Are you allowing somebody or something outside yourself to control whether you are happy or not? We are each responsible for our happiness however at times it seems, that it can be something outside of ourselves that can be making us unhappy. The truth is we can always choose to be happy no matter what is happening to us on the external.
I can see in my own life how I respond to different situations and people with unhappiness because the situation is not the way I would like it to be or the people are not the way I would like them to be. I would love to embrace the belief that I can be happy no matter what is happening in my life.
By blaming things and people outside of ourselves for how we are feeling, we are ultimately allowing these things to control our happiness. We always have a choice to be happy in every moment. At times I forget and I go into the mode of blaming my boss, my job, the people around me, the weather because I am unhappy.
So how can we start taking ownership of our happiness. The first step is awareness. Being aware that it is our thoughts about the situation or the person which are creating the feelings of unhappiness in ourselves. At times we start believing the story going on in our heads that this is the truth. However 99.99% of truth is relative. It is our thoughts which are creating the story. Imagine creating a story which is creating a life of happiness.
If you had a choice would you choose to believe a story which is the truth or which is a lie?
If you had a choice would you choose to believe a story which made you happy or unhappy?
