Happiness is a Choice

I just realized that happiness is a choice. We can choose to live a happy life, to be a happy person. Anyone could be happy as long as they choose to be. There is no secret recipe nor specific formula at all. Whatever circumstance, the choice is still ours. So to everyone out there struggling, cheer yourselves up! Choose to be happy and don’t let all those problems weigh you down. Life isn’t life without those struggles and battles.

Anyone can be happy even without the help of other people. Though, there are still times that a simple greeting and appreciation from other people can make our hearts hella happy!! Still, it is our choice, aye? If your mind is set to be happy, with or without other people, you will be 100% happy. But if not, nothing and nobody can do.

Basically, choosing happiness is also a part of self-love. Appreciate the simple things in life, love your flaws, the natural flaw-ful and beautiful you, live your life to the fullest, and enjoy every single morning that shines. As the saying goes:

You need to love yourself first before you can truly love others.

Self-love is always the best love! ♥ Be good to yourself. Make time to do whatever we love, just to play, without worrying about wasting time. Travel and explore new things. Pamper yourself. Look at the mirror and see the real definition of beautiful. Drink coffee. Spend time with yourself. That you will realize that YOU can make yourself happier than ever.

Analyzing my photo, darkness is around me. And yep, it really is. Not literally but in the means of having some sort of struggle and hardship in life right now in my senior year. Yet, the brightness still focuses on me. God is with me and His light always transcend above all. He’s my strength, my salvation, my everything. How to be happy despite all those stressful academic works and everything? Prayer and a good communication with the Lord. Trust me, it really works. That’s why I always choose to be happy.. Because God is always blessing me so much more than I deserve. And I’m forever thankful for having this life.



At the end of the day, it’s all about making a decision, the right one, if we don’t choose to be a happy person, it’s like indirectly we have made a decision to be a person that doesn’t give importance to happiness, therefore, the moments of happiness might not be many. But if we choose to be a happy one, well it can spread and pervade among other people and that can make a happy and peaceful environment. Let love and happiness withstand above everything!
