I once had a friend who told me that being happy was a conscious choice for her. ‘Every day,’ she said, ‘I wake up and make the conscious decision to be happy’. This may sound simplistic, however, mindset affects everything. Remaining positive allows you to keep your vibration at a higher level, which enables you to remain open to the good. I find that when I get down, it helps when I can find something to feel good about; Even something simple like how soft my cat feels, when I pet her, or how beautiful the weather is, helps. This allows me to shift my mood more quickly.
