Happiness is your birth right

This was the message on my Yogi tea this morning and it got me thinking.

Happiness is your birth right.

Isn't it a wonderful sentiment? And isn't it true? Certainly in my belief system, we are here because we want to be here, to grow and to learn, to become the best people we can be. Our souls, our true selves, believe that we can become the best people we can be during this lifetime. Surely that includes happiness.

Happiness is your birth right.

Why is happiness so hard? Why is it so hard to hold on to? Why do so many of us question whether we deserve it, even after we've experienced it? I admit to these thoughts myself and I'm sure I'm not the only one who sometimes wonders exactly how happy I'll be allowed to be before it's taken away or before things go wrong.

Who is allowing me to be happy though? Who has the power to take happiness away?

Happiness is your birth right.

You're the only one who controls your own happiness. With your words, with your attitudes, with your actions. We are the ones who are creating our lives, either happy ones or less so.

So let's all decide to be happy, let's choose happiness and see if it follows.


Happiness is your birth right.

I hope this positive message brightens someone's day, like it did mine.

P.S. I LOVE Yogi tea! I drink so much more of it since I discovered that each tea bag comes with a message! :-)
