Happiness is a choice…… Choose wisely! 

So it has been quite some time since I have posted anything. And in that time I have retreated to do even more soul searching for myself. Sometimes you just need to hide out a a little in your own space to figure out What your soul needs to heal. The main lesson that I feel like the universe has been trying to teach me is that your own happiness is a conscious choice you make every single day. 

Have you ever had one of those mornings where you wake up and the first thing you think to yourself is negative? I know personally I am a culprit of this all the time. And it affects how my entire day goes! Just one simple thought can change everything. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is a real thing. And in the last couple of months I’ve made myself think one happy thing in the mornings. This small change has affected my life greatly. But in all the right ways. I challenge you to try it too. 

My other suggestion to you is to find some way to meditate. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to do it in the traditional sense of the word. Find some activity that allows you to zone out from the world for a few minutes and get lost in your own thoughts. I use running as my time to do this, but there are many different things that could work. Even just heading out to a coffee shop to people watch. We never get alone time anymore. Especially with how extremely connected our smart devices keep us these days. So that’s the main key to a successful get away session, leave your phone behind! This personal time to listen to your soul everyday makes you that much more in tune with what you need on a spiritual level and can make all the difference. 

The power Of thought is real. And it can’t be ignored. Training my brain to be happy and think positively is changing my life. I don’t allow my happiness to be determined by outside forces anymore. I don’t give people the power to control my happiness either. If you start to take a small amount of your time to focus truly on making these changes daily, you can begin to find your true happiness too. It is still a work in progress and I am certainly not perfect myself, but I felt I needed to share just what has been going on in my brain 💜💓
