The Amount of Work is the Same
"The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same."
It's day 3 already! If you started on the first of January, today is the 3rd and it's also Stone's birthday! Happy 11th birthday Stone!
Did you know (according to Psychology Today) that it takes more energy to be angry than it does to be happy?? I read somewhere that it takes more muscles and effort to frown than it does to smile! So, making ourselves miserable is probably a bit more work than it is to make ourselves happy. Spend your energy wisely today!
Today's homework is to repeat and write today's affirmation at least 10 times and to place it around your home, in your car or at work so you can be reminded! Here it is:
"I now discover how wonderful I am. I choose to love and enjoy myself."
If you find that you're having a difficult time not being angry, or maintaining happiness, try the meditation below. It works great for me!
