Because I’m Happy…
Happiness is a choice, philosopher says
Doesn’t Pharrell’s song, Happy instantly put you in a good mood? The world just seems so much brighter when spirits are high and smiles are plenty. There are more than enough Debbie Downers on this earth so there’s no need to contribute to that dismal population. Instead, be happy! Obtaining happiness is easy; however, you must take it upon yourself to make a conscious choice to be happy. A philosopher by the name of Bertrand Russell stated way back in the 1930s that, “Happiness is not, except in very rare cases, something that drops into the mouth, like a ripe fruit…Happiness must be, for most men and women, an achievement rather than a gift of the gods, and in this achievement, effort, both inward and outward, must play a great part.”
As problems arise, emotions can quickly shift, but it is how you manage those emotions that matter. Simply, assess the situation and determine whether or not it’s worth your happiness. Surround yourself with positive individuals and good energy. You’d be surprise how easy it is to pick up another person’s bad mood. Moreover, there must be a desire and commitment to be happy. Make happiness your goal. Besides, it may even land Pharrell Williams an Oscar!
