Day 3 of 31 Days to Get A Lil’ U.G.L.I.
For a lot of us, happiness seems to come to us externally, but in actuality happiness is an INTERNAL feeling. We make the choice, whether we know it or not, to be and to feel happy. It is not up to our significant others, managers, children, BFFs, or any other person/thing/place to make us feel happy. It is not their job to do so. It is OURS and ours alone.
To give an example: your boyfriend brings you a dozen red roses home, runs your bubble bath, and cooks your favorite meal…BUT, you had a horrible day at work. You come home grumpy and there is nothing that he can do to make that beautiful smile of yours come back. Ordinarily, it would make you feel “happy,” but today, you mood just isn’t going to allow any ounce of happiness to exist. Now why is it on any other day the same scenario would make you break out in giggles, but today you’re still grumpy?
I will tell you…it is because happiness is INTERNAL! What you are feeling now is the feeling of being pissed off and maybe rightfully so. BUT the point I am trying to make is that if you CHOOSE your bad day at work to override the beautiful evening that your Man has prepared for you…that is the choice you have made. Get it?
Today, remind yourself that although not every day will be rainbows and butterflies, you make the decision to BE Happy (in my Pharrell voice) because it is YOUR choice to do so or not.
