As a holistic health practitioner, I work with people who struggle with anxiety, PTSD, depression and other conditions that make it challenging to find joy (which I define as inexplicable peace).
I’m sure you’ve heard the adage, “Happiness is a choice.” Much like Lori Deschene, the founder of Tiny Buddha, I believe that “Happiness takes a lot of choices that are sometimes hard to make,” is more realistic.
Each day we’re presented with countless choices. They include the decision to:
- Accept ourselves and our struggles. Or not.
- Take responsibility for getting help. Or not.
- Do things that promote personal wellbeing. Or not.
Even when—especially when—we feel like giving up.
What’s your most recent choice for happiness?
