Letters to Self: Happiness is a Choice

Letters to Self is a Self-help series written by M. J. Joachim, designed to encourage and promote healing and self-awareness for those who read it.



Dear Self,


Happiness is a choice, one you gladly choose to give yourself each day. It is a conscious effort to wake up and smile, regardless of how much negativity comes your way.


We all deserve to be happy. We deserve to give ourselves the gift of happiness, in spite of the trials, tribulations and problems we face in life. The alternative is misery, and to find things to complain and whine about. It’s not who you are, nor who you were born to be.


I’m glad you choose to be happy. I’m glad you live for today, knowing that each and every day matters in your life. It’s all you can do, and it can be a very powerful thing indeed.


Love,


Self
