Happiness is a choice

Happiness is a conscious choice of mind. A lot of situations - good and bad - happen in our lives every day, every hour. But it is our own decision how to react to those situations. You can get upset when something bad happens and decide to feel sad and miserable. Or you can look for something that you have learned from the situation, become thankful for that lesson and let go of the situation. And just choose to be happy.

My Happiness is triggered

I have registered for a series of video interviews called "Secret to Lasting Happiness". The interviews are organized and held by Bec Robbinson ( After each interview there is a little section "Happiness Trigger Snapshot". So I decided to fill in this section for myself as well.

Happiness Trigger Snapshot

As of this day, my Happiness is triggered when:

I see:: sunset of the roof of a neighbouring house
I hear:: birds singing
I smell:: freshly mowed grass
I feel:: tired after a work out
I taste:: chocolate cake
I think about:: my dream, which is now in the process of coming true and I am happy to be experiencing and feeling it.

What does your snapshot look like?:)

Get up and be happy

Be happy! It is so easy. Look around yourself! Do you see a beautiful sky above your head? Can you hear the birds singing? Do you have people who you love and care about? People who love and care about you? Can you breathe easily? Can you smile? Can you dream? Do you have a bite of food or a sip of water whenever you want to? Can you wake up every morning and tell yourself how much you love yourself? 
If you have answered "Yes" to all or even 1-2 of these questions, then you have absolutely everything to be happy. Stop waiting for the right time to come. The time is already here. The time to be happy. Right NOW.

my little journey

Hello, there!:) 
Well, I want to give you a little story how I came to this place where I am right now.

First of all let me intorduce myself. My name is Angelika, Angela, Lika, Angy, Engine, ... - I love to be called differently by different people. 

I have been on this journey of discovering myself and the happiness within me for a year and a half now. I remember in November 2010 my girlfriends and I went for a wonderful trip to Thailand, and it all began after that. When we came back, for a week or two I was very happy, smiling all the time, but then slowly I began to realize that somethig in my life is not right, that it's not how I want it to be. I couldn't realize what exactly that was, but I was feeling dissatisfied with my life. I wanted to know why I came to this planet, what the purpose of my life was. 

I watched the movie "Secret" and it cheered me up for a while. But soon that was not enough again. And I realized that due to some of my childhood experience, when I was constatntly feeling not good enough to be loved, I still couldn't love myself fully. I was always thinking that I wasn't perfect, because I don't have a perfecr body, I have a lot of extra kilos (pounds) to loose. And so I decided to make a little project, which I called "100 reasons why I love myself". One day I was surfing the Internet and came across a blog of a wonderful girl Luinae (her blog was first called "Slam", and than "Brighter than sunflowers") where she had done the exact same project. I started following her, and soon she gave a link to the wonderful event called "The World's Biggest Summit". And that's how I also began following a wonderful blog of Leonie Dawson (at that time known as Goddess Leonie). In the meantime I was reading a lot of books by Deepak Chopra, Adam J. Jackson, Brian Tracey, Robin Sharma, etc. and listening to audio books and affirmations by Louise Hay. I am still on my journey, and I do have good days and bad days. But my overall experience, my perception of everyday life has changed drastically. I do feel happy and satisfied with my life,  maybe not 100% of the time, but I am up to 60-70%. 

I will write more about my journey, about my thoughts and feelings. Now my goal is to start writing, to get my feelings out there. To share my experience. So be prepared to hear more from me:)
