Have you ever noticed how happiness is often fleeting? No matter how elated you become, eventually your mind finds
things to worry about. Sometimes we even create problems where there really are none.
One of the most self-destructive tendencies we have as humans is not allowing ourselves to be happy. This is because
there is another voice in our head, the adversarial force that rushes in the moment we achieve any sense
of true joy, and whispers in our thoughts all the reasons why we need to be afraid, upset, or stressed.
Our job is to consciously choose a sense of inner peace over that voice of negativity.
A life of happiness lies in your own hands, and more importantly in your own mind. It’s just waiting for you to choose it.
