As Epicurus believed, man is big and valuable. Happiness, blessedness, it has within it, it reaches to put aside what disturbs him and hells his life. Here we give you 10 small but valuable lessons of happiness given by our ancient ancestors!
1. Do everything with love!
We live with emotions, not with hours on the sundial. We should count the time with the heartbeats.
Love is the cause of unity of all things
2. Embrace the challenges and learn from them
As the ancient saying goes, “Live today and forget the past”. Challenges are always an opportunity for something new. Even NO can become a new one to move in a new direction. The biggest obstacle in our lives is ourselves.
“Small opportunities are often the beginning of major projects”.
3. Believe in yourself, hear it, and do not take very seriously what others tell you.
No one knows you better than yourself. And your kids. You will meet many people who will not share the same ideas, the same views and the same vision as you with regard to bringing up children. There will be many who will give you free advice on how your life should be as a mother or father. Listen to them without judging them and follow what your heart tells you
“He who knows to hear is even benefiting from those who speak badly.”
“Learn to be silent, leave the mind quiet to hear and absorb”
4. Dream what you want, not what you do not want
It is important to dream, to make great dreams and never to stop dreaming. But always hope for the best
“Do not spend what you want for what you do not have. Remember that what you have now is something of all that you once dreamed of getting ”
5. Never give up and never lose your faith
Replace fear in hope. Humility, or love and faith, can do miracles. And everything will happen at the right time and the right time.
“There is nothing” big “that is created suddenly … A bunch of grapes need time to blossom, to bear fruit and to … ripen”!
6. Always think and feel “positive”
Positive thinking is the creation of ancient Greeks. Always focus on the present and the reasons why you are happy! Remove the negative people from your life and always be surrounded by people with positive energy. And as our Ancestors say:
“Medicine is intertwined with the essence of the mind”
“Happiness depends on ourselves”
7. Look inside your answers
Always thinking and introspection helps us find the right solution when we feel confused
“What we can achieve internally will change the external reality.” Plutarch
8. The difficult situations make us more courageous
“Our courage does not seem in our every day happy relationships, but in the challenges of life and adversity”
9. Do not resist your destiny
“No one can escape his destiny”
“Everyone has three virtues: Prudence, strength and good luck”
10. See your mistakes positively and as experiences that will move in the direction of your dreams.
“The one who does most makes the most mistakes”
