ALM 14: How Cheap is Your Happiness?
We are the only ones in control of our own happiness. But how cheap is your happiness? After all, it should be the most expensive thing on the planet, and you set the price. Often times, our happiness becomes disrupted and we abandon living in a beautiful state. But why?
Our suffering is the culprit. Suffering is really any negative state of emotion. And remember that our thoughts create our emotions. The negative stories that we tell ourselves, and that we often believe to be true, steal our happiness and replace it with suffering.
What do I do if I’m in a suffering state? Shift your vibration by:
- Ask yourself what does this mean? Gather the good from each situation.
- Put your hand on your heart, inhale four times, hold for four, exhale for four, and repeat.
- Think of all the things you can be grateful for—being alive, your senses, family, and health. You are a conscious being with unlimited potential.
- Remember that emotion is created by motion. Sit up tall, breathe in and out, and move your body. Go for a walk or get a drink of water. Don’t forget to smile!
Not all of the thoughts you think are true. Grab hold of the thoughts that make you feel good and dismiss the negative thoughts that make you feel bad. Don’t simply give away your happiness. Make it worth something.
