BE YOURSELF WARRIOR 

Happiness is a tricky subject. We all want it, and we never feel we have enough of it. So many people feel happiness is something that magically comes into their life from time to time. If you want to be happy, or happier, you have to work at it.

Every now and then we do get lucky, and something comes into our life that bring us joy. We can’t and shouldn’t count on chance to be happy. There are lots of little things we can all do in order to make us happier. It’s important to understand that we can’t look to outside forces or other people for a blissful experience. There is only so much we can do to influence others. Instead, get to know and understand your personality type. From there you can lay out a plan to get yourself in the emotional place you want to be.
