“I know that I create my own reality with my thoughts, but sometimes when I’m sad I can’t seem to change my thoughts – even when I want to. How to I start to take control of my life?” ~ Evelyn, Jacksonville, FL
Dear Evelyn,
There was a time I felt the same way you did. But a family member I trusted “SNAPPED” me out of it. Soon I realized that the sadness I was feeling was just an emotion I was internalizing.
In other words, I was investing too much time into feeling sad until I clearly saw that I could choose a less depressing thought. I found I could reverse engineer my happiness.  I could focus on being happy.
Then one day I got it, as I turned the light switch on. That’s when I realized I controlled the switch. Just like I can control the light by turning it on or off… I can control my happiness by turning on my SMILE.
Every time I smiled, I felt happier. When I laughed, danced or sung a song, I felt even happier — and so can you when you do these things!
