HAPPINESS is a skill within your control. Like any skill, the more you practice, the easier it becomes. Focusing on the good in your life works the same way. Whatever your experience in any given moment, there are always choices you can make that either increase (or decrease) your level of happiness – by consciously changing how you habitually respond to the events that occur in your life. Happy people don’t blame others, they take responsibility for their feelings and consistently make choices that lean towards happiness.
Surround yourself with positive people. Research consistently shows that our social support network is a great predictor of our happiness. Leave complainers and critical and judgemental “friends” behind.
How your view yourself and your world are conscious choices and habits. The lens you choose to view everything through determines how you will interpret what is happening. And from your interpretation you act. And all of this becomes your life.*
