You cannot make another person happy; the only thing you can do is share your happiness with them.

Our moods rub off on each other and we cannot give another what we do not feel

We tend to believe that something has to happen to trigger a feeling in us. We notice that as human beings we are reactive, something happens and we have an appropriate reaction.
And yet there are people who are sad for no reason and happy for no reason. The truth is simple: it is not the experience or happening that creates our mood or feeling it is the story we tell about it.

Our thoughts create our moods

Our thoughts create our moods and we can put ourselves in a happy mood by accessing a happy memory or focusing our thoughts on something or someone that pleases us.
We can even project your thoughts to a future happy event or simply focus on the blessings in the situation in front of us. When we realise that we are responsible for what we think about anything and everything we can choose thoughts that constantly lead us to acceptance, peace, contentment, non judgement, forgiveness and joy.

We do not have to rely on other people or events to create our mood

What a relief that we do not have to rely on other people or events to create our mood, but have a choice in each moment what we think and therefore how we feel.
