I've decided to be happy today

Today I have made a promise to myself, and to yoy fellow mylotters, that I will not get upset regardless of what will happen to me. I vow to be happy all day. Tomorrow, on the other hand I can not promise, because the reasons I have to be happy are few, so I guess this miracle won't last for 3 days, but for 1.

Yes I can also promise for living happily but if God not give me problems then because if I am facing problem then I cant live happily. Yes happiness is only for some days so I will suggest you your happiness dont share with anyone because it is not for long time after happiness God gives sadness. I know jealous people are everywhere so dont say to everyone I am happy I am happy.

Yeah, I guess you're right about it. You shouldn't even mind about something like exclaming that you are happy. If someone can not figure that you are happy, so you have to tell everyone that you are, it means that you are not happy. Also, if you brought God into discusion, do you really think that God hs nothing better to do than giving you trouble in your life? I mean really, is that what God is preocupied with? If He is, then He is naughty, naughty God...just saying.

Always keep in mind that happiness is a choice. I'm happy because you are also happy and doing good. Being an optimistic will also lead to happiness. The quality of life is all about dealing with your emotions or reactions in everything you do. They say life is not all about how much you have achieved in life, but it is how much you have enjoyed every moment you take in life.

Yes, indeed. But you also have to keep in mind that being optimistic puts you some kind of disadvantage from the begining. Thinking that everything will be just great is the worse case scenario if something is going to happen. You can be devastated sentimentally. You always have to be "en garde", as frenchmen may say. You can always hope for the best, but sometimes expect for the worse.

I think it´s a good thing to decide to be happy for the day. You can always make the same promise tomorrow and the next day. I had to change my way of looking at the future when I discovered I had a lymphoma. I could not make plans for the far future and had to live from day to day. The only way I could do it was to do as you want to: decide to be happy on the day I was living. Now my future has expanded: I can make plans for 3 months. I have learned that the quality of my life is much better and my life has more meaning if I don´t waste a moment feeling burdened by troubles.

I really do think it is a decision we make with ourselves. So, I love your resolution. I wish we all did this, every day. Because for the most part, what determines if you are happy, is YOUR demeanor and how YOU choose to see the world - not the good and bad things that happen to you. So, yay, for being happy. My choice is also to be happy today. Let's see where it takes us!

If we can't do it everyday, at least every once in a while we should remember to smile to somedoy on the street, even if we have no particular reason to do that. You never know what can happen, and maybe nice will happen to both of you.

Well that is certainly the best way to start the day, you have a very good reason to be happy, you live to see another day, the alternative is not so great, I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope something really nice happens to you...

Nothing special happened, but I managed not to swear that day. Also, I saw that if you think positively, even the worse case scenario isn't that bad. You can always turn a situation around in your favour. You have a nice day too!

Sometimes deciding to be happy or staying happy all day long is easier said than done,especially if you are with people who are very ungrateful and unappreciative of what you do to them But it's should be our attitude because if you let others give you a bad day, then you'll end up stressed and frustrated. Stay happy!

I'm glad that you made the decision to be happy. It's not always a easy one to make. But it is definitely a good thing to do. To decide not to let yourself be affected negatively by anyone. To be able to enjoy your day. The benefits are all there. Have a great day.
