During a recent search for positive affirmations on the internet, I came across this simple yet profound statement, “Think Happy. Be Happy.” This statement has stuck with me for weeks. The more I say, “Think Happy. Be Happy.” the more tangible this has become… I believe “happiness” found me. In other words, I have become more aware of things that make me happy such as a quote on my Lululemon bag, a workout at 5AM, and coffee.
What makes you happy?
The idea that to think something is to be something is relevant…It works! This may not be a new concept for you if you practice positive thinking. However, what you tell yourself, specifically, the positive messages take daily practice. It is easy to think negative thoughts if things are not going well for you. Therefore, I encourage you to “Think Happy. Be Happy.”
Let me know how this works for you…Did “happiness” find you?
