Ok, so the world is far from perfect, but in all honesty, I just don't want any of you to go to hell as in my last post.
Happiness creates more happiness. Happiness makes life so, so, so much more enjoyable, so much more fun, so much more balanced. It gives you energy, it makes your spirit shine, it makes your soul smile, it makes disease stay away. Happiness is contagious as well. If you are happy around others, it begins to rub off on them and before long, they are cracking a little smile that will keep getting bigger the more you smile, laugh, and be happy.
So you're not happy? NO! Just go to a mirror and start making funny faces. Make yourself smile, make yourself do it because that is also contagious. Honestly!
Being happy is a choice. Even though there is so much that may be troubling you, you can either choose to worry, stress out, feel sick, lose sleep, etc. or you can smile and trust in the Universe that it will all work out ok. How many times did you wonder how in the world you were going to make it through a particular issue - but you did, didn't you? All that worry was for nothing except to wear your body, mind, and soul. Do enough of that and you are setting yourself up for something not so nice. Disease and illness are results of stress. Stress is a result of worry and fear. Worry and fear are emotions that can be chosen if you so wish, but the better choice would be to smile and focus on knowing that everything is in divine order and that its conclusion will be for your highest good.
Most of our life's negative situations were usually caused from something we did - not all of them - but most of them. There is always a solution but finding options is always more difficult for ourselves to see, and even more difficult for us to execute. Did you ever notice that it is much easier for us to find solutions to other people's issues? You hear their problems and you can't understand why they haven't applied certain solutions. After all, it was obvious from the start right? But for us, it is not always that simple. Getting some help from close friends or family may be very helpful but sometimes we don't want to hear what it is we have to do to solve our solutions - even though we realize it deep within our hearts. We justify our current actions and situations with excuses for not moving forward and making changes. Changes scare the bejesus out of so many people since we tend to be creatures of habit and we would rather cut off our arms than move out of our comfort zone.
Just keep in mind that nothing in your life will ever change unless you change it. This means taking that one dreaded step forward. The good news is that the step can be a teeny, tiny, little one because guess what? That little teeny, tiny, step starts the wheels of progress in motions and it becomes easier and easier to make changes.
I want everyone to be happy, to feel joy, to feel elated, exhilarated, amazed, ecstatic, thrilled, delighted, euphoric, jubilant, and overjoyed!! It sends such a high to you, that you wonder why the hell you ever spent even one second being worried, being depressed, being stressed out - or taking any crap from anyone. Never EVER take crap from anyone, never EVER let someone else shape your life for you. You were born one soul, you were born with everything you need to make it through your entire life without the aid of anyone else (minor children exempt) and you were born with the strength and inner power to rise to greatness. When you leave this world, you will also leave as one soul.
People tend to follow along, they tend to move with the masses. There are very few who choose to be different, show their own uniqueness due to fear, worry, and anxiety of being ridiculed. What is ridicule from others? It is a form of bullying, but mostly - it is also fear, worry, and anxiety of that person because they lack in themselves the confidence and inner strength of the person who stands out. Everyone needs to find their way, but just remember - at the end of the day, the person who pointed a finger at you, went home to their own business and you no longer will ever matter to them again. You, on the other hand will sit and file away that dreadful experience and let it eat at you and get under your skin causing a plethora of negative emotions, and for what reason? There isn't any. If you get angry, upset, hurt - you are only putting power in the hands of someone else who never mattered in the first place, and they won't even know it - but for you, you just gave that person a part of you - which is the exact opposite of what you intend when you got angry. The only person you are hurting is you, and now you just blend in with the rest of the crowd again.
Hell with that! Stand up, stand tall, shout out to the world (nice things), be different, make a difference. It will all make you happy!!! Help others, smile at some grumpy ass person who is walking in the parking lot and gives you a dirty look back for smiling at them. Don't get angry, just go about your business. That person was probably worrying, or being fearful of the money they don't have, or the bills that aren't paid, or the loved one they just lost, etc. Everyone has a story and by you smiling at them, even though they didn't show appreciation or even if they were ignorant - later, when they remember your smile, it may be just what they needed. It could have made a difference somehow.
Get out and explore! Find yourself, discover the mysteries of the world! Don't tie yourself to a tree wishing you could cut the rope before you hang yourself. Be sure to allow yourself freedom to be you, freedom to move, freedom to discover. When you stifle yourself, you fall into a hole and then hole just continues to get deeper and deeper. Before you know it, you need a shovel to try to get out because you are buried so deep in crap from not leaving yourself room to grow, expand, be creative, explore, move about, make change, and especially for holding on the those things or people that literally suffocate you. That is how you become buried in that hole - and sometimes, even a shovel won't help. You will have to get one of those huge, humongous yellow machines they use for digging out in-grown swimming pools. LOL Yes, see, there is still a solution.
People have lost their compassion for others, they rarely, if ever, reach out a helping hand and do something nice for someone every day. The Universe really does reward people when they devote themselves to kindness, love, and compassion.
Also, when you worry about money, or other issues, then your main focus is on the negative aspect of worrying, stress, etc. The Universal law of attraction states that like attracts like, meaning that the people and things you attract to your life mirror your thoughts, behavior, and actions. If you worry about money, you will only bring more money problems. If you focus on knowing that all of your bills and needs are met, then they will be. It does take some time for it to come through, but people seem to quit right before their manifestation comes. We are too negative - humans are so negative in nature and so violent, so selfish, so spiteful, and that is what they will attract to them.
So once again - I say BE HAPPY!! I know you will not be able to be happy all of the time but turn it around and make it work for you - as soon as you realize you are not happy, or are going off onto one of your 'I feel sorry for myself' tangents OR complaining like you are the victim, OR thinking that you will never get anywhere - you get the point right - so when you catch yourself being negative, STOP!! Take a deep breath or 5. Then remind yourself that there is always a solution, that you will choose to be positive, and then focus on what you want and not what you fear. This takes practice, believe me. I am speaking to you from experience. I spent way too many years in needless depression with all the crap that comes with it and take my word for it, you will kick yourself in the arsp when you realize how much precious time you have wasted worrying and being depressed for no reason.
My motto - and you can ask anyone that knows me - is that 'I'm always ok.' Everything always manages to work out. It may not be quite how you expect it to, but you get through it just fine and changes are for your highest good, so stop struggling, stop making expectations on how it should work out or come about - let the Universe figure out how, you just know what you want and go after it with unwavering faith and confidence and never stop.
Happy Happy!! Depression causes your brain to shrink, it makes your brain more fragmented, it affects your ability to send and receive information, and it sends you on a pattern of more negative behavior. You actually get stuck in a cycle of more depression, more negativity. If you are already a depressed person, you will have to work at being happy but it can be done. There are many things you can do to help yourself. Meditation, hypnosis, and intuitive counseling are some of the most popular methods, along with exercise, changing your diet, making life changes, and life coaching.
So smile, show the world that there is a reason to smile! Be appreciative of every single day and don't waste any of it being miserable because somewhere out there, there is a person who is praying relentlessly because they are fighting for their lives and would give anything to be able to just smile and simply enjoy the day and the people they love.
Show your love, show your kindness, give to others, give yourself credit, be confident, love yourself, no matter what!!!!!
I love you guys! I'm so so happy! I'm smiling ear to ear, I'm sending everyone big hugs and a big smile!! Now go out and smile to everyone!! Make someone else happy but mostly, make yourself happy - no one can do it for you! :)
