HOW TO BE HAPPY (Secret to Happiness)
To all of you out there that don't go to bed hungry, that get to taste cold clean drinking water, that get to have a hot shower every morning, and that have a roof over their heads. This video is for you.
Every morning you wake up you're given 2 choices.
1. To wake up happy and excited to be alive.
2. To be miserable and have a negative outlook on life
I use to choose the second one most mornings.
I was a spoilt, privileged, very lucky Canadian that grew up with a great life.
It wasn't always perfect and I went through shit like everyone else, but overall I had everything I needed to live a happy life.
It wasn't until I traveled the world that I changed my attitude.
It wasn't until I got to see how people live on the other side of the world that my eyes finally opened to how good I have it.
In 1st world countries, we live in this bubble. We have it so good that we come up with things to bitch about because we've never felt what a hard life is truly like.
There are people on the other side of the world that literally have nothing.
That steak you're having for dinner is a small bowl of rice.
That nice cold water from the tap is polluted and will make you very sick if you drink it
That hot shower in the morning is a bucket on the side of the road, dish soap and a dirty rag.
And that roof over your head is a tin shack.
The crazy part is these people are the happiest people I've ever met in my life.
The only thing you need to do to be happy is appreciate that you're alive.
Appreciate that you're breathing right now and have internet to watch this video.
After this everything else doesn't seem to bother you anymore.
You have no need to be miserable when you wake up because you're just happy to be human.
Happiness is all based on our attitudes and it's incredibly difficult to change our attitudes when life is so freakin good.
It isn't until you get the opportunity to see how the rest of the world lives to truly understand how easy it is to be happy with what you have.
When you wake up tomorrow spend a couple minutes in bed meditating on how good your life is and focus on the positives, not all the negatives.
Show appreciation that you have food in the fridge, a bed to sleep in and a shirt over your back.
