Go Ahead, Be Happy!

Dancing Girl on Beach

(Happiness Video Below!)

Generally I like to smile and be happy, but sometimes I’ll catch a glimpse of myself passing a mirror and think, “Whoa, why so serious?” (or angry, frustrated, etc.) And when I observe myself, I can see that I’m holding onto that mode. If I ask myself why, I don’t have a good answer.

Well, I think I found the answer with this video, or rather the antidote. Debating with myself about why I’m stuck in one emotion is not the thing to do. The thing to do is:

Just Choose to Be Happy!

It really is as simple as that. A great way to do it is to break out of your mode with a complete shift. So instead of inching your way into the water, just dive in.

How? Do something silly, watch something funny, or dance. Here’s a great video to inspire you!

    How very true, you can find yourself with a permanent scowl! I’ve had people/strangers walk up to me on the street and tell me to “cheer up! It may never happen!” And that’s me feeling great by the way!

    I loved the video, but the fact that the woman in your photo is wearing a Cubs hat made me really happy! (Although the Cubs have made me unhappy many times over the years).

    Whenever I find I’m too serious and turning negative, I go for a walk. I get outside, to get outside of myself. It really helps to shift my mood.

    Two sayings get me going when I’m too serious or hesitant.

    One is a line from a movie, but I don’t remember which: “100 years from today we’ll all be dead.”

    This snaps me back to get busy having fun, working toward a goal or whatever.

    The other one is: “If it’ll be funny later, it’s funny now.”

    This one saves me from freaking out when a grandkid breaks something or I’m struggling with software or a computer issue.

    This is such a great peace of advice….. We sometimes get stuck in that little pit of unhappiness that we forget to look around and consider that the small little things that happen around us can really make us a whole lot happier.

    How do I turn my happy switch to ‘on’? I listen to music that makes me feel good or browse through Flickr photos that take me places I’ve never been before. I watch Iron Chef or take a walk on a clear night. Smelling the breeze from a beach! There’s so many things I can think of that I use to turn the light back on. Hope you all have your happy switches too!

    I love your post!

    Being a happy person can be derived from having a comfortable and abundant lifestyle. But sometimes it is just by choosing to be happy.
