One of my most favorite take aways from the book by Bronnie Ware called “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” is this one:
#5 ” I wish that I had let myself be happier.
This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.
Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.” from Bronnie’s book.

Journalling is a very powerful way to set a deliberate intention around your pursuit of happiness. Journalling is wide open and you can get creative with it. You may want to journal about your thoughts, desires and your dreams around happiness or things, place, memories, and people that make you happy. What you can write about is endless really.
