Is it time to be happy?

Is it time to be happy? Is it time to be happy?

I love this message, I find that it is so true.

You can never have a happy ending at the end of an unhappy journey; it just doesn’t work out that way. The way you’re feeling, along the way, is the way you’re continuing to pre-pave your journey, and it’s the way it’s going to continue to turn out until you do something about the way you are feeling.
—Abraham

I remember times in my life where I would tell myself…

I just want to be happy!!!

But then I wouldn’t do anything different…

there was no change…

no movement…

no happiness.

I would blame it on circumstances…

on people…

on bad energy…

on addiction…

I just didn’t know how to take responsibility for my life and my unhappiness. And then, one day, a light bulb went off… If I want to be happy, I am going to have to do it myself.

 

I can’t wait for circumstances to change to make me happy… I need to change the circumstances, or at least my way of seeing them…

 

I can’t wait for people to change… for someone else to behave in a way that will make me happy…

 

I can’t wait for the bad energy to just go away as I am likely a part of it…

 

And, I can’t wait for my addiction to addicts to be healed…

 

I needed to do something, in that moment… to be happy!

 

Not tomorrow, not next week… not next year… right now…

 

So, I did… One baby step at a time.

 

I looked for the joy, I turned up the music, I used affirmations and faked it til I made it… and one day, I felt a little tinge of happiness… that was the start…

 

What are you willing to do today to bring a bit of happiness into your life?
