Happiness is a choice that is available to us in each moment. Life happens to every one of us. We all encounter good circumstances and unfavorable circumstances from time to time. In each situation we encounter, we have the ability to choose our thoughts regarding it as well as how we react to it.
Happiness is always an option. If we choose to focus on the negative in a situation, our time will be spent in misery, feeling sorry for ourselves as we view ourselves as a victim. The other option is to choose happiness by looking for the good and finding something to be grateful for. Even unfavorable situations are ultimately a gift. In those situations, you have the option to choose happiness by looking for the lesson and being grateful that the circumstance is helping to build your character.
Your happiness is ultimately in your hands. It is available to you in any moment that you decide to choose it. Decide to make happiness your way of life.
