Obviously, life is not easy everyday! According to the situation, some days are better than others but even in the bad days you can find ways to face your sadness and go ahead. I will tell you my own way to be happy. Nowadays we can get almost everything we want and as a consequence, we want and we need always more and more things to meet our expectations. Therefore, it is more and more difficult to be happy for many people because they forget how to enjoy little things. Nevertheless, this is for me the best way to reach happiness.
I will take a concrete example by speaking about my internship experience, working for Studio Solution.com as an intern. For many of us this is the first experience far away from both family and friends and this can be quite unsettling. However, there are many ways to adapt yourself and to fully enjoy this rewarding experience. We are working in New Romney, a small seaside town and some of the interns are living in a house along the sea. I feel lucky and privileged to be one of them!
You can just sit down on the beach enjoying a peaceful sunrise above the sea focused on the soft lullaby played by waves and birds and feeling the morning breeze that caresses your face. But it can also be more common things such as laughing, a nice lunch, a sunny day, a good conversation or even a smile. Whatever, you just have to fully appreciate it, you will be more happy and the others too! Do not forget, life is like a mirror: Smile at it and it smiles back at you !
An internship here is more than just a professional experience it is a real life experience: obviously you will work but you will also cook, clean, do parties, experience some trips, meet people … Here you will be happy, you will be sad, you will cry and you will laugh but definitely, you will remember this rewarding experience.
You may think that there are small things, not enough to reach happiness but it was enough for me to be happy and it is still. You are not really convinced? Well, so keep in mind that every day can be your last day. That you are living in a safe place and that your main priority is not trying to survive. I am not saying that is it the only way to reach happiness but it is my own way. However everybody is different and as a consequence you have to find your own way.
“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” Dale Carnegie.
