..Happiness*


 What is your measurement of happiness? What are the instances that make you happy? Are you happy with the life that you are in now?

Many people live in constant despair. They are always sad, frustrated, and always having reasons that are keeping them from being happy. The truth is we don’t have to wait for everything to be in order or for all our problems to be solved. We don’t have to forgo happiness until we lose weight, accomplish our goals, and have a happy family or being loved by someone.


Happiness is a choice. When we wake up in the morning, we can smile and choose to be happy or grumble. It is up to us. We should not make the mistake of allowing our situations to dictate our happiness.


I have been through a lot of tough times and all of which gives me every reason to be upset and give up. But being unhappy won’t change anything.  Being grumpy, sad and depressed isn’t going to improve anything either. We might as well choose to be happy and enjoy life!

Having the tough times of my life I learned to live one day at a time; better yet make the most of every moment. It is good to have plans for our future but if we are always living in the future we may miss and enjoy the present that God wants us to.


Let us all learn to enjoy  with those people whom we love. Happiness is a decision we have to make. Not an emotion we feel. Certainly there are times in our lives when bad things happen, or things don’t turn out as we had hoped. But deciding to be happy amidst the circumstances we are going through will help us make our life’s journey easy :)

    CHOOSE- yes, we have a choice- we are NOT forced to go one way or another- we have a choice.

    1. Hello Ms.Anjuli..hahaha..I was also smiling when I was choosing the baby pix for this post..sometimes situations come into our lives unexpectedly and we are caught off guard many times which make us trapped in sadness and worrying on lot of things..but then again we can choose on how we will rightly respond..thank you for your sweet comment Ms.Anjuli *hugs hugs* ;)

  2. WONDERFUL, wise and uplifting post, Sis Sie!!! The baby pics made me SMILE! Beany is going to love this one he he ;) Being happy is a choice. I've heard people say this before and it really made me think about it! It's kind of like the glass half-full/half-empty concept of viewing life. Choosing to be happy is the optimistic choice ~ yay! Thanks for sharing this, Ms. Sie! I love it and I love the creator ;) ♥

  3. How nice to read this uplifting post, Sie! You are absolutely right. I, too, choose to make myself happy, no matter what happens. To wallow in unhappiness only makes you sick and look older!! ;)

  4. The day we put conditions to happiness, we lose our chance to be happy. I second your motion. It's always our choice to be happy or remain displeased. You have presented the very basic fact of life that we tend to forget. I admire your positive attitude. You have found a bright way to overcome adversities of life.✯
    ❀Best wishes to you❀

  7. I have to agree with happiness depends on our own choice. No one have the perfect life and all the best. Its about being happy for what we have and loving every moment of it. Be greatful for the little we have then others who have none at all. Take care Sie.

  9. A very beautiful post Sie, one of the best I can say. You described happiness in truth but with your own words that are always marked with much love.
    It's true WE decide to be happy or not. I often think of people in places where they have nothing, just or not even the minimum they need to live, where there are conflicts and corruption, and who are happy despite all the darkness around them, always with a smile on their faces.

    Thanks Sie. I will always remember your words when facing difficulties. I am the one who decide to be happy. And you are a lively example of it! So I won't forget it my dear Sie!!!xxxxxxxxxxxx. Sweet dreams.

  13. The baby pictures are too cute! They gave me many bright smiles. :)

    I liked your perspective about happiness. Happiness is one of those emotions that "confuses" me most of the time. What I mean is, I know that I can't simply wait for a great moment to be happy. Yet, it's not an emotion that comes easily to me.

    Your post has given me much to think about.

    1. I'm glad you liked it Ms.Mara..oftentimes I also get trapped on my busy hustles and bustles in life of being a single mom and usually waking up sad and finishing my day tired and exhausted but then looking at my kids they don't want a mom that's grumpy and angry most of the time so I learned to smile often..thank you for visiting Ms.Mara *hugs* ;)

    Nyways, hi sie...this post is very nicely written, diffusing a fragrance of smiling without any reason! Well, i agree with your words. To be happy, one dont need a reason! And if we are happy for some reason, that means we were compromising! :)
