Happiness is our choice.
Sometimes not so great things happen, but being happy is a choice we make. We can choose to get sucked up and consumed by negativity or we can choose to rise above and learn from even the negative situations. Ultimately, our happiness is dependent on how we deal with situations and events.
As this post on the Magelica’s Voyage blog reminds us, it’s easy to feel happy when everything is going right. Even as an adult this is something I am trying to remind myself of. It’s so easy to be mad at others, hold grudges, feel sorry for ourselves or not take accountability of our actions. I’m trying to teach my Little One that her happiness is something that depends on her own decisions. This is hard, especially since this is something even I sometimes struggle with.
As a parent, I want to empower my child. I want her to believe in herself, in her dreams, and to in essence, be a happy person. Again, happiness is always a choice. It’s not always easy to explain this to a five year old, but Magelica’s Voyage helps children discover the power of imagination, gratitude, love, and believing in themselves.
Twitter Party Alert!
Let’s face it. There are so many sad, devastating, and horrific things going on in the world. Whether it’s local, close to home, or on the other side of the world, these stories are real. From kids bullying each other at school to conflict in countries far away from us, there is just so much negativity whenever we turn on the news. Little One has even experienced unpleasant situations with cohorts and I want to make sure she is empowered. Though my instinct is to protect my child from any kind of harm or hurt, I know that what I really need to do for her is to prepare her and teach her how to conduct her ‘self’.
