Everyone wants to be happy. But some of us don't know how, or have forgotten how very simple it is to choose to BE content with "What Is."
In this week's episode co-hosts teZa and Carter Lord give examples of how they use the simple formula of "Awareness, Acceptance, Action" to identify when a shift has to occur. First comes the recognition that a change is necessary (the Awareness part, from paying attention to when we feel "bad'); next comes realizing things aren't going to change on their own (the Acceptance part); and only then, after going through the first two steps comes finally being able to make a decision to change (Action! Sometimes this "Action" part is to take no action, but that, too, is a conscious choice).
Of course all this about being happy is more challenging that it sounds. It has to be, right? No, really it's that simple. To choose to Be happy. Being able to make that choice only comes after awareness had awakened within ourselves.
Having patience and courage to change are beginning steps for anyone wishing to experience real and long-lasting happiness -- even in the middle of a worldwide pandemic with all its accompanying annoyances, aggravations, hardships and lacks.
We hope our discussion lightens the load many are feeling in these challenging times we're all going through together.
