It is hard; I sit in tears often thinking it isn’t possible, but it is, I see a butterfly outside the window and voila hope renewed, My sons will give me a random out of the blue hug- hope renewed
Then the thoughts come smashing through, I have beautiful people in my life, I live in a stunning part of the world, I work with sensational people. I have a family who have been with me through everything, I have been through so much and I am here and I am strong and I am still finding so many reasons to smile.
Gratitude can free you, it will free you from negativity and hanging your head down, it will make you lift your face to the sky and breathe in deeply because you are worth it you do deserve to be here and you deserve to be happy and free, you really really do! You are wonderful and you are here, there is no better more beautiful reason to celebrate, to be happy and to absolutely to be happy.
I am learning, and I am learning it really fast that I am in charge of my happiness, I have know this for a very long time, I have head known that no one else is responsible for my happiness, but my heart? I don’t think my heart really believed it and it took a very long time, many tears and loads of beating myself up before I realised that actually............ I am in control.
Shit is going to happen!!! It WLL happen, but here is the really cool amazing and super awesome thing, you are in control, you get to choose and pick and select exactly how you are going to react to what happens, you can go into a mope fest or you can choose happiness, you can choose to take a lesson from it or to brush it off and realise that there is no need to waste any beautiful precious thoughts over it. Happiness is a choice; it is your choice, how fantastic is that? It puts you in the driver’s seat. You are totally responsible for every choice you make,
May I suggest choosing to be happy, it makes life so much easier! And if we can make the happy choices in the smaller day to day activities it will get us into the habit and prepare us for the bigger issues and times in our lives.
And when you decide to start finding things, people or situations to be thankful for, you are well on your way to choosing Happy.
It would be incredible to hear how and when you chose happiness instead of judgement or gossip or self hurt or depression, anger or frustration. Let me know, either in the comments or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org
You deserve to be happy... so choose it! Choose it now.
