I don’t know who needs to hear this:
Life is hard, but it doesn’t have to be harder than it needs to be.
Find ways to feel joy in your life and choose happiness regardless of the situation that presents itself.
That choice alone may be enough to help you move forward from a place of dis-ease to a life of more ease.
It’s not about denial of the challenges of life. It's not about staying stuck in unsafe places or holding onto uncaring partners. It’s not about accepting situations for what they are but assessing them. It’s about reframing your mind to deal, cope, heal and grow.
Choosing happiness is a mental exercise. It’s hard. But then again life is hard already.
