I had commented on my facebook wall about folks that aren't happy.
They live w/ stress & misery, and sadly eventually it takes a toll on them physically and mentally.
Some completely give up and turn to things they think make them happy but then when you see them, they never smile and they look on the verge of a complete breakdown.
Life is just too short to not be happy! And as my friend Andrea said, Happiness is a choice!
You can choose to be happy, no matter your circumstance or just wallow in self pity and misery.
Choosing to be happy can just be enjoying the little things. If there is nothing in your life that can bring a smile to your face from time to time then you need to change your surroundings and get happy!
I remember when Sarah Ban Breathnach was on Oprah years and years and years ago with her gratitude book and talking about that every day you should write down 5 things you are thankful for. Now think about that... if your thankful, you are happy. You can't be thankful and be miserable.
My 5 thankful things for today:
- Peppermint Saltwater Taffy
- Peppermint Starbucks Mocha
- Hubby lining my closet w/ cedar planks
- Wearing my pink sweater, instead of typical black
- The Walking dead tv show
Choose to be happy!
