Do you own your happiness? Are u in charge of your feelings? Or do you let others decide if you are happy or not?
I was contemplating over this idea one day as I sat in my car waiting to pick up my kids. I realized I could enjoy my little ( notice the word "little") moment of quiet or I could dread these moments of waiting. I had to make a choice if I was going to feel content in these small moments or actually get annoyed and frustrated sitting and waiting.
I rolled down my windows to soak up the warm rays of the sun, turned on my music and I felt happy. I'm sure the vitamin D helped some too. So many daily tasks burden our happy hormones!
Don't let others problems or complaints sit on your shoulders. Every person has his/her own issues. Be in control of situations. If your spouse or girlfriend/ boyfriend is really having a tough day- lighten the mood. Dance to some music in the shower. Show some happiness in the thick of stress.
I had to conquer and destroy my negative emotions. Fortunately I'm an optimist and a big supporter of positive thinking. I'm hoping my words are meant to motivate and encourage you to be happy. Pass along a smile today or even a compliment to a stranger. Your good feelings will spread like wildfire!
