Happiness is a Choice
Despite what we may have been taught, happiness is as simple as just choosing to be happy. When we truly realize this—that happiness is a choice—we instantly empower ourselves in any situation, whether it’s a relationship, job, or pattern of thinking that’s been creating judgments, worry, doubt, fear, or confusion. The moment we choose to perceive things differently by choosing a loving perception of ourselves, others, and our circumstances, we not only strengthen our capacity to feel happy—but we also open ourselves up to limitless possibilities. This is really good news. It means we don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect, nor do we have to control anything outside of ourselves in order to feel a certain way. Becoming aware of this truth is a total game-changer because it means we can choose happiness at this moment.
Happiness is a Movement
When you claim responsibility for your own happiness, you also become a catalyst for positive change in the lives of others. That’s what the happiness movement is all about. Imagine a world filled with optimism and compassion. It’s possible if we do it together. Here at ShareHappinessNow, we believe that at the very core of who we are and at the very heart of why we exist, we are meant to be happy. We function better, do better, perform better, are kinder, and give more when we are happy. We operate less productively, less efficiently, less decently when unhappy.
A life without happiness is similar to a house without a family. A house was meant to house people. Likewise, we were meant to be happy. That’s what makes an existence a life. Backed by science, research, and common sense we know that living a purposeful life is what really matters. Join the happiness movement today!
