Is it just me, or has it become normal to be afraid of our own Happiness?
It seems when anyone becomes extremely happy for no other reason than because they choose to be, others either a) wish to stop them in their tracks or b) think they’ve lost their freakin’ minds.
Somehow along the way we have come to believe that settling for unhappy is normal, and that being ashamed to openly express our happiness is ok?
I’m sorry, butttt what the f@#k is up with that?
If you are happy, then frign own it. Be even happier. Rock it. Dance bigger. Laugh louder. Smile brighter. Never EVER be afraid to express your bliss in the fear that it is not fair for the ‘unhappy’ people around you.
It is ok for you to be happy.
In fact- it is RIGHT for you to be happy.
Happiness lifts not only your vibes- but the vibes of everyone around you. So crank that shit up babayyy, and turn down the “fear of being too happy that it will make the unhappy people more unhappy” knob- because let’s face it- that isn’t doing anyone any good… is it?
It’s funny though, when people see you looking extra chirpy their first question is ‘how did you get soo happy?’- followed shortly by a mutter under their breath ‘So who’s your dealer?’
You want to know how you “get happy”- Here’s a clue. You drop the bulllshit, you be honest with yourself, and you clear out the garbage that’s making you UN-happy. It’s not rocket science, but it is a daily adventure of checking in on the internal joy-o-meter. If something or someone is sending red alert signals everytime they come on to your radar, then maybe you should conveniently move countries.. or if that’s a little bold, then just take small steps to back off and start looking for opportunity to surround yourself in as much bright light as you can.
Being happy isn’t about being perfect- it’s about being REAL.
Yes- it’s not always easy. But it is ALWAYS YOUR CHOICE.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN SOUL- And keeping the spunk in the mirror happy should be your number one priority at all times.
Just know that you being unhappy doesn’t make the unhappy people happy.
But you being happy -and bloody proud of it- makes the WORLD happy.
Imagine if all we did was celebrate each other’s happiness? If all we did was protect and lift our own happiness- simply to lift the Worlds happiness. Imagine if our mission started with Step 1- Being happy ourselves, and ended in Step 2- Turning up the happiness volume in others. Wouldn’t that be one-hell-of a good time for all?
The World is counting on YOU, super-star. It is counting on YOUR energy. YOUR passion. YOUR joy. YOUR spark. YOUR love. YOUR laughter. YOUR bliss. YOUR smile. YOUR HAPPINESS.
The ripple effect only starts with one-
And it starts with YOU.
