Choose to be Happy

Happiness is not something that someone or something will give you one fine day. It is not a feeling that will come over you once you visit or live in a certain place, or have certain friends, or drive a certain car, or wear a certain brand of jeans. To be happy, you must simply decide to be happy.

Are you unhappy that it's snowing where you live, even in the month of April? Be happy that you live in such a unique place, and go back in your mind to the time when you were mesmerized by snow. It is completely up to you to recreate that magic in your mind. Many people choose to become absolutely miserable whenever it rains. They become resentful, consequently becoming extremely fatigued. Why would you do this to yourself? Wouldn't you rather choose happiness over misery?

Happiness lies in not getting what you want, but in wanting what you get. What is coming your way? Do you have many files you must work on today? Think of all those people who do not have a job. Are there many household chores you have to tackle? Be happy that you will get exercise, something you never find the time to do. Are you miserable because you have a cold or the flu? Be thankful it's not pneumonia. Are you feeling annoyed due to your child waking you up at all times of the night? Think of the time you thanked God for giving you that child.

You can choose to be happy.
