Three Tiny Steps to Happiness
Are you unhappy with your life? Do you feel like you’ll never be happy again? There are some things you can do to bring yourself back to a happy place in your life, but before we can cover those steps, there are some important questions you need to ask yourself.
3 Big Questions
Why are you unhappy?
First, you need to get real with yourself and pinpoint the root of your unhappiness. Is it certain people in your life? A bad job situation? A soured relationship? Whatever it is causing you so much discontentment, you need to name it. Until you do so, you will never be able to truly embrace happiness again.
What are you going to do about it?
Now that you are getting honest with yourself and naming what is the cause of this unhappiness, what are you going to do about it? You cannot recognize the source of a problem then leave it there. Something must be done to change it.
Are you ready to change?
Finally, you should ask yourself if you are truly ready to change. Some people enjoy staying unhappy because it’s what they know best. Others stay stuck in this negative energy because they don’t know how to turn it around. Are you seriously ready to stop being so unhappy?

3 Tiny Steps
Embracing happiness is not difficult, but it requires some work. So if you are ready, here are three tiny, but important steps you can take, starting now.
Step 1: Stay away from negative people. Negative people breed negative energy. The longer you are around these kinds of people, eventually that same attitude will rub off on you, stealing your joy and happiness.
Step 2: Learn to say no. No is such a small word, but is so hard for many people to say. If you mean no, then say no.
Step 3: Choose to be happy. Rather than a predicated situation, happiness is actually a state of mind. You have the power to choose to be happy. Release the turmoil, sadness, and anger and simply make up your mind that you will be happy, despite it all.
