If I can choose to be happy, why would I ever be anything else?
- Kwanza Jones
It’s one of the biggest lies we tell ourselves. It’s such a ginormous, gargantuan, beast of a big lie that we often don’t even know we are telling ourselves this lie for years upon years until someone tells us what it is.
Well folks, here it is:
Many great teachers, wisdom traditions, philosophers, and psychologists have confirmed this truth. We are only slaves to our thoughts if we let them become our masters. Let’s repeat that, IF we let them… It’s a choice.
It is in fact liberating.
Have you ever tried? Do it right now if not. See what it feels like.
Think of a situation that typically bothers you, and now choose to find something redeeming and beautiful about the situation instead what you normally choose to see.
Instead of focusing on the clouds of your life, focus instead on the rainbow forming within the clouds. Ask yourself: What is the hidden opportunity here? What can I learn from this? How is this ordeal transforming me into a better version of myself?
In other words, YOU are the one who gets to decide if you’re happy, energized, and Supercharged.
Contrary to what we may have been taught by others or even ourselves, our life’s situations, dramas, and usual heartaches are NOT alien invaders who have come to torture us. We aren’t somehow cursed.
How we perceive our situation – the attitude we choose to take towards everything that comes our way – determines how we’ll feel about what comes our way. If you’re the science-y, reasonable type, here’s some scientific proof that this is indeed true, and one of the greatest discoveries ever made.
If you’re the visual, feel-y, artsy type, then look at it this way. You are the painter of every situation, and you can change the picture of your life – or body – any time you choose. Simply put, we are all the Bob Ross of our own lives, and we can choose to paint happy little trees in every situation if we so choose.
It’s like Bob always said, ANYBODY CAN PAINT.
And if we forget, that’s where community comes in. That’s why we’re here. We aren’t just sharing music and moves. We’re also laying the motivation on ya pretty thick.
Anyone can choose to move, choose to try, choose to see things positively, choose to believe your body is a glorious creation worth loving and enjoying, and choose to dance. You just have to choose to learn how.
