Don’t Wait!

I am happy being happy.
I give myself the feeling I want.
I practice being truly happy until I AM.
I choose the emotional state I experience.

Don’t Wait To Be Happy!

Some people plan on being happy later.
Some people plan on being happy when…
Some people will never be happy because…..
Some people don’t want to be happy.

Happiness is a function of forgiveness.
When we are critical of anything or anyone, we are not at peace.
When we always want more or less, we cannot be satisfied.
When we think about what we wish could be, how can we be truly happy?

Can we be happy with exactly where we are?
Can we be content with exactly what we have?
Are we willing to appreciate what is are doing?
Are you valuing yourself as you are?

Many people believe we must be in a state of unhappiness to achieve.
Others believe that it is our nature to desire something more or different.
But how about allowing your happiness to inspire and renew you.
Look at what encourages you to be your best.

Ingest the best and forget and forgive the rest.
Be happy and you will be happy doing it.
Do it and you will be happy being it.
Happiness is the motivation to do the Good we do.

I am happy with my life, my home and my self.
I am happy writing this loving reminder for you.
I am happy taking a 24 hour sabbatical to the coast.
I am happy being happy with myself and all that is.

Does this happiness inspire me to love more and give more?
Happiness fuels me.
Happiness is like a Geiger counter and shows me what to do next.
Happiness is contagious and encourages others to choose happiness too.

Experiment with your choice to be happy.
Notice that you can choose happiness.
Notice how you choose to be unhappy.
Notice which feels better for you.

You can have an attitude of happiness and feel so much better.
Notice that your natural state is happiness. (unless you have learned the habit of unhappiness.)
Notice that life works better when you are happy.
Notice and choose again for what you really want.

Loving you,
