Be, Have, and Live In Happiness

55There will always be times throughout our lives when we experience periods of unhappiness, of feeling down in the dumps.  But regardless of how we are feeling, it is our choice as to whether or not we want to stay there or move ourselves back to a better feeling place. 

There is nothing or no one who can make you feel anything ~ you are the only one who is in control of how you feel.  Yes, I know, we like to blame others for how we feel and we like to blame the world for how our life is playing out, but in reality and in truth, your life and your feelings are your choice.

59When feeling unhappy we have a tendency to focus on how we are currently feeling which in turn creates more feelings of unhappiness.  And before you know it, you are suffering from sadness and depression. So why not turn yourself toward the people, places and things that bring you happiness.  Turn yourself toward the present moment, leaving all past and future thoughts behind.  Being in the present moment is full of positive energy, abundance, well-being, unconditional love, peace, joy and true happiness.  It is a natural part of who you really are and you are never without it.

57Trust me, I know all too well how hard it can be to get up, get out, and get motivated when you feel like a slug.  But once you do, your entire body of energy will change and you will be back in tune with your Inner Life before you know it.  Your Inner Life does not know unhappiness.  It does not know the past, future, stress, worry, anxiety, depression, dis-ease or lack.  It is when we live outside ourselves, in our outer lives, that we suffer and live unhappy lives.  The more consistently you live within your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you are, the more in tune you will be and the more your life will be filled with joy and happiness! 

56So, instead of giving into the negativity of unhappiness, why not give into the positivity of joy and happiness!?!  No matter what is going on you can still be, have and live in happiness !!!

“If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.”  – Cindy Ortiz

Feeling Good Leads to Positive Living

43I never believed it either – that something as simple as choosing to feel good no matter what would change my life, but it did and it still does.  The more I choose to feel good, the more abundance flows into my life, and the more my life turns into positive living.  

Positive living is not just about feeling good or having a positive attitude, it’s about creating a positive life no matter what comes your way.  It’s about living in and through your Inner Life instead of your outer life.  It’s about making positive choices and decisions that will enhance your life physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s about choosing to see, feel and hear positivity in and around you, even if life begins to feel a little stale.

42If you are living a life that is less than positive, hopefully there will come a day, sooner than later, when where you are and how you feel is no longer acceptable to YOU. When you realize life is not about lack or heartache but about love, joy, peace, well-being, and happiness. This will be the turning point and the point of no return.  Once you get the sweet taste of positive living, there will be no going back.  

Choosing to feel good should be the most important part of your life.  Not only does it keep you in tune with your Inner Life, the greater and most powerful part of who you truly are, but it guides you right into positive living and a life filled with abundance.  How can you not live a positive life when you choose to feel good?  

44The power in positive living is that it will create the life you want.  It will bring you life experiences that will take your breath away, leaving you wondering whether or not you are dreaming. It will enlighten you, brighten you, and create a life full of goodness and well-being.  Feeling good and positive living go hand-in-hand; you can’t have one without the other, so isn’t it time you jumped on the feel good band wagon and get to some positive living?  Or are you just going to sit there and continue drowning in your own unhappiness ~ it’s your choice, it’s your life.

To Feel Good Is the Best Option

22If feeling good is the best option, then why do so many people choose not to feel good?  Why do so many people do the things, eat the things, or say the things that leave them feeling less than good?  I have pondered this for many, many years because like you, I have not always chosen the “feel good” path in life.  In fact, there were times when I chose to do things that I knew without a shadow of a doubt would make me feel absolutely miserable and yet on I went with it!  

I believe what happens is that we sink to the point of losing our faith in having the power to change how we feel and thus change how our lives play out.  For most, it’s a slow ride to the bottom.  A ride you may not even realize is taking you down until you are so far down it’s hard to get up.  It’s kind of like one day you wake up and get slapped in the face with your life. The realization of where you are hits you so hard it makes your stomach churn.  And the worst part, you have no idea how you got to be where you are.  Where did all those days, months, or years go?

23The good news….there is no need to worry or stress out about where you are OR how you got there.  There is ALWAYS a way out and UP. All you have to do is get back to feeling good.  No matter what it takes or how hard it may seem at the time, make the solid choice to feel good now.  Just for now, think a thought or do a thing – something – anything – that you know will make you feel good.  Stop trying to convince yourself that there is nothing at this point in your life that is going to make you feel good short of winning the lottery.  You always have a field of good feeling stuff to choose from.  It is up to you as to how bad you want it.  And if you are thinking that feeling good is not going to change your life or take care of your problems, you couldn’t be more wrong.  Feeling good, no matter what, is the key to your dreams and desires.  It is the key to getting back in tune with your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you truly are.  Feeling good is your golden ticket out and up of where you don’t want to be and in and around where you do want to be.  

668I never believed it either – that something as simple as choosing to feel good no matter what would change my life, but it did and it still does.  The more I choose to feel good, the more abundance flows into my life.  And yes, I too was stuck and woke up one day wondering how the heck I got to where I was.  At first it was hard to move out of the sludge, but the more I focused on how I wanted to feel versus how I was feeling the easier it became.  Before I knew it, I was waking up wondering how in the heck I ever chose to feel anything less than good, less than happy, less than joy, less than appreciative!  

It is your life and your choice.  If you truly want things to change for the better, there is nothing or no one that will stop you.  Just remember you have the power to create the life you want.  Be still and listen to your heart, for it knows nothing but the truth and the way.  Choose to feel good no matter what and watch what happens.  To feel good is the best option if you want out and up!

“If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.”
