Choose Happiness

I feel silly admitting this, but I used to be one of those people who thought a person had no control of how they woke up in the morning.

It seems ridiculous, right?

But really, it was an aha moment when I realized I could choose how I would wake up each day. And I choose happy!

I make a conscious choice every morning to wake up with a smile and be happy! It is the first thing I do each day. This choice is a powerful thing. It starts my day in the right direction and it reminds me that I am in charge of my day – me!

This choice also resets me for a new day. No matter what happened yesterday, today I choose happy.

This important morning choice also affects those around me. Smiles are contagious; happiness spreads. The people around me also benefit from my choice because even if they are not smiling, I am.
