How to Always Choose Happiness Even During Tough Times⁠

“We all have the desire to live happy lives. However, the effort and personal work we have to do to attain this desire can be challenging for us. Is happiness a choice? Yes. But being happy requires more than just making the choice that “I choose to be happy”. Sustaining happiness in your life takes commitment, courage, a deep understanding of who you are, and knowing your purpose in life; and this does not happen overnight. It is a lifelong journey. By choosing to embrace happiness into your life, you are taking responsibility for your own contentment. When you live a happy life, you have more resilience; your confidence and self-belief flourishes. And this enables you to successfully navigate your way through the curveballs (the tough times) that life throws at you.”
