How many of you remember the theme song to The Partridge Family TV show? “Hello world, here’s a song that we’re singing. Come on, get happy!” And how many of you had a crush on David Cassidy?
But I digress. This post is about getting happy. Is there a formula for happiness? Is there one sure-fire way to achieve everything we want in life? Well, actually, there just might be. And it’s as simple, or as complicated, as getting happy. Simple, because we all have the power to do it. Complicated, because our conditioning tells us it’s not that easy.
Everything around us is energy, including our thoughts. If we focus our thoughts on things that make us happy, our energy shifts to a better place, and we tend to attract more happiness. But how do we do this in a world that seems to be so full of unhappy things?
We do it by making a conscious decision that we want to be happy. We have the power to choose our thoughts – so why not choose thoughs that make us feel good? We can make these conscious choices in every single moment – by choosing to focus on what is working in our lives rather than complaining about what isn’t, by choosing books and television programs that make us feel good rather than depressed or upset, by choosing to be with people who uplift us rather than drag us down into negativity.
Once we focus predominantly on that which makes us feel good, we’ll find that the world around us changes. Life flows more easily. We attract people and situations into our reality that are pleasant rather than frustrating. Our lives work better. We get happy.
And if you need a little help with feeling good, you don’t have to look any further than to your cats. They’re masters at making themselves feel good.
What will you to today to get happy?
