Is Happiness really a Choice?
"Happiness is a choice" is a very notable quotation by Domonique Bertolucci, who is a happiness expert and life coach. But what is the true intent of this line? Does this mean that just deciding to be happy henceforth will change our perspective and keep us genuinely happy? Well, we all know that's not the way things work.
Then is there any truth behind this? Yes, there is. Here's what I have realized over the years. This does not mean that you need to deliberately decide to be happy outta nowhere. The real and more sensible meaning of this is that your happiness actually is dependant on the life choices you make. It lies in the littlest of the things that decide the course of your daily activities in life. Now, this could be your career stream, work life, love and relationships or even what you will be eating for breakfast. Your happiness lies in these choices. Your happiness depends on what and who you decide to let in your life.
