"The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you not going to stay where you are" - Unknown.
This is a bit of a different post to normal but I have wanted to write about something like this for a while.
I've never really admitted it to anyone but over the last year and a half I wouldn't say I was very happy, I would say the most unhappy I have been though was about a year ago. Although things aren't all great in my life right now I really wanted to start trying to make positive changes.
I'm really into quotes by the way so expect a whole bunch in this post.

" It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live" - Albus Dumbledore
I would say I waste a lot of my time thinking about 'what if's' and wishing for things that I can't have and what I have realised is that instead of hoping for the impossible, I need to make the most of what I have as I don't realise what I've got, we all sometimes take for granted the little things in life, so I want to try and appreciate those things and hopefully you will too.
I love these two websites, they just help me realise how much I actually have.
We can only move forward in life, there is no going back so why dwell on the past?
The most that we can all do in life is to try our best at everything and spread happiness and love to everyone around us.
Life is too short to not put our all into everything that we do. It's too short to hold a grudge, too short to not tell someone that you love them. Recently I've been shown that you never know when your last time seeing someone is going to be.
"It's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all. In which case, you fail by default" - JK Rowling.
You can brighten someone else's day so easily, so why not? If you start to spread happiness you could find that you feel more happy as well.
But we all need to know that it's okay to be sad, it's alright to cry and feel despair and sadness. They are healthy, human emotions and we all feel it sometimes, some more than others but don't ever belittle someone's feelings as you will never know everything that's going on. Most people only let on so much, the rest could be a mystery to you.

I hope this helped at least one person, I think writing this all down definitely helped me.
