Being happy… or living joyfully, or being empowered instead of being a victim is a choice. When you’re in the midst of a really stressful, drama-filled, frustrating situation, how can you CHOOSE to be happy?!?!
I mean – sometimes you don’t just want to get over it because dammit, that situation really pisses you off… how can you just get over it and “be happy?!?” Pfffft.
But – consider this… The energy you bring to a situation has the power – THE POWER – to change the situation.
Think about it. If you bring frustrated, drama-filled, stressful energy to a situation it perpetuates the drama, the frustration, and the stress… am I right?
This is not to say that you should – nor is it possible to – move through life as if blissfully unaware, and uncaring about what is going on around you… this is more to say – mind the energy you’re bringing to the party.
You can choose to gossip… you can choose to speculate… you can choose to be adamantly right… you can choose to be defiant… and – we’ve all made those choices in situations, yes? (YES.)
Or – you can choose to realize that, you don’t know exactly what the other person is thinking… you don’t know what the outcome is going to be… and you don’t fully know every single detail of the entire circumstance… so you can change how you will approach the situation.
Deciding that you’re going to bring good energy to a situation has the power to change, sway, and guide the outcome of the situation – so does bringing crappy energy – but the beauty is – you get to choose.
So – what’ll it be?!?
