Daily life can be made happier. It is a matter of choice. It is our attitude that makes us feel happy or unhappy.
It is true, we meet all kinds of situations during the day, and some of them may not be conductive to happiness. We can choose to keep thinking about the unhappy events, and we can choose to refuse to think about them, and instead, relish the happy moments. All of us constantly go through various situations and circumstances, but we do not have to let them influence our reactions and feelings.
If we let outer events influence our moods, we become their slaves. We lose our freedom. We let our happiness be determined by outer forces.Â On the other hand, we can free ourselves from outer influences. We can choose to be happy, and we can do a lot to add happiness to our lives.
What is happiness? It is a feeling of inner peace and satisfaction. It is usually experienced when there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts, and this usually happens, when we do something we love to do or when we get, win, gain or achieve something that we value.
It seems to be the outcome of positive events, but it actually comes from the inside, triggered by outer events. For most people, happiness seems fleeting and temporary, because they allow external circumstances to affect it.
One of the best ways to keep it, is by gaining inner peace through daily meditation and prayer. As the mind becomes more peaceful, it becomes easier to choose the happiness habit.
