My Spiritual Journey: Being Happy
That’s right! Being happy is a part of my journey to a more spiritual and in tune person. Just as the thoughts that occupy our minds are chosen, happiness can be chosen just as easily. In fact, it is imperative that we emit feelings of happiness in order to manifest the positive things that we really desire in life. Most people think that they would be happy if and when certain things occur in their lives, but it doesn’t work that way. We have to be happy first, and happiness is a choice.
It is up to us whether or not we are offended by something that someone else says or does. It is up to us to choose whether or not we will allow something to ruin our day. You see, we have the power. We create the negative and positive happenings in our world. If we start choosing something different, we’ll start seeing something other than what we’ve been experiencing. In keeping a gratitude journal, I am encouraged, on a daily basis to look at the things that are going great for me already. The list is getting really long, and it just brings a smile to my face. Ding! Happiness! My hubby grabbed me in the kitchen, and kissed me. Smile! Happy! I had an amazing conversation with someone that I hadn’t spoken to in months. Smile! Happy! I stepped on the scale and saw a smaller number than I did last week. Smile! Happy!
Music is a major part of all of our lives. We are surrounded by it, and I love the fact that there is so much to choose from. Lately, I’ve been playing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” on repeat. You cannot listen to this song and stay in a bad mood. Have you seen the 24-hour music video that he made for it??? I’m only on 2AM, but I’m loving it, and I love the song so much that I can listen to it over and over. Why not have a visual to accompany the repeats? Below, I’ve included a video of some of the things that make me happy. Check it out and let me know what you think.
What makes you happy?
