Inklings On The Key To Happiness

One of these days, I’ll quit procrastinating and actually write a post that’s I’ve been mulling over for months on happiness… It’s one of those that’s going to take some time, and some energy, and probably a little baring of the soul…

TJIC, who has apparently been where I was earlier and my life and understands where I am now, has this to say:

For a decade or so in my teens and early twenties I acted as if my internal mental state was not my choice.

It made me miserable.

It’s been a bit more than a decade since I decided that my internal mental state was my choice, and it was my responsibility to every day pick the mental state I wanted.

I’ve been a lot happier, and accomplished a lot more.

It seems like an easy thing to suggest, and it’s probably not as easy as it sounds. But it works.

When you absolutely realize that you have the power to choose, when that fact truly sinks into your head… It’s about the most powerful thing you’ll ever learn.

  1. Brad, the power to choose is one of the biggest keys to happiness. My mom used to say, “you can be happy or sad, now make your choice”…… You have two big reasons to be happy, you have a beautiful wife and a cute little boy to love. They can help be your strength in times of hardship…..

    I have been very blessed to have a good family that loves me….Think of all of your positives and thrive on that.
