Choosing Happiness…

In the multiple choice of life…choose happy! ~BertJane Carrollha

Bertha reminds me this morning…I can always choose to be happy. I think that’s because I’m going back to work today after several days off…and my plate there is very full.

But…she says I will have a lot to do regardless of my mood. I can be grumpy with a to-do list longer than Santa’s list…or I can be happy with a desk overflowing in paperwork. The choice is mine.

She said it’s really part of living my truth. Knowing how I want to feel and then doing what it takes to feel that way…one thought…one action at a time.

Okay…she’s right…I do want to feel good and enjoy life…today…I choose happy…so…I’m listening to perky music and chair dancing…and…I’m visualizing how good it’s going to feel to clear my desk. I’m feeling happy already!

NowBertha…said all this talking about happiness…specifically…choosing happiness…makes her think of a time in my life…when I didn’t really understand just exactly how that worked…

See…I was going through a divorce…and…I was pretty much a basket case…not even a smidgen of happiness to be found

Oh…I wanted to be happy…I wanted to quit crying…BUT…I wanted it to be on my terms…I wanted to be happy reunited with my husband…with our kids…living in our house…well…you get the idea…

Enter…Berthaeven though I didn’t recognize her at the time…some little voice in my head told me…that I couldn’t put conditions on being happy…because I can’t control conditions…

That same little voice…also explained that I couldn’t go from…devastated… to…happy…in one fell swoop…no…it was more like…make a decision that I wanted to be happy…regardless of my marital status…then choose one small thing to be happy about…even if it was what I was having for dinner…then choose another…and…another…and just keep going until…one day…without really thinking about it…I would be happy again…and…I was…and I am…

Now…when I am unhappy about something…Bertha…bellows…no small voice for her…reminding me…to find one tiny…unrelated…thing to be happy about…and…well you know the rest…

Jane…
