love to give, and that goes for everybody.

We all shine on!

Thanks OP.

A gorgeous perfect list. We should all share it with others and read it daily until it becomes as much a part of us as breathing is.

I 100% agree. We have all drifted so far away from what truly makes us happy and content and we stupidly try to fill the void with meaningless things.
