Be happy.

Two words that sometimes feel so hard to do. Sometimes the smallest things will ruin your day, but why? Why do we choose to not be happy? I mean if you think about it realistically being happy is our choice. You can choose to let things get to you, or you can choose to let things go.

I mean, look back on things you have gotten upset about. How many of them seem so small to you now and almost embarrassing to talk about? I myself can think of too many to admit. Thinking back on most of these moments I clearly chose to be upset when I could have just took the situations for what they were and moved on.

Sometimes we let the hustle and bustle of life get in the way of what is important in our lives. We let material things and images of what we want our lives to look like take over. Life is what you make it. Instead of dwelling on the negatives we should be thinking about all the positive things in our lives. Like just being thankful we woke up this morning or grateful for the people in this world who love and support us. We can always find something to be happy about, even if its the little things in life.

I’m not saying this is easy, I know I am at fault for letting small things get to me as well. For not smiling because my day wasn’t going as planned or letting someone else’s actions get to me. But maybe we just need a reminder that there is always something to be happy about. No matter your circumstance, life is too short to choose to be anything other than happy. 😊
