Allowing Happiness

T’s comment on yesterday’s post really got me thinking. Specifically this part: “Its ok to get lost sometimes because we always have a chance to choose again.”

When I am struggling with the darkness, there are some things that I always manage to forget. I forget that happiness is a choice….and that I will be given many more chances to choose it again. Just because yesterday was a shit day doesn’t mean that today must automatically be the same. I can choose to look at the world a little differently. I can choose to see the positives. I can choose to accept love.

Every person on the planet has dark days now and then. Sure, some of us have a few more than others. But the difference between those who stay down and those who pick themselves back up is a simple matter of choice. I know this for certain. I have seen it at work in myself many, many times. Why do I keep forgetting that?

And so, today, despite the horrible week that I’ve had, I choose happiness. I choose love. I choose to say thank you for everything that I have been given and to let go of the things that have not yet found their way to me. I choose these things again. And will keep choosing them again, until they are mine forever.
