I Choose To Be Happy

I choose to be happy. What are you choosing today? You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be unhappy. If you choose to be unhappy you will have a day of sadness. Is that really what you want?

A long time ago I learned a lesson from my mentor, Dr. James W. Delashmit. He told me you can choose to be happy or unhappy. He suggested to me to look in the mirror in the morning and tell myself that I am happy. I looked in the mirror and saw my ugly face that was unshaved my eyes that were barely open. I told myself I was happy but I don't think I really believed it. So I told my self again that I was happy and as I looked at myself in the mirror I began to laugh at the way I looked.

I said to my self, "you don't look happy". You need a shave and you need to wake up. I began to laugh at myself and before I knew it; I was feeling happy. I shaved and washed my face and I was happy and I had a great day. Why did I have a great day? I chose to be happy and I was and it made my day.

Today you need to choose to be happy and you will have a great day. I can tell you from experience when you don't choose to be happy your day will turn out just like you feel. Is that what you want?

Get up and tell yourself that you are happy. Look in the mirror and laugh at yourself until you are happy and experience a wonderful day.

Have a great day and I will see you on the other side.
