I noticed that meditating daily helps this goal as well. I do feel more and more that if I’m a little sad or down, I tend to just accept it and go on, and by doing that (just letting it be instead of giving in to the feelings and being dragged around in them) it’s easier to stay not-unhappy. And I actively try to do things because I want to enjoy my life. It’s too short to do things I don’t enjoy, it’s as simple as that.

Read about it on aswedishlime ’s page… sounds interesting. Must explore this a bit more!
“A “happiness project” is an approach to changing your life. First is the preparation stage, when you identify what brings you joy, satisfaction, and engagement, and also what brings you guilt, anger, boredom, and remorse. Second is the making of resolutions, when you identify the concrete actions that will boost your happiness. Then comes the interesting part: keeping your resolutions.”
I realized today that lately, I have actually been enjoying every single day. Life is beautiful, and I feel I’m really living it instead of just letting it happen. This feels so good, and I feel so strong! I’ve come such a long way from my depression (1,5/2 years ago), I can’t believe it! It’s really true: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I am so, so much stronger than two years ago, I feel good about life, it’s wonderful. What a gift!
I’ve got so many goals on my list, but when I ran across this one I thought: oh yes, this is the best goal ever, and totally sums up all the other goals on my list!
So this has to be on top, definitely, because what’s life if you can’t enjoy every day?
