How I Maintain Happiness by Sean S. By Freedom Mountain Academy On October 19, 2009 · Add Comment · In Uncategorized So, how do I maintain my happiness when I am happy? I don’t bother myself with others’ gossip. Those are just ignorant words that make me dislike the person I am gossiping about even more. I maintain a smile when I can. I keep my space clutter free. When my space is messed up, I feel crowded and like I might have to go back and clean it later. I like to do a five minute meditation to clear my mind. It’s not necessary, but it helps get me away from all the things that crowd my mind and to be at peace. I try to be willing to learn and accept change at all times, but not to change if it is not in my best interest. I look at the whole picture and weigh the benefits. I help all I can, even if it’s for an enemy, or if I’m being forced to. It lifts my conscience. I try to be as nice as I can. I don’t hold my mind on things like grudges. I think before vocalizing. It makes my words more efficient, and I realize that what I might have said, may have made me sound ignorant. I keep an open mind to life, because I never know what is coming, and it’s nice to be prepared.
