What if I were to tell you that you are as happy as you choose to be. Read that again.... what if your happiness depended on you and nothing else? Nothing will make you more or less happy or joyful than your thoughts. You have absolute and utter control in the way that you choose your thoughts. Your perceptions and how you chose to respond to life will dictate the direction of life and how beautiful it shines. You have the choice in every moment!
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence and to not desire happiness is complete madness to me. Once you realize this simple truth, you won’t want to live any other way and it would seem madness to pursue anything else.
As humans, we seem to believe that we will only be happy if we have that partner, that car, the job, that paycheck, that family, that body etc etc but happiness is not about arriving at some place or having the perfect childhood, happiness is available to us every second of every day. It’s about the joy of the journey and not the outcome or destination.
Don’t hold on to or blame your lack of happiness on something that happened in your past.... the only reason that it’s part of your present and will probably follow you into the future is that you allow it. You think about it and speak about it, it could have happened 20 years ago but you still let it own so much of you.
Begin looking for things to appreciate in your life and realign your thoughts with this simple shift as often as you can in a day. Whatever thoughts you give attention to will replicate and so watch your thoughts and see where they go throughout the day. Realign your thoughts with a gratitude or positive thought and see how your life changes. Focus on the good stuff and this will attract more good stuff.
Just be easy.... everything is unfolding perfectly. Relax and have an attitude that trusts, knows and believes that amazing things will happen! Things of which you have never seen before.
You are far far more than you believe you to be, all the worlds strength and power rests in you! Spend some time getting to know the person you can be.
“I’m going to be happy. I’m going to skip. I’m going to be glad. I’m going to smile a lot. I’m going to be easy. I’m to count my blessings. I’m going to look for reasons to feel good. I’m going to dig up positive things from my past. I’m going to look for positive things where I stand. I”m going to look for positive things in the future. It is my natural state to be a happy person. It’s natural for me to love and to laugh. This is what is most natural for me. I am a happy person!”
