People often ask if happiness is a choice? The reality is yes it is. We are all born with the natural state of happiness as our default function. The most important question new-age thinkers are asking is not if happiness is a choice, but what can we do to make it a reality?
11 Reasons why happiness is a choice:
1) Every emotion is a choice
Every feeling you have during every moment of your life is a choice. The most important question you can ask yourself is what am I choosing to feel?

2) There are no victims in life
Victimhood is not a real place and it is the place of the unenlightened. Victims project their lack of power onto someone else while they refuse to take responsibility for creating their reality.

3) Choose what you want
If you do not choose love, then you will never feel it. If you do not choose happiness, then you will never feel it. Happiness is actually a choice on every level. It is a choice to be happy right now and not live in the past or future. It is a choice to love what we have now instead of focusing on what we don’t have.

4) Pain and suffering are an illusion
We all experience a range of emotions. Misery, grief, anger, jealousy and fear are examples of emotions that are misused. They are simply the human response to a condition-based reality. With awareness and understanding comes the choice to change our perspective and thus change our experience.

5) It is never too late to change our perspective
By simply altering our perception, we can change the frequency of our energy and shift it entirely. Happiness is a choice, but it is also a practice. When we are aware that we are focusing on the negative or experiencing a lack, then it becomes an opportunity to learn and grow.

6) We are all equally powerful
Why would you choose to live as a victim when you are as powerful as you allow yourself to be? We were given the most powerful tool in existence and it is our mind. Our minds automatically project our thoughts onto reality so it is important that we guard our minds with positive empowering thoughts. This can only happen when we acknowledge that we have the power and ability to do so.

7) Happiness is free
When you are a victim, rich or poor, you are still a slave. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and the choice to use this time wisely. It is up to us to create the reality that we want instead of choosing to feel down because we have less than someone else.

8) I am always right here, right now
The past and future are made up. Always be in the present moment. Practice appreciating what we have, instead of dwelling on what we don’t have. When we choose happiness over unhappiness, then we are being happy for no reason at all.

9) Happiness is right here in the present moment
If you’re not happy now, then when are you going to be? It is impossible to be happy and not right here right now. Whether you realize it or not, this second is your only chance at happiness because the past and future are only made up.

10) Happiness is a state of mind and therefore it can be created
When we are aware that we are projecting negative emotions into the world, then we can begin to change our perspective. Even in the face of the most challenging situation, you can choose happiness. Choose to be grateful for what you have. Choose to feel appreciated for who you are. Even in the face of tragedy, you have a choice.
