“You are the CEO of your life.”

You are responsible for your happiness. In fact, you create it. You attract it. You manifest it.

You are the architect of your reality. You choose your thoughts, your perceptions and your reaction to external forces. You possess all of the tools you need to expand your awareness to orchestrate the evolution of your consciousness, to choose happiness, to choose love. You are that powerful. Create the life you deserve. Vibrate love.

Here is something one of our moderators posted to the Good News Taylor Made Facebook page. Use these ideas to give yourself a head start on the road to happiness.

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. While you walk, smile. It is the ultimate antidepressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.

3. When you wake up in the morning, pray for guidance for your purpose, today.

4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, broccoli and almonds.

6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

7. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive in the present moment.

8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed-out charge card.

9. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Forgive them for everything.

11. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

12. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

13. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

14. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, “In five years, will this matter?”

17. Help the needy, Be generous. Be a giver not a taker.

18. What other people think of you is none of your business.

19. Time heals everything.

20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

21. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

23. Each night before you go to bed, be thankful for what you’ll accomplish, today.

24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
