Learn to Value Yourself, Which Means: Fight for Your Happiness – Ayn Rand

The more you realize that life is a gift, that everything changes and you’re not always in control; the more you are able to recognize that happiness is a choice. Finding joy and happiness in the present moment – no matter how inadequate it may seem – can make a difference both in your life and in the lives of those around you. And that’s worth fighting for.

While we all have different dreams and life goals, for many, living a meaningful life that positively influences others is important. The fight for happiness begins when you choose to be a leader, not a follower. When you chose to live your life in a manner that is pleasing to you – doing things that fulfill you, focusing on the hopeful or happy rather than the negative.

Every day, when you wake up in the morning, take a moment to be thankful for all that you have. Get ready and be determined to give the world the best you have to offer. If you can look in the mirror and see someone who is genuinely full of love, integrity, and honesty, then the world will be that much richer for having you in it. Happiness is a moment-to-moment choice; choose to concentrate on the good, both in the world and in yourself.

Don’t let perfect get in the way of good enough – you are enough, and what you are doing is enough. Remember that life could end at any time, whether you are ready or not. This means that at any point, your life could be considered complete. So why not live it your way? Don’t be so hard on yourself for living your life. Just do your best. Appreciate each breath you take in a way that allows you to continually strive towards ever bigger, ever brighter.

Do what you love to do, not because you have something to prove, but because you deserve happiness. Be happy because it’s your right.
