Hello this Io, so nice to be back, so nice to be here.
What makes you happy and what makes you sad. It's a choice. It's a choice you make every day, today, tomorrow, yesterday you made a choice. Will I be happy, will I be sad? If you wake up and think "oh it's a bad day today and it's going to be miserable, look at the rain, look at this, look at that", you'll be miserable, you've made that decision already. And you will have a miserable day. But if you wake up and look at the rain and say "okay well I've got lots of other things I can do, so I'll have a happy day and I will do this and I'll do that and I will be happy ." And then you will have a happy day so the choice is yours, the choice is always yours. Do you know this, do you realise this, the choice is always yours.
Happiness does not come from without yourself, happiness comes from within yourself. Happiness is a feeling that you get when you want to be happy. Yes you can be happier maybe when you meet with people, but to be happy all you have to do is think happy. If you can't think that then try and think of a happy time, a happy time when you really enjoyed yourself and you laughed and you laughed and you laughed. Think of that happy time, think of that joyous time, go back to it, feel it, understand it, create it in today, in the now and then be happy, feel that joy, feel that happiness, feel the laughter. For you can only be happy when you want to be. If you want to be sad and miserable well so be it, that's your choice. It is your choice, nobody else's. So allow yourself to make the choice of freedom of happiness, because when you're sad, yea you are like in a prison, behind bars, you are deciding to stay in the gloom, in the doom. This isn't happening, this isn't happening.
But if you decide to be happy, then you can decide actually I'm going to break down the bars. I made them, I'm going to break them. So be happy, think of things that could make you happy, think of what could possibly make you happy today, tomorrow anytime you think. Just remember you have the choice, you have the choice. So be happy, laugh, giggle, watch a comedy programme, anything that makes you smile, that is good. Hear a baby's laughter, watch a dog or a puppy playing, any animal especially small animals, small baby animals always make you smile.
So be happy, be happy in the moment each time you raise your happiness, you will feel better about yourself. And if you find it really really hard to smile then make yourself smile, make your facial muscles smile. You will feel so silly you might even laugh at yourself. Now wouldn't that be a breakthrough. So smile, smile, smile, laugh and be in the joy.
Pam has a favourite poem. "Smiling is infectious, you know not what you do, when someone smiled at me today, I caught myself smiling too, as I passed around the corner someone saw me grin, and then I realised I had passed it on to him" and so it goes on. When you smile you pass the smile to others, so when you see someone smile or laugh, feel the laughter with them, feel the smile. Enjoy life. Life is for enjoyment. Enjoy your life. Make that choice to enjoy your life.
Love and blessings. I am Io.
