On Happiness

I have decided to be happy -yes. And yes -it is a choice. I suffer with chonic pain and I've learned to look at things optimistically. I am a glass is half full kinda gal. I've had to learn it and chronic pain is a very good teacher. I was not always like this growing up for whatever reasons. Since my car accident 22 years ago I've learned that if I do not look at the bright side of life then it just makes the pain even worse. I have successfully rewired my own brain and now it's become an automatic thought process. Anyone can do this -it takes time and practice until it becomes automatic just like anything else. We self create ourselves every moment of everyday so why not choose to be happy.
