secret to happiness, one moment at a time.

I'm doing a lot of reading lately.

One thing that I'm currently reading is the Course in Miracles. I tried reading it before but it wasn't the time and so it didn't work out. But now it seems to be.The lessons are about how we see in the world and about trying to make the mind understand that we don't even really see the world as it is. We only see the past and play it out on the people and environment around us currently. I'm on day 12.

So interesting. That means if we don't learn that lesson, history is bound to repeat itself over and over again in our lives like a broken record. I've heard people recently saying things like this. "Why does this always happen to me." Or, "story of my life." Or, "God doesn't want me to be happy." Whoa. Do not let words like this come out of your mouth. The only way to not let it happen is to first become aware of the things that you're saying. And then, like Wayne Dyer says, place that thought back on the conveyor belt and choose another. Do it again, and again, and again until the thoughts and words are truly positive. Not because you're lying to yourself or others but because you really feel that way.

I have a coach currently. A mentor. And he sent me a video the other day that is on Ted Talk that discusses the secret to success. Happiness. And we choose happiness by choosing the way that we think. Sounds simple enough. But trust me. I know that when I first heard this concept, I was like, OH GREAT. I'll just choose my thoughts, cuz that's so easy!! It's not easy. It's a process. But it can be done. And the results are worth it, my friend.
