Through my work, I've come to notice the themes that characterize unhappy people, and the changes that move them from feeling stuck in their own crap to enjoying life. While everyone is different, and happiness is by no means an easily achievable goal, I've learned that there are certain traits happy people share.
Kayla Mueller is not dead. The good doesn't die. She went to Syria although she knew it was dangerous; she wanted to help people in need. She is a hero, just like Sumer, the teacher who donated his kidney to a stranger and everyone else who's fighting terrorism and evil. We just have to remember to pass it on.
Innately, wholly and totally, you are an amazing human being. In fact, there is no one on this planet just like you. You have gifts to give to your friends, family, community and the world that no one else can give and you have a special perspective that no one else holds. You are uniquely and completely awesome. Yet, you forget this divine fact every day.
