Happiness is a choice. Just like what to have for breakfast and what we wish to wear today.
It's not a pill that you swallow. It's not magic or mystery.
It sometimes takes all the strength you have and it sometimes pisses people off.
In every moment of your day you can choose between happy and miserable.
Whether your life gets better or worse in that moment is your decision and yours only.
I know that this seems like simple fact. But to a few people it may still be a mystery.
They may be walking around in their day completely oblivious that it is them that can make the change. Turn it around. Turn tragedy into triumph. Turn that frown upside down.
To choose happiness, no matter the circumstances is a great feat. And it's something that most spiritual teachers will tell you is the key to life, to abundance, to great health and relationships.
You don't have to believe my words. You don't even have to read them. Because this is a choice also.
