The idea that happiness is some sort of external force, coming and going on it’s own is completely overrated. Your happiness is completely within your hands. So take control.
The first step towards taking control all comes down to a choice. You can choose your outlook. Choose to smile, choose to not smile. You can choose to be happy. Choose to put aside whatever petty issue is causing your unrest. Choose to take the high road.
So often I hear the complaint, ‘I had no choice’. Well you’re wrong. You had a choice from the moment you opened your eyes this morning. You chose what you wanted to wear, what you wanted to eat for breakfast and what music to listen to on the drive to work. If you think your ability to choose stops when it comes to your own happiness, you must be kidding yourself.
So take control and choose happiness.
