Would it surprise you to know that feeling happy is not dependent on your circumstances? Yeah, I know. All the stuff happening around you has a big effect on your mood right now. Like your neighbor playing his music too loud and making you want to eat the wallpaper.
But apart from your mood. Your deep down happy feeling about who you are, well, that’s actually a choice you make every day. Uh-huh.
You don’t wait for “happy” to happen.
Instead, you practice happy by doing things that feel good. And you sprinkle those feel-good moments throughout your day. So that “happy” becomes a summation of all those little moments.
We think being happy is the hard part of our lives. But it’s not like that. Being happy is easy. It’s feeling worthy that’s the hard part. “Happy” will always be fleeting if you can’t feel worthy.
This is how it works:
• You’ve gotta accept that you always deserve to feel good.
• You’ve gotta feel worthy enough to allow yourself to feel good.
It seems so simple, doesn’t it? Well, it may be simple to understand. But it’s pretty hard to carry out. That’s where you gotta set the intention to practice happy every day. And that’s why I’ve got my own slogans to remind me. And they can do the same for you:
HAPPY MY WAY
BORN TO BE FAB
Every Twinki-Winki product slogan is a simple expression of the same life-affirming attitude:
All the good you want in your life starts by feeling good about yourself.
This is what I like to call “kiss-my-butt attitude.” As in, I am good enough, and if you don’t like me as I am, you can kiss my butt!
Wanna know how it works? It all begins with a question and a little imagination…
What if you didn’t feel overwhelmed for a change?
Imagine standing at the bathroom mirror brushing your teeth, doing your usual dental hygiene thing. And then you stop and take a closer look at that person looking back at you. And as you see the words on your favorite slogan t-shirt in the mirror, you take a deep breath and nod. Yep, HAPPY MY WAY it is. You’re shrugging off those worry lines, white hairs, and puffy eyes. It’s all good. Because even when you’re feeling like life is passing you by, you still love being alive. Your way. Amen, with sprinkles on top.
What if you could start your day ignoring all the housework like some kinda movie star?
Imagine looking around your home and all you see is true perfection. Marie Kondo and IKEA have got nothing on you. Yep, all your furniture is sparkling white and your house smells like cinnamon buns. You can make this happen by cleaning all day. For the rest of your life. Or… you could throw on your favorite slogan t-shirt instead. And strut your BORN TO BE FAB attitude all over the place. Because you know fabulous is as fabulous does. And fabulous might not have a squeaky clean house, but she has her cappuccino before she does the dishes. Oh, yeah.
Wouldn’t it be grand if you woke up convinced things are gonna be easy for a change?
Imagine you’re sipping away at your yummy morning java and starting your day with a big smile. There you are getting your daily dose of social media while toasting your sesame bagel. You’re even tumble-drying your delicates and Roomba-ing the living room. You’re amazing, a multi-tasking genius in your prime. Ah, take that last hot sip. Treasure this moment. Because you’re about to stub your little toe as you run to save your burning bagel right before you get the hiccups. But heck, it’s the way you start your day that counts. And you started yours feeling JUST DUCKY, just like it says right there on your favorite coffee mug.
What if feeling happy didn’t depend on anything but your attitude?
Imagine flopping onto your bed at the end of a grueling day. But right before you smack into your bed face-first, you catch a glimpse of that stylish throw pillow. The one that says WHOOPEE. It’s your little reminder to bask in that happy-to-be-alive feeling for even just a moment. Because no matter how lopsided your day, if you can still say WHOOPEE then it can’t be all bad.
There is no right or wrong way for you to be happy. Attitude is everything.
