Flourishing can make you happy AF

Being felicitous can make you happy, or as I like to call it, being fancy AF.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Felicitous? Phil dude, what the heck does that even mean?” Well, let me break it down for you. Felicitous means well-suited for the occasion, appropriate, and fitting. And let me tell you, there’s nothing better than being felicitous, especially when you’re feeling fancy.

So, how can we have more felicitous moments in our lives?

The answer is simple: by flourishing more. Now, I’m not talking about becoming a plant or a tree or something (although that would be pretty cool). I’m talking about flourishing in the sense of thriving, growing, and becoming the best version of ourselves.

When we’re flourishing, we’re living our best lives. We’re happy, we’re fulfilled, and we’re making a difference in the world. And when we’re happy and fulfilled, we’re more likely to have felicitous moments in our lives.

But how can you flourish more, and create more felicitous moments? Here are a few fun tips:

Tip #1: Do what makes you happy

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s amazing how many people don’t do what makes them happy. Instead, they do what they think they should be doing or what others expect of them. But if you want to flourish, you need to do what makes you happy. Whether that’s painting, singing, dancing, or watching cat videos on YouTube, do more of what brings you joy.

Tip #2: Step out of your comfort zone

One of the best ways to flourish is to step out of your comfort zone. Try something new, take a risk, or challenge yourself in some way. When you do something that scares you, you grow and become a better version of yourself.

Tip #3: Surround yourself with positivity

When you’re surrounded by negativity, it’s hard to flourish. But when you’re surrounded by positivity, you’re more likely to thrive. Surround yourself with people who lift you up, read books that inspire you, and listen to music that makes you happy.

Tip #4: Take care of yourself

Self-care is crucial if you want to flourish. This means getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising, and taking time for yourself. When you take care of yourself, you’re better able to take care of others and make a difference in the world.

Tip #5: Keep learning

Learning is key to flourishing. When you’re constantly learning, you’re growing and expanding your mind. This can be anything from taking a course, reading a book, or trying a new hobby.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Phil dude, what does all of this have to do with being felicitous?” Well, let me tell you. When you’re happy and fulfilled, you’re more likely to have felicitous moments in your life. You’re more likely to make the right choices, say the right things, and be in the right place at the right time. And when that happens, you feel fancy AF.

Do what makes you happy, step out of your comfort zone, surround yourself with positivity, take care of yourself, and keep learning. And before you know it, you’ll be having more felicitous moments than you can count. Remember, being Happy AF, by being real AF and fancy AF, is not just a state of mind, it’s a way of life.
