Don’t let anyone take away you ability to choose.
I grew up in humble beginnings. I always thought about how great it would be if I lived in an actual house versus an apartment, own a car instead of rely on public transportation, make a salary, etc. Then I grew up and all of those dreams aligned to something totally different, bigger, and even more out of reach making me unhappy. One noticeable measure of happiness is my career and going to work everyday doing something I thought I loved. I would never in a million years as a child thought life with co-workers would ever be the way it is; I would have never thought that life would be so unhappy and miserable for people with salaries and material things that I only dreamed of as a kid.
Negative energy transfers, meaning if you wake up in the morning in a good mood, go outside to check the mail and the mailmen kicks your dog for barking at them and curses at you when he drives off, then you may get an attitude with the local barista because they forgot the “no foam” on your daily coffee. In actuality, you were so caught up in the morning madness that you actually forgot to tell them “no foam”, so now that barista is rude to the next few customers, and then is continues to transfer.
One thing I am working on is stopping the negative energy. Gossip stops with me, attitude stops with me. I refuse to pass it on, and I choose to be happy. Sometimes life can be like a dog chasing its tail and we are chasing happiness. I am learning that that is fine! Dogs are some of the happiest creatures anyway lol and we could learn from that. Find something in the unhappy situation you are in that makes you happy and work on that all while deflecting negative energy. Happiness is a choice!
Decide today that you will be happy 🙂
