This is the end of my first month doing my own happiness project. At the beginning of the month I explained how I wanted to spend time focusing on my identity by embracing who I am and loving myself unconditionally. I'd like to end the month by working on letting go of expectations and embracing the fact that I can't continue to expect my life to be perfect, because it will never live up to that standard.
I found the quote above that says "What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be." This quote reminds me that most of the time I have a picture in my head of how my life it supposed to look, and if reality doesn't match up to that picture I tend to feel disappointed and sad. What I'd like to focus on is appreciating what I do have instead of what I don't have. Hopefully this new way of thinking will help me to be happier with everyday life.
What are some things that you can change in your thinking that would make you happier?
