|To be happy, you don't have to do anything new.|
You just have to remember how to believe again...
Believe everything good is possible.
Believe in your dreams.
Believe in people.
Believe in love.
But most of all...Believe in yourself.
Have you ever noticed that people who believe they are unlucky always have misfortune? Or people who believe they are lucky always seem to have good luck? Or people who believe they always attract "the crazy ones," always seem to attract them, while those who have fantastic relationships will tell you that love is very real and very amazing?
You have to believe in something before you'll be able to experience it. Skepticism of great things drives away great things. Welcoming great things encourages more.
Believe in yourself and in great things, and you will start to see them in your life. If something or someone bad comes along, let it go...don't let it change your beliefs. We all come across great things and great people, and not-so-great things and not-so-great people. The ones we choose to focus on and the ones we choose to keep around will bring more of the same.
Happy people tend to spend a lot of time with other happy people. Shady folks have some pretty shady friends. If you try to change anyone or try to "make them" into better people, you'll find it's just not possible. It doesn't fit with their belief system, so it cannot work long term.
When you believe in great things, and bad things come your way, it shouldn't convince you that those great things aren't true. It should just let you know that they are possible, just not at that time, or with that person, or in that circumstance.
Stay true to yourself, and stay true to your positive beliefs, and in time, all great things will be yours.
