That was a great topic that Brimielle wrote last week. I hope you were able to think about “Who You Are” and the great talents that you have. I know Brimielle will take you on a wonderful journey of discovery.
Well, let’s dive right into the topic for this week.
TOPIC: Choose Happiness
Happiness means the quality or state of being happy.
I’m sure you are wondering what I mean when I say “Choose Happiness”. What this means is in all aspects of life choose to be happy. It is a choice, but most importantly it’s your choice. Tangible things can be taken away from you in life, but happiness is a state of mind, therefore you can choose to live life happy.
I've met many people in my travels and have seen both sides of people, happy and unhappy. I remember meeting an older woman who took time to share some of her life stories with me, expressing the many ups and downs in her life. I was mesmerized by her spirit of “happiness”, so I asked her how does she stay in this happy place with all that she has gone through? She simply said “I chose happiness a long time ago”. I just sat there and wondered what she meant, then I finally understood that she meant no matter what circumstances or obstacles in life came her way, she would tackle them head on and live within a happy place doing it.
I share this story with you, because there are girls out there who are not living in a “happy” place. Sometimes things in life may seem unfair or you wish you were someplace else and often because of this, you even wish you were someone else. I say to all of you who may feel this way to “choose happiness”. Live your life happy, whatever appears negative turn it around into a positive. When you choose happiness in your life, it gives you the power to be in control of a situation instead of the situation controlling you.
After meeting that woman, it changed my life.........from that moment on, I chose to live my life happy.
Please write me back and tell me your story of happiness.
