Choosing Happiness – Step One

Step One is Believe Happiness is a Choice
For me, this was a hard one at first. I thought that people were either unhappy or happy (and I was one of the unhappy ones). I used to blame this on all kinds of external factors – experiences, parents, relationships – but I never really stopped to think that I could choose to be happy. Yes this isn’t always easy (in fact, for me, it can be very, very hard sometimes), but it is always, always an option. Teaching myself to believe that happiness is a choice has been one of the greatest things I have ever done for myself.
Now when I find myself in a bad situation, I know that it’s up to me to find the good, to be happy regardless of what’s happening around me. I am no longer pointing fingers, placing blame. I realise that everything happens how it happens and it’s up to me to choose how I want to feel about it. I am in control of my happiness level and no one can take that away from me.

One thought on “Choosing Happiness – Step One

  1. I love this and I completely agree! Believing it was a choice was the most difficult for me as well! I always thought because bad things happened to or around me that I couldn’t be happy. It’s amazing how much better one feels once they believe that they are in control of their own happiness 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Great post!
