Everything I need to be happy.

I am filled with gratitude when I consider how much I have. I have everything I need to feel happy and fulfilled. I recognize that happiness is a state of mind. I can choose to be happy under any conditions. Happiness is my natural state.

I may sometimes think that I require more money or popularity to feel more blissful. But then I realize that happiness is something that I always have. It is my desire for meaningless things that make happiness elusive. I remind myself to pay attention to the meaningful people and activities in my life.

When I am feeling unhappy, I pay attention to my thoughts. Unhappiness and negative thoughts reinforce each other. I focus on the positive and quickly return to a state of happiness. I am in control of my thoughts and attention.

The wonderful people in my life make me happy. I can ignore those that create negative feelings. I enjoy positive relationships and find them to be a source of support and inspiration in my life.

I already possess everything required to be happy. Happiness is my birthright.

Today, I am filled with happiness. I am grateful for the many blessings I already enjoy in life. I am rededicating myself to enjoying my life. I have everything I need to be happy.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Has any possession ever brought me lasting happiness? Why not?

2. What am I grateful for right now? What else could I choose to be grateful for?

3. How much time do I waste regretting the past or worrying about the future?
