“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” - Gerard Way
When I think about the word ‘happy’ I immediately think of the mindset that I’ve chosen to adopt. For the longest time I felt as If I were drowning with all the negativity and anxiety that plagued my life. No matter the situation I would always think the worst, which in turn made my life pretty much a living hell.
Once I learned that life is never going to be perfect and things are going to go wrong from time to time, my whole outlook on life changed. I realised that the way I react to situations changes everything, from how I feel physically all the way to the outcome. When obstacles are thrown at me, I take the time to think everything through before reacting. It not only makes it easier for me to deal with but also for others if they are involved.
Life is messy, imperfect, and down-right hard sometimes. By adapting a positive mindset and letting things go that are out of your control, life suddenly become a bit more brighter even if nothing else has changed. Be happy - life is way too short to be walking around miserable with every speed bump you encounter.
Just like this photo, imperfections are a part of life. Sometimes it doesn’t go right the first time around but look closely and you’ll find the beauty in everything. Imperfections make you who you are and that makes you beautiful.
