The Secret Path To Happiness

I have to be honest with you. Sometimes I get a little fed up with the whole self-affirmation, gratitude, get rid of toxic people, feel good about yourself, philosophy, movement or whatever hippy name we are using today. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe there is power in our own thoughts and that we should love and take care of ourselves. Otherwise, we are no good to anyone.

However, once in awhile, I feel like people are missing the point. It’s not all about you, how you feel and what’s in it for you.

If you really want to find happiness…

  • Affirm someone else’s self
  • Make it onto someone’s gratitude list
  • Be the reason someone is a little less toxic
  • Make someone feel good about themselves…


Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.

  1. I love the way you start posts, Elena. Saw the start to this in my FB feed and just had to click through and read the rest and your advice is spot on. Make it onto someone’s gratitude list – love that.
