Sample text:

The first thing you have to do in order to be happy decides to be happy. I always made decisions I did not stick with but after a while, I discovered the decision was not something that you make once and for all; it is something you need to renew as long as you walk through life. To exemplify, when you subscribe to a gym and work out every day, you have decided that going to the gym is important to you. You don’t think about that decision again, about whether it was right or wrong, whenever you have a muscle strain; you may take some rest, but you never give up.

Happiness is the same; you should know that happiness is something you have to decide, create, and experience in your daily life. Most of us face a similar problem after we make the decision to be happy. We negotiate with ourselves along the way, we doubt our decisions, and we question ourselves. Why should we be happy when everyone is neutral? Why should we be happy when we are faced with so many challenges in life? You should know that the middle of the road is not the place to make up your mind or make a decision that you should have made sooner. You should also be aware of the reason why you are reconsidering the decision; it might be due to hunger, fatigue, stress, or even hanging out with the wrong people.
