This Will Make You Happy

November 12, 2008 by Maxi


You wake up in the morning, take a quick shower, slip into the clothes of the day, rush through the make-up routine (or not) and hurry to the kitchen. Some of you have to eat, even if it’s just a piece of a toast, for others it’s only a cup of coffee or tea. Then you’re out the door.

For the most part, it doesn’t cross your mind if you’re happy or not. Life is so busy, taken up with work, shopping, bills, chores, errands, etc. Of course you’re happy. Isn’t everyone?

No. We aren’t talking “clinical depression” here, that is a medical condition. Not speaking of having “the blues” once in a while either … but going through life feeling gloomy and down. Can’t seem to feel good about things no matter what. You try to cover it up but it’s always there inside. Even if you manage to have fun for a while, the sadness returns.

Bad things happened to me when I was young; there were times in my life when I thought I would always be unhappy. Bet some of you feel exactly the same way. I don’t recall how it happened or when it happened, but there came a time when I realized that enjoying life is up to me. It didn’t come easy, took a little practice actually.

Life is an ongoing process of making choices; every day we wake up, place our legs over the edge of the bed and make the choice to be happy or sad.

This will make you happy … YOU.

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
