We are drawn to the familiar. To experience something new, we need to become familiar with the thoughts and feelings in our minds and guide them to be consistent with the life of our dreams.
Our thoughts are the guiding force of our behaviors. Habitual thoughts may cause us to repeat unhappy patterns. These weekly Affirmations and Tips are designed to help you replace these habitual thoughts to enhance your life and your relationships.
Happiness is a state of being I choose.
Happiness is the mode through which I evaluate my life. Happiness is not an experience to be obtained, but rather a way of processing life. I understand that happiness is not found in the world, but rather within myself.
Observing the lives of seemingly successful people, for example many celebrities, reveals that happiness is not something that can be found or bought. It is not based on achievement, status, or even health. Happiness comes from a place of accepting all experiences and ourselves through the lenses of appreciation.
Today I am happy as I appreciate everyone and everything around me.
Tip: Today, experience more happiness by observing, acknowledging, and appreciating what is delightful, aesthetically beautiful, funny, adorable, helpful, and constructive.
