I have come to the conclusion that to be healthy mind, body and soul, I must choose to be. You surely have heard the old sayings ‘mind over matter’ or don’t worry be happy’. They are true words of wisdom, you see we have a choice, “we can be happy or miserable, either way it takes a lot of work.” Wasting energy on being unhappy will in turn take that much more to bounce back.
“Let it go for a brighter perspective. Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.” Author Unknown
I realize there are things we need to deal with in order to heal but enough is enough. When something wants to remind you of your past brokenness put the brakes on and remind yourself that you are whole and healed once and for all. No more sliding back into that mess. No more distractions, they are all there simply to stall you in your tracks so that you won’t proceed and progress. Now pick up your momentum and soar.
Do you not agree that it’s time. Smile, hold your head up high and walk in the knowing that you are more than a conqueror. Going forward we march to the beat of a different rhythm. Always cheerful, encouraging, building yourself up with words of life. Meditation, inspirational quotes, affirmations, positive encouragement all help to bring you towards happiness.
Do you feel happy or sad? You are a prisoner of your past and pain if you entertain those sad thoughts. Feelings are fickle don’t you think? Happiness depends on circumstances – I know – that is the reason we need to build ourselves up. Sadness be gone! Joy comes from within…as you will your happiness ~ you cannot help but be joy -“full”! At least be willing to be willing. I understand that life happens but you know what? Pick yourself up…you are so worth it. You deserve to be free from this. Visualize you are happy and full of joy! Visualize a life of meaning, the life you dream of. Take a moment to ponder on self-improvement. Recognizing positive action for a positive now and future is the run-way to being happy.
Are you showing your highest expression of joy. Be a person of excellence. Share your story but don’t allow it to steal your joy. Ask yourself why you are telling it, is it to let someone know they can overcome or is it to run on the wheel of self-pity like a hamster going round and round, getting nowhere.
Have trust in your journey. Be well and do this simply for the health of it. Blessings! images-1
