5 Things That Happen When You Start To Make Yourself Happy

"Completely and Perfectly and Incandescently Happy."

5 Things That Happen When You Start To Make Yourself Happy

1. You Get Rid of Toxic People

When you start to make yourself happy, you realize who doesn’t. You recognize who it is in your life that drags you down, makes you worse, or is simply destructive to your well-being. When you begin to make yourself happy, you know who it is that is going to help you grow and better yourself. Not only do you lose the people who aren’t meant to be in your life, but you find who your real friends are, and what friendships will last in the long run.

2. You Make New Opportunities for Yourself

When you start to make yourself happy, you easily become more outgoing. You go out on a limb. You do things that may be out of your comfort zone. Since I’ve begun to create my own happiness, I’ve found so many opportunities to grow myself. I’ve put myself out there and it’s been nothing but successful.

3. You Find New Passions

Since I’ve begun to put my happiness first and began to become happy on my own, I’ve found new things to love and to invest my time into. Politics has become one of the biggest influences in my life, and it wouldn’t have happened without the confidence and happiness I’ve found within myself.

4. You Take New Adventures

Back to your comfort zone. It expands so much when you become happy on your own terms. You do things you’ve never done and experience things you never thought you would. In this year alone, I’ve been to all kinds of new places, with more to come.

5. You Cultivate and Grow Your Life

When you begin to make yourself happy, truly happy, you grow as a person. I can speak from personal experience when I say that I am more myself now than I have ever been. I have matured as I’ve grown happier, and my perspective on life, in general, has improved. The things that happen when you become a happier person do only one thing: Make you happier.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
