The other things I try to do is tell myself the mantra of ‘happiness is a choice’. Sure, things can annoy, things can upset, things can make you grumpy or sad, but you can always choose to be happy. Once you have chosen to be happy (even when not truly feeling that way) you usually end up being happy – at least for that day. Then, of course, you adopt the same attitude next time. Easy? Not really; not always, but still better than the alternative.
That’s my little piece of advice for today. And now I’m off to the dentist and I’m choosing to be happy about it and seeing myself as smaller than a pinprick on an orange, so imagine how small my tooth is. Nothing to worry about!
