I chose to be happy despite all odds, I chose to be happy even when things are ‘not – so smiling’. I make that decision even when things are hard,difficult and pressing. Things have not been very pleasant in recent times, it’s been from one struggle to another and this has been very challenging but how i manage to smile and still be happy in the face of odds is the mindset i decide to wear in all of it. Yesterday, i met my cousin online and we got chatting and he said to me that am so happy anytime he meets me, am always excited about something and then i smiled and said to him “i chose to be happy”.
We are the ones who have the power to make this decision by ourselves and this is what i tell myself on days when it seems my legs cannot carry me anymore and days when it looks so bleak and depressing but then there is this guy on radio who is multi- talented and just makes me laugh off da hook as i drive down to work and in that fifteen minutes that it takes me to get to work you see me laughing off and i do get some starry eyed looks as i drive by but i guess they should be used to seeing me like that now as my glass is always wound down.
I am not feeling so happy and then i remember he’s on radio and i just tune to him and before you know it am already laughing and happy that’s why my radio is permanently tuned to 97.7 Fm.
Look for that which makes you happy, that which livens your spirit up on days when it seems like the world is coming to an end on your head. Look on the bright side, speak to yourself powerful words that can see beyond that cloud, do that which is exciting, get out of that shell of depression to see the life, more like invite the light and life in and it will come to you.
I’ve recently been gaining extra weight that seem difficult to move on. I have sat down to think about what i can do to pull off the weight without it looking like too much of a big deal to me and then i remembered i love dancing and now i spend 20 minutes dancing to songs i like, jogging, walking as the music plays on. I have done it consistently for two weeks and i have lost 2kg (just checked it today). I am using that which i love doing to my own advantage (I’m staying in shape).
I chose to stay happy and stop bogging my life on a relationship that’s not working instead of making myself go through pain and wondering when he will call or not, if he would reply to a ping or message, and then get my hopes crushed (more like get my heart broken) when he doesn’t.
I chose to be happy and do that which pleases me to stay alive, healthy and happy. Have you made that decision for yourself today?
