Recipe To Be Happy!

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

Being happy is easier than you think if you follow this easy recipe.  Ok maybe having all the patience you need to deal with 'whatever or 'whoever' is having a tough day or week can be a bit trying.  Or not.

 

I was fortunate to learn and model "To Think Is To Create' at an earlier age. It later became "What You Focus On is What You Create ( Law of Attraction).  And I admit it took me a few years to learn how to deliberately 'SHIFT' my thoughts to better feeling thoughts whenever I started going down the path of not creating happy thoughts or feelings.  But I continued to practice and practice again and again - whatever it took to get there. Now it's so simple for me to SHIFT my thoughts and feelings.  It's all within my power as it's within yours.  Yes it's always a choice to chose being happy.

 

The other day I heard a younger man complain about this and that,  you name it.  Everything was somebody's fault ( but not him, oh no).  He was blaming a few folks too for why things didn't work because of their actions, not his.  He sounded like a total victim and he was - to himself and the thoughts he was choosing.  He wants to be happy but he's putting his power in people who can't do anything about it for him.  My wish for him is to get control of his thoughts and feelings. If he could figure out how to see things differently his life could shift on a dime.  Time will tell.   He's got a mentor and let's hope he sees the light.

 

Some used too (and on occasion still do) call me Pollyanna.  Does it bother me - not at all.  Guess what my response is to this??  Well thank you, and YES I am exactly that.  That doesn't mean that I'm not able to deal with what most consider 'challenging' situations.  I do that well and probably it comes easier to me because I simply don't let things bother me.  I know there will always a solution.

 

Just my thoughts this lovely Friday afternoon in cloudy Phoenix!  More rain could mean more rain for my sage bush to bloom like crazy again!

You can trust me for all your real estate needs!

Always refreshing. I think being self-less is also the best way to achieve happiness.

What a wonderful post, Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker! It's a mystery to me why many folks can't or won't figure out that being happy is a choice just like being sad is. Or loving/mean, optimistic/pessimistic; well, you get the idea.

 

As for your beautiful Sage bush, isn't it amazing how much our foliage has exploded with color with all of the rain we've had over the summer and just recently!

Your post is inspirational. I will try to shift my thoughts to gratitude for the years we had with a dearly beloved pup we lost yesterday. His passing left a big hole in our hearts and our home.

Hi Will Hamm awesome.  Being happy is the most important thing to 'get'!  I've had so much going on that I needed to stay focused on here.  And now, it's completed so I may be blogging this week - we'll see.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker, OK, here I am with your popular group. I am thrilled to be here.

One morsel thought and a question: what does this sentence mean " 2 POSTS ONLY PER Main Group Blog roll page?" Will it break any rules if I plan to post 1-2 blog posts a week? Thank you so much for the invite!

Welcome to BT group Aura Alex !  You'll meet a lot of great people in this group.  Many of us are close friends!  Before you post to group simply scroll the main group page ( 1st page) and make sure you don't have 2 up. Chances are if you post 1 or 2 a week that won't be an issue for you as the page moves faster than that typically.  Come on back often and read the other posts and get to know everyone!
