Sending Some Sunday Happiness Your Way
What if happiness is a skill that we can develop by practising it often?
Welcome to BYBF: Be Your Best Friend with Anangsha - the Sunday newsletter that chooses to be happy despite all odds.
Did you know my friends often wonder how I’m “always happy”?
Since I’ve never been good with the spoken word, I fail to explain that I’m not always happy. I’m just really skilled at staying away from sadness.
I don’t think happiness is a choice. Rather, choosing happiness is a skill.
And just like any other skill, you can practise it daily to get better at it. I wasn’t born being always happy. This is a skill I discovered in my journey through life.
No matter how hard you try, you can't run away from sadness. Like happiness, it’s an integral part of life. What you can do is embrace it and not let it affect you. Even while surrounded by sadness, you still have the power to choose happiness, and that’s what this article is all about.
Recently, I wrote an article where I shared = what I mean by the concept of always staying away from sadness. I also defined the happiness muscle, teach you how to identify it, and start working it out. I shared my personalised five-minute daily ritual of choosing happiness that you can adopt in your life. This works for everyone — irrespective of whether you start it today or in 2021, whether you are 60 or 16, whether you make a lot of money or are still looking for a job. No matter who you are or where you live, you can start choosing happiness today.
In other news, I’m excited to welcome my first batch of students for Project Medium: Make Your First $100 - the course about making it big on Medium I recently launched. Through a series of recorded videos, checklists, one-on-one coaching sessions, and editing support, I plan to teach a few of you how to make your first $100 on Medium.
