Weird heading eh?…..hopefully it got your attention.
There’s a gazillion posts out there on “Happiness” in it’s varying forms. I am not going to give you umpteen reasons how to be happy, rather my (sometimes obscure) slant on me, being “happy”…..maybe it can relate to you.
I find myself being happy most all the time. Simple enough statement.
Question…why? Answer…why not?
My “happy” starts with a smile…..Internally I light up. This then extends to my external facial expression. So it’s an inside to outside job.
What’s an internal smile?…..hard to describe however it gives me a feeling of overall ‘good’, bliss, ‘feel right’ or maybe it works the other way round, those feelings give me the ‘smile’…..anyway, it’s there. It’s the pre cursor to the external ‘evidence’…..the smile that you see.
It can come & go……I don’t always have my internal smile, so how can I switch it on?
When I look at my current state of play, there could be a lot to be unhappy about…..and I have some, not many, tormenting moments of unhappiness. They are usually only brief though, my good internal smile kicks in and sends the unhappiness packing…..How?
It’s like a good friend saving you from a fight, getting you out of a scrape…..my “happy” friend. It knows when I am in trouble with my thoughts and/or feelings.
You see, I choose to be happy, regardless of….. (I choose my friends wisely).
It’s like a fail safe mechanism…..if things turn sour my ‘fail safe’ turns this around, my choice kicks in, automatically. Choice is powerful. It’s the switch turning bad in to good, negative in to positive, stagnation in to imagination, unhappy in to happy…….
I can find no excuse for not being Happy.….because I can find many reasons to be happy and be content in the knowledge that any unhappiness will not last (due to the power of my choice). Don’t worry folks, I certainly have a lot to be grateful for & be happy about.
Does this sound fair or is it just bulldust…..what do you think?
If/when you feel unhappy…..how do you turn this around, what’s your way out? Do you have one? I’d love you to share your valuable thoughts.
be good to yourselves
