There is a wonderful quote that says â??there is no way to happiness, happiness is the wayâ?.
We were taught that we need a reason to be happy
In fact if you are naturally happy people will often ask â??what are you so happy aboutâ? or â??why are you so happyâ? and we usually find a reason to share as that is how we are taught it works.
But I would like to answer that I am happy because life is a gift and joy is my natural state of being. I am happy because I get to live another day and witness and be a part of beauty, kindness, laughter, passion, adventure, fun, wisdom and love.
I am happy because I choose to focus on what makes me happy rather than complain about what makes me miserable.
I am happy in the realisation that happiness is my responsibility – no one elseâ??s – and that happiness is a frame of mind not a set of circumstances .
Most importantly I am happy because I know with all my being that being happy is the most inspiring way that I can uplift others and be a gift to the world.
I am happy because I choose to be
Next time someone asks why you are so happy you have a wonderful answer, but if this one is a bit long you can simply say I am happy because I choose to be.
