That may be a surprise, a new thought, or the something you most need to be reminded of. Namely, that how you feel is a choice. How you feel in any given moment, on a daily basis, is what makes up how happy your life is, and it is your choice.
Too many people think that feelings are something that just happen to them, like the weather just happens; outside their control.
Some people will argue that being happy in the face of unpleasant situations is fooling oneself. True, and that’s not what’s being suggested here at all.
It would truly be a shame to wait until your deathbed to realize that the amount of happiness you allowed yourself to have through the course of your life was mostly a matter of choice.
Sure, exceptions abound. We’re not talking about experiencing the death of a loved one or any other of life’s real tragedies. They happen, but they are incidents, not the whole of life. We’re talking about choosing to live with an attitude of appreciation for what one has, and choosing to have the feelings you want, instead of the ones you’ve been programmed to have by society, family, media, politicians and the like.
We can help with that.
