Choosing Happiness – I Deserve To Be Happy!

happy.jpgYesterday we learned that well-being is a mindset and by incorporating healthy living principles into your daily routine, you will experience higher levels of consciousness, wholeness, peace and internal health from the inside out!



In order to create a lifestyle of true happiness, balance and well-being you first must journey deep down inside yourself.

The answer lies deep within where no one else is looking but you. Happiness is not just something that comes to you; it’s something you choose to create for yourself.

Waiting for something to happen or change in order to be happy is putting your life on permanent hold because it is not what happens to you that counts but instead how you choose to “react” and “handle” what happens to you that really matters. 

When you adopt a positive attitude and are grateful for what already “is” then life becomes much more rewarding and fulfilling instead of just something you simply endure.

To create a state of happiness you have to develop and strengthen your inner-resolve so that no trial or hardship could ever destroy your piece of mind. 

To do this it is important to first understand that you deserve happiness. Those who believe that they are not worthy of happiness may subconsciously sabotage their efforts to achieve happiness.

If necessary, tell yourself each day that you deserve to be happy until it becomes engrained and embedded into your belief system.

  1. I truly enjoyed this post because just yesterday I was questioning my company and why I haven’t been making any money. It makes me happy but it wasn’t. I was listening to a podcast about being happy and it said the very same thing you wrote her, that you can’t wait for SOMETHING to make you happy. It also said that things come to you because you are already happy and not the other way around. IF you aren’t happy, and money comes to you it is only a mask…Very interesting stuff.

    Really enjoyed your post! Thanks for sharing the happy!

    • Hi KG,
      Great comment!!

      This is so true what you learned in your podcast.
      When a person is in a state or (vibration) of happiness everything around you seems brighter. Always be aware of your feeling, and know that you can change it at will. Your feelings indicate to you your vibration, and they predict what will come next.

      For example, if a person is unsatisfied with their finances, the first step to changing that is to have a new attitude of gratitude and satisfaction. From this new state, coupled with new thoughts of wealth and positive expectations, your finances will miraculously and quickly turn around.

      Healthy blessings and thank you again KG!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! I struggle with seeing the positive side of things. I’m hoping one day, I will have it mastered! Thanks!

    • Hi Wendy!

      If happiness is the state you wish to embody, follow the path of happiness, instilling joy in all those you meet, enjoying time by yourself, watching comedy and spending time living in the imaginary realm that delivers a knowing that whatever you desire, you already have, and whatever you desire to be, you already are!

      Healthy blessings and Happy New Year!

  3. Dear Gena,

    Another great post! This concept is really KEY to being higher vibration, being happy, and thus attracting all those things and people and situations that you thought you needed to be happy.

    Working within yourself to be happy regardless is so worth doing.


    Thank you,

    • Hello Kathy!

  4. There is a theme through all the blogs that I am reading as part of this Ultimate Blog Challenge and it’s around taking responsibility, taking control, making things happen as you choose. Although from time to time blips occur, I am someone who wants to shape her own life and in my work I help, mainly women see that they have choices and can do this is their own lives too. We all have so much power even when it doesn’t always seem so and the choices we make and changes we bring about do not always have to be large ones, sometimes major change can come about through small choices.

    We do deserve to be happy.

    • Absolutely true Heather! Major changes can “indeed” come about through small choices. Amen!

    Great post. I wish more people understood that they deserve to be happy and that it is a choice. I try to remind myself everyday. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. Hi Gena, great post! And so true. Other people and things are not what make us happy; we do that. Happiness is a state of mind, a choice, if you like. We choose whether to be happy or not, we choose what emotions. Nobody else has control over that. It’s really empowering once we can grasp that concept. Absolutely each and every one of us deserve this happiness. Love your post! Blessings, Andrea

    • Well said Andrea!

  7. This is very inspiring. It’s difficult sometimes to maintain happiness but a positive attitude always helps me.

    • Maintaining a positive attitude always helps me too Candra.
      When we choose a positive state of mind our entire world becomes brighter and everything works out for the good. When our perception changes – the world around us changes.

  8. Hi Gena

    Great post. The power to choose to be happy! One of the first concepts that I learned from you! “I deserve to be happy” I never knew happiness was a choice and sure now know that I deserve happiness in my life.
    Thank you.
    Sending you love and light.
