Just STOP reading right now.
Go ahead. Just forget about it. You don’t really want to be happy anyway.
I’m betting that in addition to happiness, you really don’t want love, kindness or joy, either.
Or do you?
If you do then I have something spectacular to share. Happiness, love, kindness, joy (and everything else) is a choice. It’s true. I know you’ve probably heard this before and this isn’t new to you.
Just like the sun on a cloudy day, you have every emotion and feeling available to you. The sun doesn’t just go away on the cloudy days – the sun is always there. The difference between you and the sun is CHOICE.
You may have clouds in your life. In fact, I guarantee you have them. We all do.
Why does it seem that some people, no matter the circumstance, are happy and joyful?
Simple answer: the recognition that they have a choice.
Just like the sun shining brightly even when there are clouds in the sky, you can choose happiness, love, joy and kindness at any time.
So, you now have two choices. You can either forget about being happy, you don’t want it anyway OR you can choose to be happy, given the circumstances.
Like I said, I know you’ve heard this before and I’m curious what have you been choosing?
