We all have the desire to live happy lives. However, the effort and personal work we have to do to attain this desire can be challenging for us, especially during tough times. So, is happiness a choice? Yes. But being happy requires more than just making the choice that “I choose to be happy.” Sustaining happiness in your life takes commitment, courage, a deep understanding of who you are, and knowing your purpose in life. All this does not happen overnight – it is a lifelong journey.
By choosing to embrace happiness into your life, you are taking responsibility for your own contentment.
Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. – Joseph Campbell
When you live a happy life, you have more resilience; your confidence and self-belief flourish. This enables you to successfully navigate your way through the curveballs (the tough times) that life throws at you.
