40 simple ways to enjoy life and be happy


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 (NIV)

Are you taking time to enjoy your life? Well today is yours! Yesterday is over and tomorrow is not promised to anyone. You don’t have to stay the way you are. The gift of life is precious. It comes as a surprise every day. Unwrapping the gift grows with mystery and anticipation. Once opened, you will either be surprised and happy at what’s inside or disappointed because it’s not what you expected.

Yes, disappointments can come in pretty boxes too, but it doesn’t mean your life is over. Trying to find true happiness can be difficult at best, but remember what God said in Psalms 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (NIV). Try to live a life of simplicity. Your days should be filled with activities and thoughts that are conducive to emotional healing. When you change your attitude and how you think and feel about yourself,  the whole course of your life can be changed into ways that strengthen, build character and confidence!
