Happiness is a daily choice

on February 13, 2015

This is the ‘thought for the day’ from Inner Space Oxford, and I think it’s lovely.

Everyday we have a choice – we can be grumpy, miserable, short tempered …. or happy.  And when we choose happiness, the world just seems a different place.  Somehow we notice the positives rather than the negatives  What do I mean by that …… some examples:

  • the warmth of the sun shining through the window rather than the difficulty seeing my computer screen
  • the joy of my cats playing in the garden rather than worrying about the 8 dirty feet that will soon be coming through the cat-flap
  • the opportunity to ‘just be’ for a moment rather than getting annoyed at the queue in the supermarket

The situation is still the same, it’s just our perception that we change .. and when we do so, we take away stress and bring a bit of sunshine not only to our own lives, but quite possibly to those around us.

  1. I totally agree. It would be worthwhile to remind ourselves everytime about this choice we have. After a few deliberate attempts, we will get used to seeing the flip side of things.. 🙂
