A heavy and depressed sour mood has robbed me of my happiness for my entire life. I have worried about so many things and what is ironic is that all of my worries have amounted to absolutely nothing. I am still here regardless of what my worries have been. The only thing I have accomplished by being depressed and worried and sour is I have only put needless pressure on myself and destroying any chance feeling the joy and happiness that is here in any given moment. I have come to the conclusion that my life really doesn’t care how much I worry about it. When I view my life through the lens of worry and fear, all I only will observe the very things that already confirm what I feel. It is sort of like taking an exam and getting 97% and being devastated upset that you didn’t get 100. I am not saying that it is wrong to be upset about not getting 100, but when that point gets belabored and it is all that you focus on, is when it becomes harmful. I remember when I started my business, I met with a marketing specialist. Over lunch as he asked me questions about what I do and my approach to psychological wellness. I told him, in no uncertain terms, that I was “drowning” from a business and financial perspective. I was convinced that I was not going to make it and that I would be out of business and not survive the first year. Today, I am still in business entering my third year. Drowning?? REALLY??? No, not at all. When we have a negative mindset, we will begin to take actions based on our negative beliefs and mindset. Actions taken from this perspective will only create more problems and ultimately do more harm than good. Life is what we make of it. In short it is not only okay to be happy, but it is advisable. Try being happy, it is simply a choice, one that is just as easy to make as being depressed and sour, and habit forming too.
