What’s the key to happiness? CHOOSE HAPPINESS!!! Well, it’s really easy to be happy, and most people don’t realize it. In fact, here’s a fun fact wait for you: Did you know that if you smile, even if you’re in a bad mood, your mood will improve immediately? Why? Because the simplest action of THINKING about smiling, which forces you to use the muscles to do so, is enough to trigger happy chemicals in the brain. So what do you do if you can’t even force yourself to smile?
There’s really only two ways to be happy. Either you change your situation, or you have to change the way you view it. Sorry, no other way to say it: Go mindfuck yourself.
Yep, I hear you screaming, “WTF did you just say to me? What did you tell me to do?” You heard me, go mindfuck yourself!!!
The key to happiness? In case you didn’t realize it, being happy isn’t always an involuntary reaction. There are times when life really sucks, and you need to focus on what you do have that makes you happy instead of moaning and groaning and dwelling on what you don’t. And goddamn it, if you are unhappy, and there’s a reason, and you know what it is, then you need to get up off your dead ass and either make it happen, get what you want, or relegate yourself to the fact that you’re not going to have it and find something else to focus on.
Because life isn’t always about getting what you want. It’s about wanting what you’ve got. when you have something that you want, usually you’re happy. Unless you’re one of those people that once you get what you want, you don’t know what the hell to do with it, or it’s like an anticlimax. You fought and fought and fought and fought to get what you wanted, now you have it , and it’s almost like defeat. Kind of a let down. We do it all the time. That’s what makes us human. As soon as we get what we killed ourselves to have, it’s not 24 hours, and we’re all chasing the next shiny door knob.
So, at the end of the day, it’s all about being happy. Or rather making yourself happy, with what you have. Being happy in the now. That’s why I tell you to go mindfuck yourself. Why? Because if you don’t, you’re going to be walking around being a miserable f*** everyday of your life. Like the song goes: You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find that you get what you need. You know the saying, or maybe you don’t , but you need to be careful what you wish for in life. And most of the time, not getting what you want is getting what you actually need. The problem is, you won’t realize it while you’re busy stamping your feet and throwing your little hissy fit and temper tantrum. And you will sit and be that miserable little shit until you realize it. So, you need to choose happiness.
Yeah guys, happiness is a conscious effort, whether you want to realize it or not. THAT, my friends is the key to happiness! Everyday, you can choose to be miserable over having to work, or you can be happy that you have a job. Plenty of people would give their teeth to be in your shoes. You can be miserable that you’re stuck eating meatloaf again, or you can be happy that you have food on your plate. Plenty of people… You know the drill. Now if you still choose to be a miserable f***, that’s entirely up to you, but trust me, you’ll have far more friends if you choose to be happy. And remember…
Positive anything is better than negative everything ANY day.
