Why are you struggling?
You know that basically you are a good person. You never do anything horrible. Your give plenty of your time to your friends in need. You have a good relationship with God. You live by the rules. You say your prayers. All in all, you would say that you are a good person. So, where’s your reward? Why do you have to struggle? Why is it such a grind to just get a little bit ahead? Why do you suffer?

The answer to all the questions is… start making better choices. In each and every moment choose to feel good. The golden key – your feeling good is not up to anyone else but YOU! There is no greater expression of free will than choosing to feel good regardless of any and all circumstances. Exercise that freedom. No one can do it for you. Choose to minimize the time with people that make you feel down and maximize the time with the people that make you feel uplifted. Choose to think positively about your future instead of thinking negatively about the future of the world. Choose to see challenges instead of obstacles. Choose to live fully instead of just surviving and hold to that vision no matter what. Choose to be grateful every moment for the simple fact that you have another chance to make everything better. Keep hitting the refresh button.

Your life can start to improve this very moment IF you will drop the drama, forget the gossip, jettison the baggage, stop complaining, give up the idea that struggling is part of your life,put on a happy face and make your happiness a priority. Is it selfish? Only if you think making everyone around you and everyone who loves you feel better by bringing your happiness into their lives is selfish. Ask yourself constantly…Am I sharing my happiness or my misery? Which do I really want to give as a gift to my friends and loved ones?

Struggle or smile…your choice. One feels really, really good.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
