Happiness quotations are one way to lift up your spirits and change your chemistry. When you are feeling down, life can look bleak. This trio of quotations can change how you approach your day.
You are so much more than you see right now. You have so much more to give, and so many more things to live for. Your spirit is bigger than any fraction of your life than you see when you look at your present. Try this. Close your eyes, and float above your body. Look down on your house, then go higher. Look down on your city, then your state, then your country. Look from an astronaut’s viewpoint and look down at the entire planet. Picture for a moment everything brighter, everything lighter, everything moving in its rhythm and beauty. See the whole. Know that you are so much more than you could ever perceive, yet.
Be in that knowledge. You are more, you have more, you are more, and your capacity is just a fraction filled. Accept that you are big, in your reach, in your heart, in your love, in your life. As you shift your consciousness into happiness, every being benefits – even those you do not personally know. Your smile will touch one who then touches other, and you choose the emotions, thoughts and concepts you share. Take it to a higher level.
As human beings, we are on this planet for a short time. If you’re not feeling happy, stop and consider what you have to feel happy about. Stop and write down 10 things that quite literally you are thankful for. I remember one of my teachers said “well, were you in a car accident today? No? Great! Be thankful about that.” So take it down to the bare minimum level and look at everything in your life you can actually feel good about. Can you walk? Can you smile? Can you breathe? Some people have trouble with all of those things. Stop and count what is working.
Remember that you do have a say over your thoughts. You might think your thoughts have a say over you, but in fact, you can shift and change your thoughts. We think over 60,000 thoughts a day, and some people think mostly negative thoughts. For today, focus on a thought that is kind or a thought that generates a sense of peace. Here are some thoughts you can think: I’m doing the best I can with what I have and what I know. I am blessed because I have more to live and more to give. I cherish this moment, because it exists.
These thoughts may seem too easy. It all may feel too trite. I contend that happiness is not really that far from your reach. You can step into it right now. Be in that space of feeling peace, happiness, and warmth towards all beings on the planet. Try it on. Then, “fake it until you make it.” Good luck! happiness sayings
