Happiness is an accomplishment

This quote is a big shout out to everyone struggling with a mood disorder or mental illness. To some, it may seems an outrageous statement, because “happiness just happens”, but it is not always this easy. Too many people have to make a conscious decision to be happy or at least not overwhelmed and anxious every single day.

If you are one of the many, learn what makes you feel better, even a little bit: it may be music, or a smell, or a soft blanket…whatever it is, keep it handy. Redefine what it means to be happy: contentment and serenity in the long run is way more satisfying that butterflies in your stomach for a short time. And if all fails, please ask for help. There are many resources and many people who love you and want to lend a hand Take the help, and medicine if needed, without shame. Don’t wait.
