„It`s only my decision whether I will be happy or not.“
How to be happy
My method? I believe in the motto that the outside world reflects what is inside. So for the last almost 10 years I am working on my personal development through seminars, workshops, therapies etc. I believe that if I solve and understand the patterns which happened to me in my past, I can influence my future much better.

My life values
to be honest, open, friendly and helpful to other people and to live a fulfilling life that make a difference in somebody else`s life
What does happiness means to me?
It is a feeling that I don`t need a reason from outside to feel happy. It is when all goes as I want to and I have this inner peace inside me. Especially when there is no specific reason, just because I am living my life.
What does well-being means to me?
I think it is kinda same as a happiness in the previous question. It is overcoming the obstacles, solving problems in my life towards some goals and this feeling when it`s achieved or solved.
What influenced me in relation to happiness?
I decided to be happy when I was small, I lived with my divorced mum, she had many troubles with earning enough money. I was also beaten by my step-father for few years when I didn`t obey. I made many decisions not to live this way when I would have grown up.
How I sacrifice my happiness to something else?
I don`t anymore :)
My daily routine
I don`t have any specific routine, I think. I am just thankful every day that I woke up. There were times I was afraid I wouldn`t wake up and I had panic attacks but it is gone. We have a sticker on the wall saying "thank you".
