Unhappiness is what gets created when we allow grief, sadness and anger to dominate. When there is unhappiness, the trauma and drama comes, and then it’s news. It gets splashed around everywhere as the norm, and we are expected to participate in it. If we don’t and we choose to be happy instead of join in on the trauma and drama, we often become judged as ignorant, selfish and mean.
But for those who are choosing not to buy into the unhappiness, grief, sadness and anger that most operate with, what a great inspiration that actually is – to step into being more of who we actually be, rather than becoming what others say we must.
In exercising our ability to have another choice beyond the status quo, we create possibilities that are greater than the norm. Being happy and choosing beyond what others are willing to choose, allows you to gain clarity and awareness of what is true for you and what else is actually possible in the world. You become a catalyst that invites change. In a world that truly needs different perspectives and possibilities, your happiness is a magnificent gift!
What if happiness is not mean, selfish or stupid, but rather the opposite – what if it is kind, brilliant and allows us to outcreate the grief, sadness and anger that currently dominates in the world? What if it’s the change the world actually requires right now?
If you’d like to change the world from the status quo of unhappiness and all that goes along with it to something kinder, greater and more fun, start asking yourself each day: What happiness can I be today that would change the world right away?
Your happiness is a gift, will you choose it today? Even just for 10 seconds?
