Self portrait Tuesday- Black and white 2


Happiness is a choice. I was reminded of that this weekend and when I was it suddenly seemed so strange that I could have ever forgotten. I have been so focused on tasks, changes and challenges that I was sinking a bit under them. I was focusing on the whole of the situation and feeling so small in light of it all. I was wishing for things to be different. I began to play those old negative and fear based tapes in my head again.

I think I finally changed the messages for good. It is such a simple concept and yet not always easy to apply. You have to do the work too.

I have been reminded that life is magic. We create our reality every moment and are the architects of our lives. The possibilities seem limitless to me again and I am full of enthusiasm for the future. I am achieving all that I have set out to do.

I know good things are manifesting in my life and that they will be beneficial for more people than just me. I can feel them growing about to break the surface just like the spring bulbs in my yard. I can sense the magic flowing into and expanding the beautiful things around me. I am filled with gratitude and anticipation of this wondrous thing that is life.

Love this portrait of you. And happiness is indeed a choice, but one we sometimes forget. Thanks for the reminder. I'm happy at the moment, but could laugh a little more, so that's what I'll do :)

You look absolutely stunning in this photo. I love your dark hair with your eyes. lovely!

As far as happiness being a choice, you're absolutely right. I sometimes have to remind myself to see the good, and let things go.

I'm glad to hear the good things are in your life. You deserve it darlin.

Be well.

Thank you for sharing this uplifting, affirming post. I need frequent reminding that I can choose happiness.

That is one of the loveliest and most emotionally tender portraits I have seen for a very long time. What a beauty you are inside and out.
