Is Happiness a Choice?


Everyone seems to be searching for happiness. We always search for it in all the things we do, the people we spend time with, the things that we accumulate, how we decide to live our lives, and we can go on from there.

What is happiness?

The Webster’s dictionary says that Happiness is:


hap·​pi·​ness | \ ˈha-pē-nəs \

Definition of happiness
1a: a state of well-being and contentment : JOY

b: a satisfying or pleasurable experience: I wish you happiness in life. I had the happiness of seeing you— W. S. Gilbert

2: FELICITY, APTNESS a striking happiness of expression

3: obsolete : good fortune : PROSPERITY all happiness be chance to thee— William Shakespeare

We get the things, the people, the job, the money, and so on and for a few moments we think that we have happiness only to see that none of that stuff is our happiness. We then go searching for more.

Can we choose Happy?


We believe we can choose to be happy in every circumstance. This to us doesn’t mean that everything always smells like roses. What it does mean is that we can choose to live our lives from a place of higher awareness. A place where we can see all that we have been given and that the world is a big play. What we just learn here is learning and growing and none of these contains or determine our happiness. Our happiness do comes from deep within all of us. We choose what we see and how we envision our lives.

How you ask?

Well it is a never ending solution. You will have to stay aware. You must develop a daily practice that will keep your focus on all your feelings and even maybe changing your perception of some of those things that you think may bring you down and cause you unhappiness. There are lot of things you can always use in your daily practice. Below are a few.

5 daily practices that can change your life:

  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Breath Work
  • Contemplation

Of course there are lot of things that you can use as your daily practice that would help you become more aware of yourself and change some of the thought processes that you think make you unhappy. These are some of our chosen favorites and we can say you should practice daily and you may see your world in an entirely different way.

You see, we all have the power or ability to choose happiness in every situation we found ourselves. This doesn’t mean that you don’t make changes to life. You live it to enhance your experience so you can learn and grow all the while being your happy self at whatever point you are. Like they say is sweet but not easier they never said
