How To Choose Happiness

Life is our chance. It’s our small window of opportunity. Our situations may vary and our circumstances may differ, but we all have the ability to make a conscious, day-to-day decision to strive for happiness over sadness; for growth over stagnation; for life over death.

Choose happiness. When something upsets you — the car in front of you cuts you off; you feel yourself getting agitated; someone is rude or unpleasant towards you; things just don’t seem to be going your way — make a conscious decision to let it go and choose happiness. Don’t let your circumstances become an excuse not to be happy. You’re alive right now. That’s the only reason you need to be happy.

Choose growth. Do you feel as though you’re a better version of yourself today than you were yesterday? If you don’t, then it’s time to make a conscious decision to do something to improve yourself every single day. Stop watching so much TV. Stop oversleeping. Do something every day to improve your health (both mental and physical!). Small changes over a long period always equate to a greater overall change. As long as you’re living, you should be growing. Stagnation is for death.

It’s your life! What will you do with it?

  3. I’m so grateful to be alive especially as a 2-time bilateral breast cancer survivor of 17 years & still fighting an incurable multiple myeloma cancer for 7 years and had 2 bone marrow transplants. I know what it means to be thankful. God is my source. I love everyone enemies and friends.

  4. I agree with all the comments. Negativity is all around us everyday. With prayer, I try not to fall prey to it. Being alive is enough to be happy.

  5. My life is to important to me to sweat the small stuff! I feel so blessed! I’m going to enjoy my life to the fullest! I won’t let anything or anyone ruin it! It’s my life and I’m going to live it without NEGATIVITY!!! AMEN! 😉
