In my post ‘Get Over It‘, I began with the following –
I really want to be happy!
In today’s post, I begin with the following –
I am happy, I am becoming happier, I am choosing happiness!
From my previous mentioned post, a fellow blogger Lynne from LYNNE’S RECIPE TRAILS responded with the following comment –
Oh Terry, this is such a deep and complex subject, and very real. For me, I am a firm believer of Choice. The way we choose to conduct our life, each and every day, is all about the choice we make. Each moment of our life is a choice, which too can bring happiness or unhappiness to ourselves, the people around us and our loved ones. But, in saying that, we all are human, we all are going to ‘have those days’. The good thing is, to recognize those ‘off’ days or moments and as you say ‘get over it’. Wishing you a happy weekend.
I appreciate all the comments and Lynne’s comment is no exception. Her comment resonated with me and I literally took it to heart – I am choosing happiness! Throughout my day when I am feeling stress, I think about Lynne’s words – I choose happiness! When I am in a bad mood, I think about I can choose happiness. I am trying to use this to help myself to be a better person each and every day.
Lynne also wrote the following comment on my post ‘Struggling is part of the process’ –
I hear what you are saying…and it is difficult. For me sometimes, it feels as though I am not fully happy, and I wonder why, as I should be… almost as though I am not fully fulfilled, or something, but then I tell myself, this is life, and it is up to me to make the most of it, so I keep on trying, I think the key is to keep on trying.
Again I appreciate Lynne’s comments. As you have come to know more about me, I have come to know more about you. There are many of us in this world who relate to each other’s lives because of similar feelings, thinking, events and experiences. There are many of you I have come to know and appreciate your understanding, your support, your comments and especially your friendship.
Lynne, you didn’t realize until now, what an impact you have on me and my life. Your comments make a difference and for this I am grateful and want to extend my warmest thank you.
