Life doesn’t go easy on anyone. We all have days, weeks or even months sometimes when nothing seems to go right, when all our plans and all our efforts towards those plans get completely destroyed and when hopelessness is the only thing we feel.
At times like these, it’s important to remember that these hardships are only here to make us stronger and for us to continue to have faith that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. I hope you save this article somewhere and if you ever feel disheartened or discouraged, these 11 quotes and the advice that follows will help you get through the day:
We’re so busy watching out for what’s just ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are. – Calvin & Hobbes

And now, some tips from our own experience that might help you live a happier life:
Build your own happiness
If you ever feel bored or sad or if you just can’t seem to figure out the meaning of your life, then stop waiting! Stop waiting to magically get a new job offer. Stop waiting for your friends to call and invite you over. And stop waiting for your life to turn over without any effort.
This is your life and only you can control how happy or sad it turns out to be.
Don’t just wait for your situation to get fixed, go out and look for the things that make you happy, focus your energies on the people you love and always be open to new experiences.
Clear your mind
You have a lot of work. There are deadlines to meet and people who you’re accountable to. But amidst all the stress and work, don’t forget to relax and give your mind some time off. Don’t over work yourself, make a conscious effort to have some free time and get rid of all your anxiety.
Keep making small and positive changes
Sometimes, the only reason we get so fed up of life is because of how stagnant it becomes. We keep doing the same things over and over again. We keep following this one set routine and we forget how many new things are still left for us to explore and discover. Start from the little things. Buy a new book, start taking those guitar lessons you always wanted or take a few days off to go on a trip with your friends. Keep bringing changes to your routine and you’ll start feeling a lot better about life in general.
There are two ways of handling a bad situation in our life – one is to start thinking of it as the end of the world and just give up; the second is to stay strong and know that this time, like all the other hard times, is only temporary. If we let negativity cloud our minds, then every fall and every minor setback will tend to pull us further down.
Think of every difficulty as a chance to grow, a chance to become wiser and a chance to appreciate the good times even more than before.
Stop wasting your time
This life is too short to waste it on stalking random people on Facebook, spending the entire day watching mindless TV shows or making your cell phone your only friend.
Stop draining your time and energy on activities that don’t add any value to your life. Turn off your laptop, go out into the real world, gain valuable experiences and make your life worth living.
