It’s super easy for us to choose fear and spiral into ego misery. This video is about making happiness our primary choice. Each moment offers us us the opportunity to choose peace instead of fear. In this video I’ll guide you to use the affirmation: “Happiness is a choice I make.”

  1. I love this! I remember reading an interview with Drew Barrymore a while back that she has “Happiness is a Choice” hanging in her office and it really made me contemplate such. A simple statement but resonates deeply.Mahalo for this friendly reminder~ I choose love and happiness today.

  2. Thank you Gabby!
    I developed a similar default as the friend you mentioned and have been catching myself hamster wheeling negative thoughts all day today. As I was sitting here reflecting on this nasty little habit… I received the email notification for this vlog. Perfect timing! I believe spirit was using your vlog to reaffirm that I am on the right path. I feel at ease again after your reminder that this is an on-going process and not a quick fix 🙂

  3. This could not have come at a better time, thank you Gabby. You always have a choice to be happy and grateful, though you’re right that it takes conscious effort to do that every day and every moment.

  4. Thanks for this message – I resonated with it especially because Gabby and I were wearing matching sweaters coincidentally!

  5. Your friend reminds me of myself… the part about being aware but still reacting in a way that’s not from the heart… this video is exactly the reminder I needed today! Thx a bunch!!!!

  6. I so needed this today, thanks Gabby. After having a totally S*&T day, I watched this and my mindset changed. 🙂

  7. Just to add…I think that where your friend may be stuck is that he carries a subconscious belief that he does not ‘deserve’ to feel love.
    I know that I spent many years ‘working’ to be happy, but I always returned to a base level of misery. I tried to apply the conscious choice for happiness, but my ego would overwhelm me with negative thoughts and I felt powerless to stop them.
    I recently discovered that I was carrying a belief of ‘not being good enough’ and it always short-circuited my lessons. Now, I affirm my worthiness and am cultivating self-love following Louise Hay’s guidelines from her book, “You Can Heal Your Life”.
    And I must tell you, I finally understand why it was so difficult for me to maintain my life’s flow, and it was because it felt like I had no right to feel love on a deep level.
    Perhaps this is why your very intelligent and hardworking friend seems to be unable to chose love in some areas of his life.

  8. Thanks Gabby, I have been watching your vlogs for a while now but have never commented… just wanted to say thank-you for the weekly spiritual reminders! I choose happiness in this moment and will strive to choose happiness in every moment. xo

  9. Life is hard. Relationships are hard. I get stuck in pain sometimes. I’ve been working so hard at fixing my broken pieces. Thank you for this message. I needed the cyber hug today.

  10. Gabby,
    When I first saw you I thought on this video I thought OMG she’s so cute…by the end I thought…She looks like the angel she is! Thanks for another reminder that happiness is my choice.

  11. Hi Gabby,

    I was fairly miserable yesterday and I watched your vlog Happiness is a choice I make and I was happy the whole day. Today I wanted to go on with making that choice but the feeling had gone away. So, I watched your video again and I hereby vow to watch it every time I start to feel miserable. Thank you for the inspiring words!

  12. Hey Gabby, also a thought, did your friend ever have his astrological chart done? Not that we are limited by it, but it can shed light on why we have certain tendencies. For example, I believe Marianne Williamson is a Capricorn moon, and people who have this tend to go to the darker thoughts and really have to do the spiritual work to get out of it.

  13. Thank you for this post, Gabby! This is definitely something I needed to hear as I seem to cycle back to the ego and fear at every turn. I woke up this morning with so much anxiety and I almost chose to stay stuck in that mindset for the day.
    After watching this vlog I realized I can choose to let my ego get the best of me with it’s constant chatter or I can tell it “happiness is the choice I make”. Thank you for this reminder. 🙂

  14. Hey Gabby
    I have to tell you that watching this video has really made me remember that happiness is a choice. We all have the negative in our lives and have those people that can rub us the wrong way. But in all circumstances we can choose happiness over fear. It feels amazing to hold that power within yourself and in your life 🙂
    Thank you for this, your great at what you do.

  15. Wow,Gabby,that was great! Love you too and I love that you share what God gave you-your ability to make others feel and be a better person.Thank you 😉
