    Totally agree with your point that happiness is a choice which all can make. We can always find 100 reasons to be sad or frustrated about. But where is sadness leading us to? As someone has said that it takes more energy and muscles to frown than smile :). So one should spend energy wisely ;).

  2. Glad to see you still have so much to be joyful about.. Thank you for sharing this and the 100 Happy Days challenge!

    I really like this post a lot. I have been in the mind of happiness is a choice for a while now. I don’t always succeed but it gives me a better and different perspective. I try to approach things from a place of gratitude and it works most of the time because when outlining all the things and people I have to be grateful for it’s hard to still be upset. You are so right about making that choice.

      Thank you Porscha. I am glad you could relate. Yes, things upset all of us but if we never choose to get up, we will be always knocked down. So it’s important to make an effort. Glad you stopped by!

    it indeed is a choice.. but when ego or other things come in between envy jealousy et etc etc then that choice becomes difficult …

    True Parul, happiness is a choice! And though I am away from home, our first Diwali abroad, I a grateful to the things I do have. I went and bought diyas, starting our own traditions and making the kind of change I want to!

    Wishing you a very Happy Diwali! Love!

    Very true, Parul. When we adopt that attitude in most things in life, it becomes a habit. This year I am celebrating Diwali differently – by giving. Take care!

    And here I am.. all alone, thinking about last Diwali when he was with me! My husband is away for work and I am missing out on celebrating all the festivals. I’m just a sad lil’ puppy! 🙁

      Aww! Similar case here but I went to my friend’s and had a lovely time. Also skyped with VT, showed him the pooja and it was not as bad. Smile! It’s important to see what’s positive 🙂

    This is so very true, and so very, very well said! I am sorry you’re not with family during the holidays this year, but really admire the attitude of happiness you are choosing to take. All the very best to you. 🙂
