Affirmation: In Pursuit of Happiness

Do you seek happiness? Are you looking around you for someone or something to come along that makes you happy? Most of us have things right in front of us every day that could make us deliriously happy if only we would let them. Could this be you?

Happiness doesn’t need to be created for us. It exists within us, and it’s up to us to choose happiness.

Happiness is attainable by anyone, so long as they want it. If you don’t want to be happy you won’t be. If you really want to change your life and find the happiness you’ve been searching for, you can do just that!

A great way to find happiness in each day is to give yourself permission to dwell on the positive instead of the negative. It takes practice, but once you become skilled at it, the rewards are pure joy!

Happiness Affirmations and You

Happiness affirmations are one tool you can use to help you attain happiness.

What are happiness affirmations? The idea is a simple one, really, and it all starts with a list of positive statements and the desire to change your life.

Affirmations work a lot like mental imagery techniques where you visualize yourself doing something great. Instead of being visual, though, affirmations are spoken.

This works because the words we speak have the power to evoke our emotions and activate our minds to accomplish great things. You could program your mind with positive thoughts that enable you to achieve your goals and live the life you dream!

For instance, when you’re having a moment where you doubt your right to be happy, you can say to yourself, “I find reasons to laugh every day,” or something as simple as, “I give myself permission to be happy.”

Every time you use these statements you’re reaffirming the thought and programming your brain to be happy when the opportunity presents itself.

When you’re always in pursuit of happiness, you may find that it’s elusive because, while you want to be happy, you may also give yourself reasons to be unhappy.

Reminding yourself of the negative aspects of your life or the things that aren’t perfect makes it hard to find true happiness.

Who Can Use Happiness Affirmations?

You can! With the help of affirmations, you can change your life, one happy thought at a time. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can integrate affirmations into your life and how soon they can make a change.

Some people may think that affirmations don’t apply to them because they’re so unhappy, but these positive statements can help people from every walk of life, no matter how bad things may seem.

When you use positive statements, you push out the negative thoughts, leaving no room for them in your life. When you remind yourself that you have a right and a reason to be happy, you’ll feel happier, and life will suddenly become so much more enjoyable.

Even if you think your life is so far gone that affirmations couldn’t possibly help you, you may be wrong, and end up full of happiness and joy! It’s certainly worth a try to see if you can change your life one statement at a time!
