Do You Have A Choice in Being Happy?
International Day of Happiness (celebrated on Thursday, the 20th) left my foot tapping and my mind ticking. Do we really have a choice in being happy? I’ve noticed that when I experience someone being angry, sometimes taking it out on me, I often am left also feeling angry. And the same goes for happy people leaving their mark. And then what I noticed is that I often spread that energy. The ripple effect. So, I began experimenting with being happy. I didn’t experience it when I woke up this morning as I was feeling tired after a restless night of sleep. Then I remembered…..I am going to be happy. I stopped at the post office on the way to the office. The wonderful woman at the counter asked how I was doing. I answered, “Fabulous!” “Wow,” she responded. I don’t think I can top that. I asked her to try. She beamed at me and began to sing the Super-Cali-Fragil-Istic-Expi-Ali-Docious song from the Disney movie Mary Poppins. I left there smiling and so was she. I realized that being happy isn’t just a feeling. It’s a way of living life. I believe we do have a choice! Live happy!
