happiness

-font-b-Happiness-b-font-font-b-Definition-b-font-Cute-Decor-vinyl-wall-decal            Have you ever thought about how happiness is an odd emotion? Like wow all of the sudden I feel like nothing could go wrong and today is the best day ever. And then something happens and it’s like someone took a pin and popped your balloon and all of the sudden you feel like there’s nothing to be happy about anymore and you can’t even find one reason. (That’s when Pollyanna becomes really annoying.)

But here’s the thing: we choose whether or not we want to be happy. If we depend on other people to be happy, we’re setting ourselves up for a lot of disappointments. Everyone’s human and everyone makes mistakes same as me and you. If we’re put in a situation that isn’t exactly pleasant, being grouchy about it isn’t going to make it better. In fact, it makes it a lot worse. We’re gonna have to deal with it anyways so we might as well do it with a good attitude. ;)

I’m writing this just as much for me–it’s often hard to be happy when you feel like the whole world is out to bring you down and nothing feels right. But it’s like a quote that my mom has in her bedroom, “There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for.” If you look around, there are people a lot worse off then you are, so let’s choose to be happy. ;)
