Tip 28: Find Happiness in the Imperfect

24 Feb 2016 6:03 PM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

Life is not perfect. No matter how hard we try, the to-do list is constantly being updated. People keep making mistakes and our ideal outcomes often miss the mark. It can be hard to be truly happy when things don’t go our way. By always thinking about what we want or don’t want, we can see our lives as imperfect and incomplete.
Instead, look for happiness in the imperfect. Sure, we might really want a Caribbean cruise and we surely don’t want the weight that always seems to be saddling our waists – but ask yourself:

  • What really makes me happier? 
  • What are some of the things I am happy about right now?
  • Am I willing to reframe a negative opinion and look for positive opportunity?
  • Do I readily share my happiness with others?

Life is not perfect, but it's also too short to not find happiness in the our imperfect world.
