Most folks, when asked, will tell you that they want to be happy.
Often times, though, our actions give a different answer. It is as if we become miserable out of habit and don’t even notice that the way we act, speak, and even live all help create an environment opposite of the one we want to live in.
There comes a time where you’ve got to say enough is enough. Stand up to yourself. Become your own inner drill sergeant. Hold yourself to a higher standard.
If you want to be happy you have to think happy, tell yourself you’re happy, listen to music that makes you happy, constantly be on the lookout for even the tiniest moments of joy and grab onto them as they appear!
Don’t just “wish” to be happy and then spend your days digging puddles of despair.
Look at all the people around you clinging to their misery – you’ve got to decide to hold just as tightly to your happiness.
Decide today to live in hope.
Declare that you are happy and build up from there.
Life is a journey no matter which path you take.
