“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Oh to be happy your mind screams over and over again. Will it ever let go of this refrain?
I will be happy someday soon. If only I could have one more serving of French fries or ice cream, then I would be happy. That’s what your mind says
Perhaps now is the time to stop stuffing in all extra stuff like food, alcohol, s*x and anything else that is deemed to provide happiness in your life.
Where on earth then could you look for happiness?
Look for it in all things that are in your life right now. Right here. Right now.
Don’t leave anything out because everything that is your life is part of the fabric of what makes a life.
If happiness is not part of your life now then don’t give up your power to choose it.
If something has to go in order to make space for more happiness then let it go.
Use your power of choice to choose your life.
No one can do it for you.
This is who you are.
