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 :)
