12 Reasons To Be Happy Right Now

nourish your spirit Feb 22, 2023

Earlier this week I found myself in a funk. I was caught in a negative spiral, comparing myself to others, feeling like I don't know what my purpose is, wanting to be "further along" or have more direction. 

Then it occurred to me, I was looking at my life through the lens of negativity, holding myself away from my own happiness. It made me realize that I always have a choice in every moment.

We get to decide how we want to view ourselves, how we want to view the world, and how we want to view life. Our life experience is just a mirror of our own perception projected outwards. It takes courage to liberate ourselves from our own negative perception, but if we are brave enough to liberate ourselves, life can become a more beautiful experience. 

Today, I am sharing 12 Reasons To Be Happy Right Now, to inspire you to take those foggy lenses off, and choose to see things differently.


1. You Are Alive: You Exist

Have you ever stopped to think about how amazing it is that you exist? That you have been chosen to experience life? Just the fact that you are here and exist is a reason to smile and celebrate!


2. You Woke Up Today: You Get To Experience Another Day

Each day is a new opportunity for you to reinvent yourself, to choose something new, to become whoever you want to be, and to experience another day.


3. Your Body Breathes And Operates On Its Own

How crazy is it that your body just knows what to do and how to operate? It knows to breathe without you consciously thinking about it. It knows how to restore itself, how to heal itself, and how to work in perfect harmony to keep you healthy.


4. Your Basic Needs Are Met

If you woke up today with a roof over your head with basic things like shelter, heat, and running water, you are blessed!


5. You Have The Ability To Smile

Take a moment to smile right now. The fact that you can choose to smile in any moment, at anyone or for any reason, is a reason in itself to do it!


6. All Options Are Available To You Today

The only limitations you have are the one you've placed on yourself based on the story you've been telling. The truth is, you have unlimited options available to you today. You truly can choose exactly how you want your day to go today.


7. You Will See What You Ask To See

There is something called the reticular activating system (RAS) in our brain-- this is the part of our brain designed to bring into our experience what we ask for. 

Example: Have you ever had a friend tell you about a specific type of car, and then after you talk to them you start to see that car everywhere you go? This is your RAS bringing that car into your experience.

This is more amazing and mind-blowing that it sounds. This literally means you can ask for whatever you want to be brought into your experience today and you will start to see it. How amazing is that?

Want to see people being kind to each other? Want to see happy people? Want to see a particular thing show up? Ask and watch what happens!


8. You Get To Be Anyone You Want To Be Today

There is no reason why you can't completely reinvent yourself today. Who do you want to be? Ta-da! You're it! You don't need permission from anyone but you. 


9. You Are Living In A Time Where Anything You Want To Learn Is Available At Your Fingertips

Most of us have access to SO much information right at our fingertips. With the click of a few buttons or a simple Google search, we can learn a new skill, take a new course, or learn about something new just for the fun of it. What a time to be alive!


10. You Have Incredible Gifts To Share With The World

We are each put here for a very specific reason, and with particular gifts to share with the world. You are not an exception. You have incredible insight, gifts, skills, and knowledge to share with the rest of us. And we want to see and hear it!


11. You Are A Powerful Creator

We are all just little shards or threads of divine consciousness (God, The Universe, Consciousness) playing out in human form. Everything you see outside of you was created by you. The best part is? You get to create anything you want. 

Don't like what you see? You can disassemble and rebuild it better. 

Love what you see? You get to keep expanding and keep creating.


12. You Have One Thing That Can Never Be Taken From You: Your Attitude / State Of Being

Your attitude about life is yours. No one can ever take that away from you. No matter what is happening on the outside, you can always choose your internal state of being. This is both empowering and a reason in itself to choose to be happy!
