One reads all these clever quotes about being happy, how to be happy, and especially, making the decision every day to be happy, etc.
Will somebody, somewhere, please tell me how?
If you wake up crabby – you didn’t sleep well because of problems, you’ve got a headache, your partner snored to high heaven – how on earth do you just ‘decide’ : ‘I’m going to be happy today!’ (with a smile and a la-la-la-la-laaaaa…)
I need a step-by-step explanation, or a drawing, because this one I cannot work out on my own.
Happiness is something, like love, that many poets and song writers have written about, because that is probably the ONE thing in life that everybody on the face of this earth, wants.
A lot of people equate happiness with love. Others feel that lots of money leads to happiness. Most people have their own definition of happiness. The Oxford English Dictionary says (hold your breath) happiness – being happy. Wow – profound… So happy accord to same, is ‘feeling or showing pleasure.‘ Right.
Which does not help me one little bit. If I’m feeling out of sorts, and I do not feel like smiling and even talking to people, how do I decide to be happy? Feeling grateful is one thing – I can wake up in a bad mood and still be grateful for a new day – I will just not expect too much of it. I can be grateful for my health and food on the table, which, by the way, I always am, but still not feel happy.
Is it just me? Was I born a grouch (which I do not consider myself to be at all, I am just not always happy) or difficult to please? You can tell me, I can take it! It might not make me happy to hear negative feedback, but I can handle it… 😉
So, if somebody out there can solve this conundrum for me, I’ll be forever grateful!
Until next time fellow bloggers, stay safe! 🙂
