Experience peace: Give your attention to what’s at hand. Even if it’s not the best of experiences, you’ll feel more at peace than you would if you are holding on to unproductive thoughts as well.

Surround Yourself with Love and Joy ~ by Kim Bedene from The Curated Heart ~ Guest Post

We’re facing uncertain times, and this can make us feel anxious, stressed and worried. It’s human to feel this way, so we shouldn’t judge ourselves for having a few bad days. But the good news is, there are little things we can do, that will help us transform and feel a little bit happier, and an important part of this is looking at what we surround ourselves with.

Why happiness is simple

Happiness likes to keep things simple. Happiness evades you when you set your expectations so high on what it takes for you to be happy.

I encourage you to find happiness especially in your private moments, be it in your inner reflections or moments of routine. Look at how far you’ve come! How much strength and perspective have you accumulated as a result? Lastly, help make happiness go around. Your words and actions are powerful enough to make someone’s day. A few words of encouragement go a long way.
