About 10 years ago, my friend and coworker, Joanie, had cancer that metastasized throughout her body, which eventually took her life. Yet, during her last days, she was a picture of happiness and peace. Even though she was in a lot of physical pain, she seemed to float on a cloud of serenity. She even smiled through her pain because, as she reported to me one day, she was counting the blessings of her beautiful life. She wasn’t rich nor in a relationship, but what she did have was peace of mind.

As we discussed in the video, happiness is a conscious choice. Moment-by-moment, you can decide to be happy. In fact, this may sound weird, but you already are the happiness that you seek. You may not be tuned-in to that fact, but your natural state is happiness.
Let me explain.
You were born completely tuned-in to joy, love, freedom, empowerment and happiness. You didn’t question it nor wonder how to get it. You just lived in your natural energy of joy, love, freedom, empowerment and happiness. Does a baby apologize for crying when she’s hungry or wet? No. She screams her little head off because she is being (and not apologizing for) who she really is – powerful. She’s not thinking, “I am power,” she’s just being powerfully her. Does a toddler say, “I think I’ll skip over this mud puddle so I don’t get my pants dirty.” No! He gleefully squishes the mud between his toes and fingers with total abandon. Children don’t question who they are or what they do… that is, not until they get old enough to mimic the adults around them – adults who say to themselves things like, “Happiness is out of my reach.” Or, “I’ll be happy when ___(fill in the blank)___.”
Thanks to Joanie and children, we have great role models for how to choose happiness.
Can you imagine what your life would be like if you emulated children and people like Joanie, who decide to be happy, and therefore, are happy – who choose peace of mind and therefore are at peace? It’s not about what you have or what you do that brings you happiness. It’s about tuning-in and activating that which you already are – your natural state of happiness.
The Experts Share The 4 Keys For A Happy Life:
- Raise your level of conscious and positive energy by choosing the focus of your mind. If you change your mind, you change your life.
- Stop judging your situation. When you judge that your happiness is in the hands of someone or something else, then you are not tuning-in to your own amazing power. Remind yourself daily of your natural state of happiness by repeating these phrases: I AM Joy, I AM Love, I AM Freedom, I AM Power, I AM Happiness
- Have only quality relationships in your life, such as, friends that support and love you. You are on this journey of exploring who you really are, therefore, live in authenticity, with an open heart and don’t be afraid to be yourself fully.
- Practice choosing/deciding to be happy – moment-by-moment. The more you practice the easier it becomes.
