YOUR LIFE A-Z :HAPPY
What is happy to you? What are you really saying when you say I just want to be happy? As I have said, “Happiness is not an illusion, but neither is it a destination.” I see it as a space within you. The dictionary defines contentment as a place of happiness and satisfaction. Being HAPPY is a space or place wherethere is a reservoir of positive energy, decorated with fond memories, and an invitation to sit and enjoy the present moment, using all of your senses of smell, taste, touch, hear, and feel. Experiencing the moment is a space within you as the moment passed already, so it is a pause button of HAPPY. HAPPY space is a choice. We can choose to focus on bad memories, ugly situations, and things in the past that were not fair. Or we can choose to be anxious and worry about every possible thing that can go wrong in the future or we can place the present moment on “pause,” and allow ourselves to switch channels in our head and enjoy the creation of HAPPY. If we did this as often as we check our Facebook every day imagine how lush, lovely, and exhilarating our HAPPY space could become. We would enjoy going there to experience the joy of being alive, as well as the moment of sweet contentment in the facts. These are the facts: If you are reading this you are alive, be grateful. If you are grateful you will count your blessings and if you count your blessings you will enter your HAPPY space. Yep…that is fact.
