I Have Decided to Be Happy

    Some days are rainy and some days are

    so bright. Eventually you learn that these things go away and that nothing is constant. I've learned that those factors shouldn't alter my happiness.

    At some point I just realized

    that your emotions can get the best of you if your expecting certain things in life. If you just let go and let life "Be what it is" then you can be happy for the "Blessed Moments" in it and you realize that you can "Create Blessings" for others. Then you'll find that you want...

    Star in my Sky I know you never think of me

    the same way I think of you. I breath you.... And it gives me pleasures painting your face in my head... It keeps me going. It makes my days bearable. You keep me company in my lonely journey thru the darkness of night. Like a star so far away ... Unapproachable but yet the...

    One day in the Garden of Eden,

    Eve calls out to God. "Lord, I have a problem!" "What's the problem, Eve?" "Lord, I know you created me and all of this beautiful garden and all of these amazing animals and that hilarious comedic snake, but I'm just not happy." "Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above...

    Just celebrated my birthday last week!

    I really don't celebrate it. My friends would usually end up throwing me a surprise party though, so I kind of expected that I would have one last Sun. Much as I want to spend it with my family, I know we can't. I'm long past on the stage of self-pity where I thought that I was...

    "Deciding" Is One Thing, Getting Happy Can Be Another

    We can always make the choice to be happy, but what happens when the first guy does something to offend your moral sensibilities? If you are human (and honest) at all you will get pissed off and bye bye "happy". Life is life but people have a habit of doing stupid things or...

    Well, this group title is somewhat misleading,

    but I'll explain. Idk why, but I notice when I talk to people while they're depressed, they are more interesting. I mean, yeah sure, they bag their problems down on you sometimes, but they actually look into themselves, and have deeper emotions. For example, my friend was...

    I have been chasing happiness

    for awhile now. The kind of happy that you only feel when you're a kid. When I think of happiness, I see this: a Summer day when I was a kid. Green grass, blue skies with white, fluffy clouds, hanging out with my friends, knowing my parents are at home & feeling like nothing...

    I'm 37 years old and I barely decided to be

    happy. I want to practice positiveness thinking and speaking. I have removed people who are negative including close family. I'm bipolar and introvert. I've been insecure all of my life. but no more.

    I'm DONE. I'm done being negative.

    I'm done feeling sorry for myself. I'm done with everything that has held me back! I wrote everything down that I'm done with on a piece of paper. It felt so good! It's over.

    Did you know that your brain responds to your

    bodies actions..... If you smile, you will start to feel happy. If you laugh, your mood will lift. However the reverse will be true...if you carry yourself in a depressed manner, you will start to feel depressed, food for thought!

    believing I need this or that does matter to me. Life is about being happy and wanting happiness for others.
