Happiness is really a choice. We are making choices about how we are going to feel all day long, every day.
Now that I am aware that my thoughts and beliefs are what create my feelings, I have more control over myself and my life. I always believed that my feelings of distress, fear, depression, etc. just happened to me and I had no control over them. I also believed that joy, love, and happiness just happened when things were going the way I wanted them to.
I believed if things didn’t go my way, it was cause for unhappiness because “Maybe if I’m not unhappy about this, I didn’t want it enough.” I had to be really unhappy to show how much I had wanted something that didn’t come about.
Reality is, we can choose happiness no matter what is going on around us. Then we have more energy left to go for what we want, instead of wasting it on anxiety, worry, fear, etc.
