Life is what you make it. This is a very familiar statement and a true one too. You can be as happy as you want to be or you can be as sad as you want to be. You can’t wait for someone to make you happy, you have to make yourself happy.
Do things that you like or things that you enjoy. Whether it is reading a book, playing a sport or baking or anything that interests you and gives a bit of joy, do it. At the end of it all you will feel contended and happy for doing something that you enjoy or like.
Don’t wait for anyone to make you happy, you make yourself happy. If you wait for people to make you happy it may never happen or even if it does happen, it may be minimal & short lived.
So if it is your birthday or anniversary or some special day in your life, do something to make you happy on that day. Even if you bake your own cake on your birthday, that’s ok, because you know what, at the end of it all, you will have a birthday cake. And I am sure that having a birthday cake would be a nice thing.
So whatever it takes to make you happy, do it!
