Wake up & think positive
" One of the first steps to any relationship is probably saying hello, so why not say hello to happiness and form a relationship with happiness?" NosaJ
I use the phrase one of the first steps, because the thought of saying hello may precede the act of saying hello and almost everything begins as a thought, but some things we do not give much thought to and just do. Some things are automatic and almost divine, like a smile from someone or to someone as if it was a message from the universe to cheer them up or to cheer you up. Maybe that person smiling at you for no reason is the universe saying hello.
With or without the preceding seed of thought, there is usually some intention or outcome behind saying hello to anyone. It may be the intention of a short term or a long term relationship. The outcome may also be a brief and disappointing relationship, a brief and wonderful affair, a long and turbulent relationship or a long and wonderful relationship that transcends all trials and tribulations.
How many times have you wished that you had used a particular opportunity to say hello to someone but did not? How many times have you walked into a room, a class room, a shop, an office, an interview and said a positive hello to a particular person that has led to some new opportunity, some happiness or a lot of happiness?
By saying that simple but sincere `Hello' you can create some great opportunities that would not have been available to you, if you had not said hello. It is also not just about saying hello but the hello being packed with positive intention and energy. Anyone can say hello but each hello has more meaning with more of a positive intent . It can be a positive and powerful hello or just a courteous hello. If you have been to a retail store, you may have heard that kind of hello which has no positive energy and the intention is simply to comply with corporate procedures. Make yours positive and powerful.
As simple as it is to say hello to anyone, so it is simple to say hello to Happiness. It lies within you and all around you and not just with anyone. Combine them all and you find more happiness. Yes it is a crazy world stacked with negativity, chaos and some sadness, but the choice of `Hello happiness' remains yours always. The more happiness that you do have, the less the chaos and the negativity can affect you. You will always be touched by sadness but the choice of `Hello happiness' will also always return you to happiness. It is like having a choice of friends to say hello to cheer you up when you need them or just because you want to say hello.
I woke up this morning and I decided to see the sun rise. I did and it because I wanted to say hello to the Universe. I wanted to say hello to a good day ahead and that hello will make it a good day, or at the very least a good start to the day. It just made me happier. It made me happier because it is a beautiful sight and I have the opportunity to see it. It made me happier because I did something I wanted to do.
We wake up too often and we do not say hello to happiness. We wake up and do not follow the ` Happiness intent' We wake up and do not sometimes even say hello to those we care about or love. Without that hello, a void takes the place of the caring hello and bridges to intimacy and or happiness burnt.
So wake up and say hello to who you are, to where you are, to friends, lovers, family and to happiness. Wake up , get to work , and say a sincere hello to work and to colleagues and spread some happiness. If you work from home, do the same or if you drive around a lot, say hello and spread some happiness. Wake up and say hello to Happiness.
