This month in the Jewish calendar is called Adar.
They say that when Adar comes joy increases.
Now you may ask how a new month starts and suddenly everyone gets happy. But it happens!
If you have the attitude that something positive is happening or is going to happen and you decide to shift your attitude, then amazing things happen. Your experiences in life actually change.
I understand that we don’t have control over our lives and that things happen that can negatively influence our thoughts and emotions.
But if you choose to be happy, or try your absolute best to be as happy as you can despite of your circumstances, then you will notice a big difference in the way your life seems to work out.
A few days ago, I was almost killed in an almost accident. Well, that’s the dramatic version of the story. My choice afterwards, once I had finished shaking and feeling absolutely nauseous, was either to focus on the fact that I could have died or that I am blessed to have survived such a near miss.
What happens to you is not a choice. How you deal with it is!
Stop saying but or what if or I can’t.
Start saying yes I can or I’ll try.
François-Marie Arouet otherwise known as Voltaire was a French writer, historian and philosopher who lived from 1694 to 1778.
He had a saying: “I choose to be happy because it is good for my health.” Even way back then, he knew that positivity had a huge impact on health.
Now that we are in the scientific era, it has been proven that people who are happier and more positive, have stronger immune systems and better longevity. So it is not only about your mental health but your physical health too.
I hope that you know that you are worth it and your life is worth living. It is worth living in a good, happy and positive way.
Let the happiness in!
