Exploring and Encouraging a Healthy Life Marked with Joy

Happiness Question #9


You may remember that I recently introduced a new blog category called “Dr. Saye’s Top Ten Happiness Questions,” and started with Happiness Question #10.  The questions are based on the work I am doing this quarter with my English 123 (first-year composition) classes at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design).

Well, here’s Happiness Question #9:

Do I realize that I can always choose to think a thought that feels better?

We really can.  IF we make the effort.  For example, we’re sick, really sick.  A better-feeling thought might be: “I’ve been sick before, and my body has gotten well.”  Or, “I’m so thankful for aspirin (or medicine).”  Does this make sense?  Either of those thoughts feels better than, “I am on my death bed.”

When we grasp the truth of Happiness Question #9, we reclaim our power, our authority.

So ask it!  And feel better.
