“Today I Choose To Be Happy”
Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. If every day you wake up with bored and tired status, let me share with you 7 ways that helped me choose to be happy today.
We have many problems in life
Our mood and sentiments are usually dependent on situations happening around us. We tend to blame others for our unhappiness, bad mood, or loss. We blame our parents as children. When we marry, we blame our partner, then we blame our youngsters. We always find reasons to blame some of the others.
However, these things drive them to be angry and go away from us, while you and I can always choose to be happy regardless of the situation. When you know you’ve got the power to choose what to accept and what to let go of, nothing can prevent you from being happy.

Can we change our attitude a touch to form it happier? We say “of course” for this.
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present.” – Jim Rohn
Not every day is a good day for you. It’s maybe on a beautiful sunny morning, you receive mission messages from your boss while it’s your day off.
The message from him might make your day off incomplete and exhausting. Even, you’ll think all day long about the task and the things you have to do while feeling stressed. Every day, we go through many similar situations. Some cases are good, some are a bit unpleasant, and others disturbed you and sometimes, unbearable.
However, you need to make a choice.
You can choose to think about an unhappy event all day long. You may also try to refuse to think about it and specialize in other events that cause you to feel happy.
For example, ask your boss if the task he has assigned you is urgent, if so, ask more for a specific deadline for when in order that you can arrange work to be completed early. Otherwise, you can spend all your day off doing everything you have planned and leave that task to tomorrow. Don’t feel tired or upset as soon as you receive the message. You can complete quests and take a break on another day.
Another choice, you could deny finishing your boss’s task on the day off and tell him you would be done when you come back to work.
You can choose to free yourself from outer influences. Preferring happiness to unhappiness that makes you feel better each day. Hang a “Today I choose to be happy” picture in the living room and look at it every day to energize, for example.
Happiness is often the result of positive events, but actually, it comes from the inside and is influenced by external events. Therefore, it seems to be a fleeting and temporary mood, but once you learn to choose on and to permit happiness into your life, it gradually becomes more permanent.
