Happy

Standard

I’ve had an epiphany.

Happiness is choice.

Who cares if my friend is pissing me off. Who cares if the guy I like doesn’t feel the same way about me?

I can choose to be happy.

I’m lucky. I’ve got the most amazing family I could imagine. I have really great friends. I have a beautiful opportunity to be in school and go for my dreams.

How could I not be happy?

Sure, some things will go wrong. People will piss me off, school will frustrate me, there will be things I don’t understand. That shouldn’t rule my happiness. I should.

The little things make me happy. Thats all it takes.

I’ve fought depression. I’ve fought it and I’ve beat it. I’m not letting myself go back there. I chose to climb my way out of that hole and be happy. I refuse to fall down it again.

I don’t believe I’ll ever have to stop fighting. However, as long as I have the right outlook, I think it’ll become easier. I am lucky. I am happy.

    I love this 🙂 and i’m right there with you, happiness is a choice in so far as you really have to be open to it or want it to really be happy. People have this idea that if you aren’t blissfully happy every second of the day then you’re not happy. But, happiness is a state of mind, you can be unhappy with a situation for instance and still be Happy in the true sense of the word. It’s about finding things to be happy about, not looking for things to justify unhappiness. You simply are whatever state of mind you choose to be in.
