I encourage you to spend some time reflecting on this thought. If you give up your choice to be happy, you become a victim, a victim of circumstance. When you realize that you do actually have a choice, doors open and happiness can be within reach.
And I’m not saying it’s easy. Things happen that don’t make us happy. And we also have a choice to not be happy. To sit in the muck of it and be OK with that too. It’s when we’ve had enough of sitting in it, that’s when we decide and choose to be and feel something different. Different…like happy.
Today, I invite you to join me in affirming “I always have a choice and choose to be happy.” Notice those times that you feel it’s not your choice, and breath through it. Remind yourself that you may not be able to control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to what happens to you. Allow yourself to play with this.
