One minute we are happy, the next we are not – that is life. One minute we are riding the wave and the next we feel we are drowning. We all want to live a life of happiness, not to live in fear, however often we make choices in life that takes us away from the joy we are searching for. There is no magical way to make us happy forever, but how can we live most of our life in a good space that is predominantly on top of the wave instead of just treading water at the bottom in order to survive?
How are you choosing happiness in your life? Each and every day you can choose to have a positive outlook and create a happy day, or you can choose to live in fear, anger, resentment. These negative feelings just make you spiral down and your day ends up feeling like a slog. It is your choice. As scary as it may sound you have created your life. Everything that you have said yes to, every situation and person that you have said no to, every choice that you have made and opportunity that you let go by, has contributed to where you are today. We are responsible for our own lives!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHOOSE HAPPINESS, HERE ARE A FEW WISE TIPS:
- Be grateful
- Don’t sweat the small stuff
- Accept your uniqueness
- Be kind – to others and yourself
- Know that your thoughts, words and actions have an impact
- Smile at a stranger
- Laugh more
- Give your time and energy to others
- Give your time and energy to yourself
- Don’t worry – be present
- Do your yoga and meditation
- Live a healthy lifestyle
- Try new things
The past has happened. There is nothing you can do about it. You can’t blame your parents, your partner, your boss for the situation you are in. Yes, they would have had an influence in your life, but you had the power. You had it all along. You still had choices and decisions that you made along the way to get to where you are now. You have the power each and every day to carve out the life and reality that you chose to live.
