Let me just start out with this: I am human. So I admit, I’m having a “bad” day. Let me list the reasons why: I cut my foot on glass so I’m limping, had an allergy attack so snot is running everywhere, exhausted from a long week so I’m sleep deprived, my video didn’t upload to YouTube so I couldn’t write my newsletter, and couldn’t get my coffee to brew right this morning. WHEW! Glad I let that off my chest.
Now, I’m going to list all the things I’m grateful for: all of you who are reading this now and who love what I have to say, my family, friends, my business, my fabulous comfortable apartment, the food I can eat everyday, my health, my crazy cat, hot water, the fact that I can breathe and am ALIVE, my day job that pays the bills… etc.
Okay I feel better already.
If you are also having a bad day or need some cheering up, let’s go on this Happiness Journey together! Below are some strategies I’m using to cheer myself up AND you if you need it:
My favorite uplifting song:
Happiness quotes I love:
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” – Denis Waitley
“Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them.” – Buddha
“A coincidence is when God performs a miracle and decides to remain anonymous.” – Author Unknown
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it”. –Groucho Marx
“If you think sunshine brings you happiness, then you haven’t danced in the rain”.–Unknown
“Is isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about”.–Dale Carnegie

And here is a beautiful video that will help you be even more grateful and happy:
So the lesson? If you’re having a bad day, you can choose to be happy. Only you ultimately have control over how you feel. So choose happiness! I know I am.
Thank you for going on this journey to happiness with me.
