Exemplify Happiness

One must exemplify happiness even when we are down.   It is a way to force our brain to accept it.  Happiness is my constant state of mind. I could easily give in to feelings of guilt, anger or sadness, but I feel so much better when I am happy. And because I feel positively about life, I radiate joy, which in turn comes back to me.

In any situation, I take a minute to look at the value of my circumstances. I believe that there is a wealth of lessons and knowledge to be found everywhere. These teachings, whether positive or negative, help to shape me into a better person. Being the best person I can be fills me with joy.

True happiness also means nurturing the well-being of my family. I pay attention to the impact my actions have on those that I love.

When my child gets injured at school, or has a falling-out with a friend, I put on my nurturing hat. I offer support and unconditional love. The healing I see when my child’s face lights up again is more than enough to make me happy.

I know I am truly at peace when every breath I take brings fulfillment. My happiness comes from spiritual and emotional soundness and honesty. Any attempts to mask true feelings with false positivity are quickly noticed because happiness comes from an honest place.

Today, I continue to live with the mindset that my happiness comes from within. My peace of mind is a result of my innate strength, resolve and perseverance. I reap good rewards from whatever is sown.

Self-Reflection Questions:

    1. Can I help others to cultivate happiness even when I am feeling down?
    2. How do I share my joy with those I love?
    3. Do I allow others’ unpleasant moods or reactions to affect my happiness?

This is where affirmations are a great help. This weeks affirmation is as follows:

I exemplify happiness in every circumstance.

About Weekly Affirmations

Each week I find it helpful to use affirmations. I personally find using the same affirmation for 7 days more effective, so I will share them each Thursday with you.
You may ask why Thursday, well it usually is the day of the week that I struggle the most. I found Sunday’s as a start not working for me, I tried then Monday and discovered that I would be stressed from work.
The discovery that the affirmation sits in my mind over the weekend that by Monday was a game changer. It became part of me effortlessly. You can use them as you see best fit. There is no right or wrong with affirmations as long as you use them. Using the affirmations in your daily life helps you build the life that you desire.

Happiness is a State of Mind

Words have power — use them to your advantage to make today a great day for you! If you are always saying you can’t do something you are setting yourself up for failure. Use these affirmations to assist you on your spiritual journey to grow and prosper.
