The Choice Is Ours



"Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things."

"This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love: the more they give, the more they possess." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

I was talking to a woman yesterday that asked me how I was doing?  I said 'Awesome' with conviction; I am doing awesome and I'm very happy.  Life is great and each day is a gift.  She thanked me for being so positive as she found it so hard to be that way.

I told her happiness is a choice each and everyday. I explained that I understood where she was coming from but that the whole truth was that if she really wanted to be happy she could be.  Sometimes we stay with our sad stories because we don't want to do the work.  We are getting something from those sad stories.  I know this because I used to do this, I was negative, depressed and sad all the time.  I had a poor me attitude and I felt like the world was against me.  Guess what, that's what I attracted!   I had to consciously decide that I wanted better, I wanted to attract happiness and love and I do now.

That's why I gave up blogging for a couple of days last month; if I cannot be positive and uplifting, I will not be there to bring people down.  I took the time to really think, that is when I got inspired and now I have my plan;). I have to say it's moving a long at a good pace.

I made the choice to be happy no matter what and I realized how little I had be valuing myself.  Really???   The truth is that when we don't value ourselves, no one else can.  I wonder where I ever thought it was okay to under value myself.  God/universe knows how wonderful we are and He's waiting for us to see this as well.

He wants us to feel wonderful, happy  and excited so that we can see the many amazing blessings in our lives.  When we can see these, we can share them and this will help us to be even happier.  Don't you want to be happier?  I do, I want to be exuberantly happy.

I want to uplift and be a joy to the people in my life.

  3. I am so happy you are back to your old self. I also loved that part "Happiness is a choice" as it's so true, I've learnt that myself and since then my choice is to be happy, even if I can't manage to 100% of my time.

    Thanks for another inspirational post, dear Launna.

    Kisses
