I Wanna Be Happy
Happiness is just a choice, you only accept being unhappy because you choose to. All you have to do is choose to be happy.
This is the actual answer you are looking for. However, right now it’ll probably be pretty difficult to accept it for what it is. The whole world says ‘I wanna be happy’ but what they don’t realise is that they can choose to be at any point in time.
You can literally switch off unhappiness as easily as it appeared to come about. However, there are quite a few mental barriers which have to be removed before that can happen easily. The primary one being… ‘I wanna be happy, I’ve always wanted to be happy, if I could choose to be happy then don’t you think I would!’ I.e. You don’t believe you can.
However, you can. It is simply about understanding how your mind works so that you can control your thoughts. Then once you recognise that you are the one controling your thoughts you can start to actually control them. This is when you feel the unhappiness starting to approach, or even when it comes over you like a Tsunami. You simply allow the thoughts to come in and observe them.
As you observe them without judgment you rob them of their power and you just remind yourself that ‘feeling unhappy’ is simply not helping you get where you desire to go. Once you have robbed them of their power, and you have remembered that they are not helping you then thoughts of unhappiness and being unhappy simply dissolve.
I wanna BE happy
It sounds too good to be true. I know, however, sometimes the simplest of solutions does not lie on the outside but on the inside. I am not saying that I do not get unhappy as that would be a lie. It is just as soon as I am aware that I am not happy (which is pretty quick). Then I simply observe my thoughts, I know that they are not helping me because no thought stands still. It either hurts or helps. And once this happens I am released from the unhappiness instantly, because it has been instantly transmuted into happiness.
Why, because how can you not be happy at being able to switch off unhappiness? So the next time you hear yourself say ‘I wanna be happy’, go inside your mind and take a look at your thoughts.
And if you would like to remove all (not just this one) of the mental road blocks to living an abundant ‘happy’ life then I recommend you take a look at the first five chapters of my book Creating A Bug Free Mind… They are of course free and I guarantee your mindset will change in those first five chapters alone.
