happinessAsk yourself Am I happy with the relationships I have with my family, friends and my job?  Your work place is especially important considering you spend more time at your job then you do at home, realize that if you are unhappy at your workplace no matter how hard you try, there will always be that niggling feeling of dissatisfaction and negativity that will linger on. If you find that you are unhappy with any of your relationships, do some soul searching and figure out if the relationship at your workplace is worth salvaging, if it seems hopeless then maybe you want to kindly walk away from the relationship.

I am not advocating that you quit your job or even walk away from it, unless of course you are in a financial position to do so.  Since the recession is still affecting many of our lives quitting is certainly not an option for most.  A few things that might help you is to make a list of the things that you do love about your job, it might be as simple as; your hours, your benefits, one co-worker.  Once you are to make a list of the things you like or love about your job then focus on those things.

Most people have tendencies to compare themselves to others, know that you are special just the way you and don’t forget to tell yourself that every day, not just once, twice or even three times tell yourself that every time you being to feel negative thoughts creeping in.  Loving yourself is not about being boastful, or even prideful, loving yourself is about accepting who you are and not comparing who you are with others.

“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” – Timothy Bentley

self-assessmentTake time daily, weekly to assess yourself and your life and see if you don’t start to notice a difference in you.  Ask yourself how you perceive your being, what you feel and how you act when faced with different kinds of situations. Be honest with yourself even if you might not like the answers to your questions.  That is the only way you can change your attitude. After you have done so, ask yourself what you can do to change your reactions into something more positive and upbeat.
