You’re happy, aren’t you?

Are you happy? I mean, really, truly, ‘skipping and smiling through life’ happy?

Why not?

Is it because you still need to lose the last 5/10/15 pounds or more? Is it because you don’t have the energy to get through your busy days anymore AND find the time to “exercise”? Give me a break.

The reason you are not truly happy most of the time is simply because you “choose” to not be happy. We all have struggles in life. Some of us more than others, I’m well aware. But…you can still find something to be happy about. Can’t you?

Think about this question for a moment, “what three things am I most thankful for today?” Don’t just answer the typical “politically correct” responses. Actually sit for a moment, think about your life and answer what makes you smile. Just smile for no reason other than feeling “happy”.

I know mine. The first is my family. Now, I know this may sound like a politically correct response…and in some way, it probably is. However, when I am away and think about something they have done or said, I smile. I enjoy talking about them. You probably do too.

Okay, my second, is my life. Too broad? I can’t narrow it down much more than that , but I will explain it. I wake up most mornings with a full “to-do” list and start on it as soon as possible. One of my major tasks, and don’t roll your eyes at me, young person!- is my workout of the day. I have simply become addicted to exercise and how I feel after it’s over. I say it all the time, my favorite part of working out is when it’s over. And that feeling is, priceless. Then I do all the tasks of the day and when it’s all been said and done…I actually tell myself, aloud, “I love my life!” My personal opinion is the endorphins in my body create such a “high” feeling that I can’t contain myself. Oh, I saw that! You just rolled your eyes at me!

My final choice would have to be my life’s devotion. Call it what you want, God, religion, Higher Power, I really don’t care. I feel that life cannot be equal in any meaning without it. When you believe in something, it drives you each day. It helps you make difficult choices and decisions in life. It gives you meaning.

My three choices are not in any numerical number from highest to lowest or level of importance; instead they are all “intertwined” as one enormous, happy, feeling.

Do you love your life? If not, what can you do about it? Make some changes. Change your priorities. Change your life. You only get one…you may as well make it worth your while. Feel happy. Love and be loved in return. Let me know what your three favorite things in your life are by posting below. If not quite sure, let me know what you can do to “shake” things up so you can feel more satisfied and “happy”.

Here’s to you…here’s to a great and happy life. I look forward to reading your response!
