Well, here we are halfway though February. Most people have probably already abandoned their New Year’s resolutions. And this is often a source of guilt in our lives.

Here are my life changing suggestions.
Often we act as if happiness is something that comes to us from things or people outside ourselves. But there is just not a bit of truth to this idea.
Happiness is a choice.
Happiness is an inside job. It starts inside and works its way out into our world.
We can choose to be happy in spite of all the “stuff” that is going on around us. We can go into that inner space of silence and allow the peace, joy and happiness to well up in our lives. Then, as we do, we can be changed. We can be happy.
Maybe nothing has changed in our exterior world but we have been changed inside. And as we are, then we are the change we wish to see in our world and the world looks different to us.
Being negative is not going to change anything and it will just end up making your life miserable. So let yourself be happy and positive and see how your experience of the world changes.
Change Your Words, Change Your World
We begin inside by changing our thoughts and making a new choice to be happy. Then we let our thoughts change the words we speak.
So speak to the situations in your life and say positive, life affirming words to them.
This principle is found in the Bible where it says, “Let the weak say ‘I am strong.’”
And as you begin to think positive and happy thoughts and you then say positive and happy words you will find your mental computer beginning to be reprogrammed.
Dare To Be Who You Really Are
You are a unique creation and a child of God created in God’s image.
Allow yourself to offer to your world the unique gifts and talents that only you have to offer. If you don’t, then who will?
Be the love that you are.
Be the success that you are.
Be the abundance that you are.
Be the beloved child of God that you are.
And how do you do this?
Choose to be happy. Speak positively and choose your words carefully. And as you do these things, you will be who you truly are.
Check back and see what my last 2 suggestions are for creating a tremendous life. And be sure and share this post with someone you know that needs a boost in creating a tremendous life for themselves.
