“We choose our emotions so being angry is a choice some people make;” now I don’t know about you but I always feel good when I’m happy so I choose to focus on things that make me happy. My latest thought is; imagine if everybody in the world was happy doing everything they do. They are happy doing their chores, happy going to work, happy with how much money they have, happy looking after their families, happy interacting with the people in their life. When you think about it, it’s not that far-fetched, I don’t know what they’re really thinking so I can pretend they’re happy.
I’m going to make a big assumption that most people prefer to be happy too, however, I’ve noticed that some people spend a lot of their time getting angry over things they cannot control so I’m assuming they are happy being angry because this is where they focus their attention. It’s an easy trap to fall into because there’s a lot of negativity in the world too. Thankfully I’m self-aware enough to avoid that particular trap. I’ll leave you with a couple of my favourite quotes.
- “The purpose of life is to be happy doing everything you do; you don’t have to like something to be happy doing it.” ~Anon
- “You don’t need a perfect life, however, you need to be happy with the one you have to improve the life you’ve got.” ~Anon
