Choose Happiness!

 For every minute you are angry or irritated, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.
 Be happy. Be yourself. 

 If others don’t like it, then let them be. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody. If you have the courage to admit when you’re scared, the ability to laugh even as you cry, the nerve to speak up, the confidence to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it’s offered, then you have everything you need to get yourself to a happier state of mind. Begin today by taking responsibility for your own contentment. 

 Here are ten ways to choose happiness: 

1.  Choose to be the best YOU can be.
 * Give it your all in everything you do, commit to your goals
 and don’t compare yourself to anyone else. 

2. Choose to be around the right people. 
* Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like minded.
 Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you 
– people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. 

3. Choose to focus on what you have, not on what you haven’t.
 * When you appreciate what you have, what you have appreciates in value.
 Being grateful for the goodness that is already evident in your life 
 will bring you a deeper sense of happiness. 

4. Choose to smile more often.
 – A smile is a choice, not a miracle. Don’t wait for people to smile. Show them how. 
 A genuine smile makes you and everyone around you feel better.

5. Choose to take care of your body.
* Taking care of your body is crucial to being the happiest person you can be.
 If you don’t have your physical energy in good shape, then your mental, emotional energy
 and your spiritual energy (your purpose) will all be negatively affected. 

6. Choose honesty.
* Start being honest with yourself and everyone else.
 Don’t cheat. Be faithful. Be kind. Do the right thing!
 It is a less complicated way to live. 

7. Choose to help others when you’re able.
* Care about people. In life, you get what you put in. 
When you make a positive impact in someone else’s life,
 you also make a positive impact in your own life. 

8. Choose a good attitude.
* What often screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be. And the reason so many of us give up is because we tend to look at how far we still have to go, instead of how far we have come. Remember, life is a journey, not a destination.

9. Choose to let go when you know you should.
* Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself.
 Love is worth fighting for, but you can’t be the only one fighting.
 People need to fight for you too. 

10. Choose to embrace the next step in your life.
* You can hold on to the past, or you can create your own happiness today.
 Never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart. 
 Every day is a new beginning and a new ending. 

And remember... Never let someone’s opinion become your reality. 
 Never sacrifice who you are because someone else has a problem with it.
 You are the only one who can create your happiness. 
Love who you are inside and out. 

The choice is yours. Choose happiness.
