Choosing Happiness – Introduction to My fb Page

June 17, 2015|Posted in: Choosing Happiness

Choosing Happiness w cThis post is an introduction to my facebook page, Choosing Happiness.  It is a page to inspire positive thinking, contented living, to encourage people in every circumstance, to find the good & “Purpose to be Happy!”

Being happy is something I have had to work at all of my life. I believe the reasons behind that are partially genetic but also largely learned habits. The fact that I was a pampered child seems to have played a part as well.  For the first five years of my life everyone was kind, everyone shared, everyone wanted me to be happy (my closest sibling was five years older than me).  When I ventured out into the real world for Kindergarten I was shocked that it wasn’t as perfect a place as my home was.

I have many family members and friends who I know would benefit from learning how to live happier lives. Now that I am in my fifties I feel like I have learned a lot about being happy. I am always looking for new ways to look at life and to understand myself and others. I’m finding happiness in ways and in places and ideas that I would have never expected. The purpose of this page is to help myself and other people by sharing thoughts and ideas that inspire us to choose to live happy lives.

While choosing happiness is an option for most of us, I know there are many people who struggle to be happy and/or fight depression and there are many different causes and reasons. While I hope this page will help others, I know there are people for whom it is not enough to simply choose happiness. I believe it is very important for some people to have the help of mental health professionals and often times the help of medications.  Making the choice to get help if you need it, can be a first step toward choosing happiness. 

So, that’s the info on my Facebook page – “Choosing Happiness!”

    Such a great idea! Something recently came up, somewhere online, I should have written down where I got it from, but on a post it on my computer at work says, “Happiness is a choice not a destination” So true!

    You are so, so, so right – it is a choice – and I’ve been trying to be more deliberate in choosing to be happy – and exercising gratitude – on a more regular basis – so I think this is a great idea!!

      Sara, sometimes we get into a habit of being down and we just need to remember to make a better choice.

    I have struggled with anxiety and depression since I was a teenager, but I now choose to be happy. It’s not always easy, but it’s possible! I’m going to check out your Facebook page 😉
