I Choose To be Happy!

Sometimes the best feeling is just to breathe and smile, it can change our outlook on life. I like to reflect on my life and all the good and bad things in it on a regular basis and more times than once I realize that even if I thought someone to be the worst person in my life for some time, they did teach me something! Somewhere deep down I know that it is because of them that I am a stronger person now. It’s not the same na├»ve ‘me’ who trusts everyone and laughs and smiles genuinely with everyone with a warm looking face.

At the same time, I think of people I misunderstood, people I thought were hurting me, but were actually always there for me and still are. I take time out and silently say a prayer for them- thanking them for having faith in me and for making me have some hope in humanity.

I can say today that I am a happy person and I am happy because I choose to be happy. There were tough times but I have learnt from them and picked the best I could from it and moved on. I quote:

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance.
The wise grows it under his feet.
- James Openheim

here is what i feel when i read your post- "its good........... as always i love the way u write

it is so strange to see that a person is sad at one point and hates the whole world........ and then on one fine day the very same person is happy!!!!
but yet it is amazin to know that its we who control this emotion..... we can always choose whether we want sadness or happiness in our lives!!!!!

"if you ever find happiness by hunting for it, you will find it, as the old woman did her lost spectacles, safe on her own nose all the time."
