“Choose Happiness”...when I used to see that phrase in my former life, my reaction was so much different than what it is today!
I am curious, does happiness feel like a choice to you? In today’s day and age, it may not always feel that way.
For some, happiness is a mask they wear to hide behind. Some believe happiness is a fake concept. Others...well...they are really just that happy.
It is such an old fashioned concept, happiness. It seems like it is so rarely discussed anymore.
The news media does not talk about it. Most work environments talk about anything but happiness.
Happiness has become a vague notion anyways...what does it really mean?
Here is what I know for sure...happiness is not something you find or that other people give you. Instead, it is something that you choose on your own.
Making small changes like being grateful...this creates the shift in your outlook.
You can wake up everyday and live your life, or you can wake up everyday and let life happen to you. Whether you drive the bus or ride the bus (like in the book The Energy Bus) it is always your choice.
I have chosen gratitude, and it has helped give me a new perspective on life today...as well as the future. The first place I started to grow in more gratitude...write it down!
More about that here in this video
Putting this into practice helped me change my focus. Instead of seeing all of the bad, I started to see so much more of the good in my life. That good, even the small stuff was huge in my daily outlook of life.
I am now content with what I have, while also reaching for growth.
Being balanced and growing...that is real happiness to me!
