Choose Your Reality
We choose how we want to interpret the reality of our world, whether we do it consciously or subconsciously. And in our interpretation, we make our reality...
What is your reality? Do you want a happy and wholesome reality. See the happy and wholesome in the world. You chose what to pay attention to. No one else can tell you what to pay attention to. You chose what to read, what to watch and who you are friends with. Do you chose consciously? Or do you chose subconsciously?
I know many would say there is not anything happy or wholesome left in this world. I will tell them that there is much happiness and wholesomeness, it just depends where and how you look.
Many people focus their thoughts on all that is wrong in the world. I say focus your thoughts on all that is right. Do not focus on the bad, focus on the good. Do not focus on the ugly, focus on the beautiful. The more you focus on what you want, the more you will find what you are seeking.
We are unhappy when we think unhappy thoughts. We think someone made us sad, so and so made us angry, giving power to others. The power is our own. Only we can “make” us feel something. Others can do things that may hurt us or disappoint us, but only you can decide how you want to feel. Has someone hurt you? You can either dwell on the hurt, or forgive them and move on.
Our reality is made from a combination of our memories, experiences and knowledge. This is how we make our reality what we want it. As soon as we see something, hear something, smell something it becomes a memory. Most memories involve feelings alongside the tangibles. The feelings are the thread that weaves our memories and existence together.
Do you want to feel good? Then think good. Choose to think of good things. Focus on the positive influences. Remember beauty. You need to consciously choose to control your thoughts. So often we just go along, day in and day out, not realizing that we are in limbo. Remember, choosing not to chose, is still a choice. Each one of us has the power to control our own destiny. Each of us has the power to make our own reality.
How will you choose? Choose a smile. It is a proven fact that smiling will make you feel better. Choose to laugh. Laughing together connects us and allows us to share. Choose happiness and make your reality. The choice is yours and only yours. Have fun!
Only You Can Choose Happiness!
