How can I think happy thoughts. Every one of us seeks to be happy, yet many struggle to achieve this – often mysterious – state of mind. What many don’t understand, however, is that happiness is a choice. We have to choose happiness. It’s not something that will eventually come down upon us. It’s also not something that can be awarded or even bought. Instead, we have to learn how to be happy from within.
One of the greatest mistakes people make in their pursuit of happiness is that they seek happiness from the outside. They try to accumulate wealth and material possessions in the hope that these things will make them happy. At the same time, many seek to fulfill all their desires, without realizing that they are insatiable. All these attempts are bound to fail.
No one can ever live life only on the bright side. We all have to go through some difficult times as well – including you and me. And there will be times when trials and tribulations will rain down upon you. There will be stormy dark days where it seems as if you have entirely forgotten how it feels like to be on the bright side of life. But none of this is permanent.
In these challenging situations, it is important to remind yourself that there will be better days as well. In fact, it is crucial to maintain a positive and optimistic attitude during these times. Remaining positive will help you to keep going and to keep searching for the light at the end of the tunnel. It will encourage you to do whatever it takes to create a better future for yourself. By entertaining happy, positive thoughts during these days, you can prevent that negativity breaks you.
Many people reject the idea that their life is predetermined. But telling yourself that everything in your life happens for a specific reason has nothing to do with whether or not destiny exists. Instead, it is a brilliantly encouraging happy thought. It will help you to gradually begin to accept whatever has happened. Not only this, but it will also open yourself up to start searching for meaning in the difficulties you had to face.
Entertaining this happy thought encourages you to stop blaming life for its blows of fate. Doing so will empower you to shed off your role as helpless victim. And once you’re no longer a victim of life, you will begin to find meaning and important lessons in the things that have happened to you. Once this process has kicked in, you will start using the difficult lessons that life taught you to grow stronger.
At the same time, realizing that negativity ultimately serves you helps you to develop the necessary courage it takes to understand that something positive will emerge from bad times.
