Advice from a 20 something dreamer - Day 3 of Blogtember

Wow. That sounds like a good source of advice, doesn't it.

I'm hardly one to tell others how to live, but this is something I tell myself every day.


Happiness is a choice - make it.


Some days it's really hard. And it is way easier to be sad, or shitty, or sulky or tired of frustrated. But once you know you can change those thoughts, it gets easier. It's just stubbornness holding me back then :P




This is my post for Day 3 of the Blogtember challenge.
"Thursday, September 5: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered."

  1. This is very good advice! I just need a way to remember it when I'm in one of those I just want to be negative moods. ;)

    1. Thanks, I have it written in my office, and if I feel myself getting negative I look at it and try and make it happen. Sometimes its just easier to be shitty haha.

  2. You are exactly right that you get to choose your own attitude each day, might as well choose a good one!!

    I think you can definitely be in control of your own mood/attitude.
    A lot of the time we don't think to choose happiness.
    It's something I'm choosing more often. :)
    Good advice!

  5. I too love it! I have had endless conversations about this topic, about how we have a choice. We have a say. We can get mad at the driver who cut us off or just be happy that he didn't kill us. It's why I always struggle when people say, "so and so hurt my feelings." They didn't. We have a choice on whether our feelings are hurt and how we respond. I think we often don't give ourselves enough credit for how much say and control we have in our emotions.

  8. Very good advice! I struggle with choosing to be happy when I am at work; not letting other people's crankiness to define my day.

    Have a happy day!

    1. It can be tough at work, you have so many other people to deal with, and then feedback. And it can be tough staying positive when you are under the pump or busy. I have it posted on my screen so I can always think about it!
      Thanks so much for your comment!

  10. My parents always told me "It is what you make it" about everything in life. So true!

    1. Def true - your parents are pretty on to it! I think our parents generation are much better at it than us, because in most situations, there was less artificial things to make you happy when they were growing up. We have so many elevated expectations of how life should be because of media.
      Thanks so much for your comment, you have given me something to think on!

  14. Hey Sarah, I like this, and you know me quite well. So this might be a little "normal" random going on a tangent thought but, there's one dwarf (Snow White) for every day of the week, and they're mostly named after moods/attitudes. OK maybe not Doc though, but if you had to choose which dwarf to be you could still choose Doc,and be happy. Although I don't think we set out to be dopey, but that happens then we get a little bashful or grumpy while in other cases it might result in happy as its just too silly. Without looking after ourselves can get sneezey or sleepy and that can lead to grumpy. Although these seem like a mix bag of moods with one positive one in the bunch, they all work as a team and sing hi-ho-hi-ho its off to work we go. Now if these dwarves were like Pokemon I'd picture it as "HAPPY I CHOSE YOU!" and that image just makes me smile. What would that merry fella do? Who knows, but the more you use Pokemon in battle the more skilled/higher level/powerful they become. So why not focus on the positive one? Be like "Yeah my Happy is level 89", then just cruising around then 'nek minnit' oh no wild Grumpy level 35 appeared! Grumpy's move had no effect. Happy's move was super effective! Enemy Grumpy was defeated. Happy for the win. I guess you could say the more you use it the stronger you become and easier it is for happiness to overcome challenges. I hope that made you giggle some ~ Nay.
