Nothing to do With Luck: Ask Noah

You may not have the perfect job or the perfect love, yet you have tools. See the tips below.

Enjoy: Try not to allow your dissatisfactions to rob you of enjoying the many things in life that may prove quite satisfying, when not distracted by grandiose definitions of what success should look like.

Experience: Drop your preconceived expectations of what happiness seems to be. This will free you to open to newer experiences within familiar and unfamiliar environments.

Grow: Notice when you're comparing and contrasting how "lucky" your life felt before, and how "unlucky" it feels to you now. Comparing different stages is illogical. As you face new challenges and hold greater expectations of yourself, you are faced with bigger decisions.

Growth can sometimes feel painful or confusing and complications follow your evolution. Yet, life does become sweeter with wisdom.

Present: As you keep dwelling in the past, so, too, does your life, leaving you incapable of living in the moment.

Perhaps the key to you finding a "bit of simple happiness" is to just be a little softer with yourself. Be present to your moment-to-moment needs and ease up on yourself.

Examine: Pause in demanding that your "luck" change and get curious as to why you actually became dissatisfied in the first place. Spot where you're categorizing your unhappiness; love, work, finances.

It's foolish to say these things aren't important. However, it is the meaning we attach to them that gives them too much significance.

Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not wish you the best of luck!
