I’ve actually already forgotten where I saw this link today…I think Facebook? Regardless of where I saw it, I want to pass it along because it’s awesome. And because the holiday season seems to bring out the crazy in people, this link also seems very appropriate.

I’d like to highlight a couple of things off the list:

#1 – Stop spending time with the wrong people – How does this continually happen in life? I don’t know, but it does! Guilt? I’ve constantly found myself in social situation with all of the wrong people quite often and it’s ridiculous. I think part of this is learning to say no and making changes in friendships as you grow older and change. It’s hard, but it’s necessary.

#6 – Stop holding on to the past – Obviously, I don’t mean that people should forget the past but there are some things that need to be let go of in order to move forward. This is something I’ve personally been working on for a couple of years now.

#25 – Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t – I really liked this one because I think it’s hard for people to recognize that they are having a real problem and then take action to fix it. Sometimes the hardest thing is that first step of saying, “I need help.”

#30 – Stop being ungrateful – This is a no brainer and something I actually think about often. Life is all about perspective and yes, the grass is always greener on the other side, but take a moment to look at your life and give thanks.

I’m a firm believe that finding happiness for yourself opens you up to a fuller, richer life and I think that by following these ideas, a happy life can be achieved.
