Happy is something that a lot of people are starting to view as just a fairy tale. It’s something many hope for but don’t think they can obtain. It’s so close but yet so far away. But why is this? Weren’t we all once oh so happy? Walking through a meadow full of flowers on a sunny day. Singing and dancing without a care of who was listening or watching. Or just happy being, well you?
Guess what? Happy is still there! It hasn’t gone anywhere. Take a look…I mean really, take a look and see it. You can choose to be happy each and every day. It’s a beautiful thing that we have the choice to be happy. So why not choose it? Who cares that your boss yelled at you for something you didn’t do. Or that your kids rolled their eyes at you and said something that stung like a bee. Or that your husband didn’t recognize all your hard work cleaning, cooking and taking care of the kids. Perhaps someone has broken your heart? You can still choose to be happy despite all of this.
God wants you to be happy. He wants you to smile. He wants you to be filled with joy! He has blessed you so by just giving you breath…so breathe and be happy! That’s a blessing in itself that you are still here and can be your happiest and perhaps encourage someone that may be going through exactly what you are. They will look at you and see that despite what you are going through, that you are still choosing happiness. Do it for yourself! It is the absolute best thing. Smiling feels amazing! And better yet, the sincerity behind the smile feels even better.
But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. ~Psalm 68:3
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. ~Ecclesiastes 3:12
Be encouraged today. You are so valuable! You are beautiful! Walk forward by faith and be happy.
Smile and be a blessing!
