How do I stay so happy?
There are two types of happiness. There is short-term happiness and internal happiness. Internal is the only kind that people cannot take away from you and the reason I am told to radiate happiness. Just like everyone else, I have days where I feel sad or discouraged because of lack of short-term happiness, but it is my internal happiness that keeps me going. Internal happiness is a long-term process and takes a lot of learning about yourself. Read my blog as I take you on the journey to achieving internal happiness. Once you achieve this, you will feel invincible to any and every hurdle you will face.
What do you do to create short-term happiness?
To the left you can see just a few things that have helped me to maintain short-term happiness. As humans we find happiness in the things we desire and get.

With our society, its easy to feel satisfied by material or artificial objects or things such as likes on a photo or having new clothes. When we are wrapped up in this type of short-term happiness we find it to be disrupted often.
