365 Days of Transformation One Word at a Time©
Day #11 HAPPY
Okay. I’m going to fess up. There was a point in my life when bubbly, cheerful, undeniably happy people annoyed the heck out of me.
I would growl under my breath. Barely stopping short of snarling at them.
Must be nice to always have plenty of money, drive a fancy car, have a great close-knit family, a fantastic healthy body and a heavenly wardrobe.
Oh yeah, I was a dissatisfied, discontented mess.
And wasn’t that a pretty picture?
The really sad part?
Some of those people didn’t have plenty of money. They drove old cars, had serious family and health issues, had a far from fantastic figure and sometimes looked like hell.
Those people had such a genuine aura of happiness surrounding them I couldn’t see that they didn’t lead perfect lives.
I was blinded by misery.
Wanting that kind of happiness for me, I decided to believe I deserved to be happy and rid myself of any subconscious obstructions.
It took a lot of soul searching, questioning all my beliefs, habits and traits. Questioning the definition of what made me happy and confronting a God I believed hated me. I asked the Holy Spirit to make clear to me what I needed to know.
Discovering the power of choice led me to a major transformation and the most delicious sense of freedom.
I get to chose how I feel. Even if I don’t have a million dollars. (Which I always thought was the greatest highway to happiness.)
Yes, still experience sadness, anger, frustration, and hurt. Then I get to chose how long to experience those emotions.
I encourage you to find your daily happy.
Discover what fulfills and satisfies you. The more you experience gratitude for what you have and stop comparing your life to others the more contented you become.
Let’s choose to be one of those bubbly, cheerful, undeniably happy people. Because we can, not because we want to be annoying.
Today’s affirmation was repeated upon awakening, multiple times during the day, and at night before sleeping to revolutionize my thoughts.
“I am willing to believe I deserve to be happy. I am capable of choosing to be happy every day whatever the circumstances.”
Transformation, one word, one day at a time.
Change your outlook.
Change your behavior.
When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.
