I no longer need to answer that question, as I am perpetually happy. It took me many years of determined effort to know that I did not need to “try” and be happy, but rather, I just needed to commence believing that I was entitled to be, was and would continue to be. Every morning I awaken to a new day I am ecstatic!!
Each of us has a right to experience happiness and joy right now! Not a minute from now, tomorrow or next week, but at this instant in time as you read these words. Happiness is not a goal to achieve. It is a state of mind and belief. I either choose to be happy or choose not to be. Being happy does not mean I do not feel sad, angry, frustrated or any other normal response to real life maladies, but it does mean that when those episodes are concluded, I am still happy. It is my state of being happy that helps me get through the rough spots in my life.
The happier I am the more positive I will be, the better I will feel and the more successful I will be at all that I do.
My prayer for you today is that you stop seeking happiness and rather, “be” happy. You deserve it!
Hugs and blessings for a joyous day!
