Finding happiness within starts with acceptance: the acceptance of yourself, as well as your circumstances and situations. Life will never be perfect. But life seems perfect when you’ve accepted that life is not perfect. Happiness comes when you accept the imperfection, the flaws, the ups and downs, and enjoy the moments in life.
Everything is fleeting: the good things will pass, and the bad things will pass. Just accept life as it is: no matter what it is, this too shall pass. Adjust and adapt yourself to situations as much as you can. If you’re tight on money this month, then spend less; if you hate your job, then quit or plan to quit; if your partner is abusive, then break up with him or her; if you’re prone to disease, then start exercising and eat well.
