★CHOOSE HAPPINESS

I am sharing a message I read recently by Maria Shriver.
My desire is that you enjoy it as much as I have.

“Maria’s Message”

I was shooting a story this week for the Today Show (it airs Monday) on the pursuit of happiness. I interviewed two young guys who set out across the country to talk to the happiest people in the United States. And what they found was pretty simple: They found people who believed in gratitude, who relied on community and who consciously decided to choose happiness.

Choose happiness…

Direct yourself — your mind — towards that goal. I like that because it means that happiness — positive well-being — is actually within our reach. It’s in our power.

That’s huge. Because that means every day we can get up and decide to look at the gloom and the doom or we can redirect our thoughts, shift our outlook, and look towards the good.

As one expert I interviewed (she airs Wednesday) said, “It’s like going to gym. You have to work for it.” Just like you can decide to pursue a healthy body, most of us can chose to pursue healthy thoughts.

On this holiday weekend when we celebrate our independence as a nation, I think celebrating the fact that we have the freedom to chose happiness is also a cause for celebration.

Now, I know millions struggle with depression. Other face sickness that can surely rob us of joy. Every day people confront grief and loss, but what these guys and others found is that very often people who go through really hard times, who face what seem like insurmountable issues, come out the other side and experience joy, and yes, happiness.

They choose it.

A friend of mine said to me not too long ago: “Look, everyone is fighting for happiness and you really do have to fight for it.”

Sure, some lucky people are just born happy. God bless them, but most of us have to fight for it. Most of us have to fight through stuff, and the good news is that most of us can get there if we decide it’s a priority worth fighting for.

Our forefathers and mothers fought for freedom in all areas of their lives and they believed that the pursuit of happiness was worth fighting for as well. I know that being grateful, being part of a community, giving back as much as you can, it all helps push us in the right direction.

But knowing that everyday I get to make my own happiness choice is a gift.

On this holiday, which I’m blessed to be spending with family and friends, I will choose happiness and will be, as always, so grateful to live in the greatest country on Earth.

Thank you to all those who fought to make this land what it is and all that continue to do so. God bless America. Land of the free home of the brave. #PassItForward

With love,
Maria

 Choose happiness... I wouldn't have it any other way(:flat,1000x1000,075,f.u3.jpg

Happiness is a wonderful choice, it is as if we allow our true nature to come out from with in and have a voice and it shouts “Hip Hip Hooray let us celebrate the gift of the day”!!

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” Jim Rohn

“Happiness blooms
in the presence of self-respect and the absence of ego. Love yourself. Love everyone around you. Love everyone in the whole world.
Know that your own life is of infinite importance,
as is every other life.”
Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Happy

“All seasons are beautiful
for the person who carries happiness within.” Horace Friess

“Happiness is the experience of loving life. Being happy is being in love with that momentary experience. And love is looking at someone or even something and seeing the absolute best in him/her or it. Love is happiness with what you see. So love and happiness really are the same thing…just expressed differently.” Robert McPhillips

“Being of service to others is what brings true happiness.” Marie Osmond

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.” — Audrey Hepburn

“True happiness…arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one’s self.” Joseph Addison

“Happiness always sneaks in a door you did not think was open “
Anonymous

“I do not exist to impress the world. I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy.”
-Richard Bach

“If you smile while no one is around you really mean it.”
Unknown

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” Buddha

“All seasons are beautiful for the person who carries happiness
within.” Horace Friess

I am living the Divine plan which includes wonderful health, wealth, happiness, and perfect self-expression for me now

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.”
― Hermann Hesse
