This month we have been bombarded with hateful acts, instilling fear and sadness and awareness.
I use social media to highlight the good everyday, despite the chaos and conflict and negativity.
I choose love. One love. Are you with me? I am with you.
I was in a bad mood today. I was frustrated and irrational.
Yes, it’s true. Just ask my family. I have my neurotic moments. I hate these feelings as much as they do.
I thought about my post from yesterday about happiness, asking myself if I was happy and I was definitely not, at that moment. I like to practice what I share. I asked myself, “do you want to be happy?” And at that moment I wanted to be mad and did not want to release and let go. I stayed mad and quiet and wanted to feel what I was feeling, but not for long.
I received a text from my friend saying just the right words at the right time. We were supposed to meet up and I was running late.
Wanna know what her text said?
It was so simple and perfect timing.
It said, “Happiness Awaits.” How did she even know? She didn’t and that was a beautiful thing.
That’s all I needed to read to change my angry mind.
I was ready to be happy again and gave myself the rest of the car ride to get over myself.
I decided to make a change. I chose to be happy and believe it or not, was. I let go. I surrendered and enjoyed myself despite what I was feeling 10 minutes before. It was that simple and that sincere. No joke.
Our minds are so flippin’ powerful. We just have to decide what we really want and surrender. We have to be focused and determined and have to fight for what we really want, and not allow our irrational feelings win.
When we choose.
Be happy, BeLoveRs. It’s so much better than the alternative.
