It seems everywhere I turn, I am reading about or hearing about happiness.
Everyone wants to be happy, right?
I meet people from different walks of life. Some seem happier than others.
Life situations come along to test our strength and our resolve. Yet some people are happy while others sink into their old habits of blame and guilt.
Yet they all appear to have one thing in common. Happy or not, their happiness state seems to be up to them.
Something within each of us allows for happiness to be there, notwithstanding the circumstances. What is that?
Here are three ideas to think about:
- Your basic nature is happy. When you were born you were a joyful, happy little being. That is still with you.
- When you are happy new possibilities open up. When you blame, feel guilty or angry the door to happiness and new possibilities is closed.
- The power of choice is yours. Happiness is a choice every day. So, when you get up in the morning, look in the mirror and smile. Your brain will thank you.
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” Abraham Lincoln
