You don’t have reason to be happy—make it up.

We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be—which takes care of everything. Even if you don’t have reason to be happy—make it up. Fantasize it. Make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another—no matter what. “No matter what, I’m going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I’m going to be happy. If I never have to see that person’s face again, I’m going to be happy. If I have to see that person’s face, I’m going to find something to see in that person’s face that makes me happy. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to be happy.” —Abraham

This is my happy place. Water intense color and nature all around exploding making my senses alive. This little painting hangs on the wall by my computer. It is a reminder. Where I am and where I need to return to now. Not that exact place but to that feeling and emotion of joy delight and happiness. Simple if you know where the switch is to turn life on. Happy is simple and when you feel happy hold it, explore it, revel in it and know it. When things slip and you become a little doubtful and you will because life is a work always in progress, you can bring up the emotion you now are intimately joined to and happiness will elevate you back to the right path in your life.

Get to know happy and hang on tight for the ride of your lifetime.

When you’re happy for no reason, you bring happiness.

“When you’re happy for no reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don’t need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness.”

Marci Shimoff, is a motivational speaker and author. This quote comes from her book Happy For No Reason.

Animals are best at showing us being happy for no reason. It is obvious this polar bear is very content and happy. You can see the connection that happiness is making with the woman.

Again happy face, the connection is in the being and sharing of each other lives. Happy and being happy connects human beings on the soul level of all life.

This is a favorite image.

But there are times when no humans are necessary. Animals always know that connection and live from a happy place no matter what their circumstances. Lessons fellow humans can learn.

Surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest place in the world.

Sometimes don’t you feel this way?

I can fully understand what these words are saying and know there are people who agree, feel the tug at their own hearts. There is no blame. No one is at fault for your circumstances. You made a choice and that choice put you in the situation, now behind the loneliness you know you are in the midst of the wrong people for your life and now you feel trapped. In my situation I have found myself in a wonderful neighborhood but the wrong people. It took me 5 years to see the obvious. When you go off course and head down the wrong road you end up in a lovely town but the wrong people living there aren’t the neighbors or town. It is you. Figure out who you are and get back on the road, finding the right people in your life.

Spirit, the Universe is showing you to start moving and it is never too late or impossible to correct your situation. Staying is the worst thing you can do and nothing will get better. I have realized this hard lesson but I also believe I am back on the right road again. I am selling my home and relocating back to Vermont. Check out my house for sale site. It wasn’t until my heart broke wide open did I see my truth and what will it take for you to find yours?
