Words are used to communicate ideas.

How you define something, shapes how you approach it.

When you define a person as a friend, you behave in a loving, friendly manner.

When you define a situation as hostile, you behave in a guarded, careful manner.

How you use certain words can have a huge impact on how you approach life.

Changing the words, can your approach and attitude to life.

Here are some words you should consider using more in conversations with yourself and others about how you feel.

If you find yourself asking:

Am I happy?

Maybe consider replacing the question with:

Do I have [insert word] in my life?

  • Peace of mind
  • Contentment
  • Fulfilment
  • Enjoyment
  • Laughter
  • Well-being
  • Cheerfulness
  • Playfulness
  • Hopefulness
  • Blessedness
  • Stability
  • Gratitude

The secret of contentment is the realisation that life is a gift, not a right.

PS: You don’t need experience all of them; you don’t.
