I used to say, happiness is a choice. And it is really, but to be more specific the choice we make is built within our perspective. It is the preponderance of my thoughts and the meaning that I give them that allow me to feel all that I do in this life. I am set up in this life to guide my own emotions and feelings. Nobody can make me feel anything without my consent. It just isn’t possible. I am the one and only creator of my feeling life.
In essence, I become what I align myself with. If my truth is derogatory about myself, or if I am thinking of myself in the negative, then I become this in that moment and I don’t feel good. But if I change how I see something, then that something that I am focused on will change in my world of meaning. And thus it can now empower me and uplift me. It is always up to me to find new ways to see negative things. It is always up to me find my good feelings.
What I feel is a product of a message that I am telling myself about me. When those messages have criticism built in them or if I am simply talking myself down in any way I will feel challenged, low and not happy. But if I talk positively to myself about my experiences, then I can feel encouraged, uplifted and wonderful. In these moments I am curating and cultivating my good feelings and my happy life.
I have such great power to control how I feel and what experiences I will have in this life. It is always up to me. I will choose joy. I will choose love. I will choose understanding. And I will choose goodness, always. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are each one of you!
