Well a Happy 2017 to you! I am sorry to have taken so long to write. It has been a difficult time over Christmas…too many empty chairs at our table… health issues…sadness…battling with so many emotions…overwhelmed!!!
But you don’t want to hear about all that, I’m sure!
I don’t know what to write about today, but I just wanted to re-connect. A new year, a fresh start? I so want to be happy. How about you? Is it possible to become happy when suffering from depression, anxiety, grief and chronic pain, diabetes and high blood pressure? I wish I could just get on with living. Everyone has their own problems to deal with; we are all in it together, this thing called life. We all have different lessons to learn. On the surface, it can seem unfair. Some seem to have it all, a charmed life…others have horrendous difficulties. But we can’t and shouldn’t compare ourselves with other people. We don’t know their story.
Happiness is found within, apparently…not ‘out there’. So how do we get to it? How can you overcome the gnawing pit of misery that robs you of joy every day.
‘You have to ‘decide’ to become happy,’ the positivity brigade state with all the authority of idealistic simplicity. Simples!!! Then everything will fall into place. Life will become rosy… the Universe will divert all good things your way.
Ok, so I now ‘decide’ to be happy! Are you with me?
From this day…Wednesday 18th January I will be happy. There, I’ve said it!
I am happy today in every way!
I look for the joy in every small moment!
I fill my life with gratitude!
Watch this space!!!!
