Choosing Happiness

Everyone always says “happiness is a choice.”

*Eye roll*

Until recently I literally thought these people were off their rockers. They never had to deal with anything in their lives and that’s why they could say that. Basically accusing me of “choosing to be sad!”

 

“I can’t control my feelings.”

“I’m so sad and can’t stop crying.”

“I feel depressed and can’t even imagine what happy feels like right now.”

All things thought by me…probably multiple times along with much worse. One wrong move would send my whole day south.

Recently, what I’ve come to learn is that what you put out into the world is what you get back. (The universe or something like that?)

Everyday we all have the choice to wake up and decide if we are going to have a good day or a bad one.

Now, I consciously choose to have good days!!

Don’t get me wrong, life ain’t easy, but I do what I can.

 

Instead of feeling sorry for myself, now I think ‘how can I improve this situation?’

Instead of thinking the world has it out for me when I fail, I choose to think of new ways to succeed.

Gone are the days where I have a bad moment and then have a bad rest of the day! Bye, girl!

 

Why waste your life living in a constant state of numbness just waiting for the next mini disaster? I think we all can feel comfortable in negativity sometimes. It’s so much easier to just slip into that depressed state.Β But that is no way to live a fulfilling life!

Replace your negative self talk with positivity and your life will change.

I choose joy.

Every day I choose to make the best out of the situations thrown at me.

I choose happiness.

  1. VERY well said! It is so easy to let life’s upsets consume us: our thoughts AND actions. We are in control of how we choose to react. It has taken me many years to learn how to actually control my own feelings, but am happy that 42 years into my life, I, like my little sis, choose joy!!! I love you, nutMeg!
