Day 176 of 182
Wednesday 29th July
Everyone can have more happiness in their lives if they want it. Starting now.
Before this experiment I didn't realise how much it all came down to the fact that I had a choice.
174 days in I have reached levels of happiness that I didn’t even know existed, I barely recognize the way I lived my life before, and from Day one it began. Immediately I started to feel happier.
The steps I took to get here have been so simple, that doesn’t necessarily mean easy though to be honest a lot of the time it has been easy. I’ve introduced new habits into my daily life and rather than thinking about getting rid of the negative habits they have added up and brought me here.
I don’t bitch or gossip, I rarely get angry or impatient with myself or others and I rarely complain this is not because I am some “perfect pious person” but because I have learnt what makes me feel good and it feels good.
Anger, guilt, resentment, envy and frustration are wasted emotions if you what you want is to be happier. Gratitude, love and kindness work instantly.
This experiment was inspired by The Secret www.thesecret.tv but one thing in particular, not the Law of attraction but the simple fact that feeling good feels good.
Extraordinary things have come into my life since I started this, so much success on so many levels but the greatest thing of all has been that I am able to say I am so happy and nothing could be better than that.
No money, weight loss or career could have taken me away from the angry, anxiety and panic filled place I was last year.
Only I could, by accepting I had a choice. About how I felt and a willingness to take small steps each day in the direction of the person I wanted to be and the life I wanted to live.
It’s an amazing thing to feel how I feel and I am so excited to be writing my book.
My trouble shooting manual for happiness that I can share with the world.
