Sometimes a song is all I need to cheer up my blah mood, give me energy, and push through a tough time. These are songs that I love that have uplifting and motivating lyrics. I’ve included my spotify album below and embedded some of my favorite music videos. The others have direct links. Enjoy!

Feeling Peace, Finding Forgiveness

Forgiveness is about being at peace. Forgiveness is about your happiness, not the one who hurt you. Learn to let go of past pain and move on toward peace.

Do you ever find yourself stuck thinking about what someone did that hurt you and you find anger and frustration building up inside? Does forgiveness seem impossible because the person doesn’t care about what they did or they haven’t asked for forgiveness? Maybe they have asked for it, but their actions hurt you greatly and seem too big to ever forgive.

Forgiveness is about being at peace. Forgiveness is about you and your happiness, not the one who hurt you.

10 Ways to Find Happiness and Joy

It's easy to get stuck in our everyday routine and lose the happiness and joy we once felt. Try these 10 ideas to help you find happiness in everyday life.

Do you ever find yourself in a rut, feeling down, with no ideas on how to get out of that mood? Have you ever watched a child filled with wonder, discovering something new, completely light up and smile ear to ear? Sometimes I wish the little things fascinated me as much as they fascinate my three year old. Today he discovered the awesomeness of a pen with four colors, the kind with tabs on the side that you push down to change the ink color. As I was showing him how to use it, he got so excited he started drooling a little as he grinned. Then he spent several minutes switching from color to color, scribbling on a piece of paper. What a simple, happy moment for both of us.

There have been numerous studies about what happy people do to stay happy. Some of these tips may seem like common sense, but when you really think about it, do you take the time to do them? Try some of these mood lifters today and see how you feel.

10 Ways to Find Happiness and Joy:

1. Think happy thoughts. Research shows that if you can go two minutes focusing on ONE thing, you can change your emotions. Why not focus on one good, happy thing and feel your mood lift? Interestingly enough though, you should not force a smile. The happy thoughts need to come first, and then let your smile shine through. If you fake smile without cultivating happy thoughts, it could actually worsen your mood.
