How to Be Happy...
1 -Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
2- Make the best of your circumstances. No one has everything , and everyone has something of sorrow intermingled with gladness of life. The trick is to make the laughter outweigh the tears.
3 -Don't take yourself too seriously. Don't think that somehow you should be protected from misfortune that befalls other people.
4 -You can't please everybody. Don't let criticism worry you.
5 -Don't let your neighbor set your standards. Be yourself.
6 -Do the things you enjoy doing , but stay out of debt.
7- Never borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than real ones.
8- Since hate poisons the soul , do not cherish jealously , enmity , grudges . Avoid people who make you unhappy.
9 -Have many interests. If you can't travel , read about new places.
10 -Don't hold postmortems. Don't spend your time brooding over sorrows or mistakes. Don't be one who never gets over things.
11- Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
12 -Keep busy at something . A busy person never has time to be unhappy.
Robert Louis Stevenson.
