Best Affirmations for Happiness

Drawing from my experience and my writing, here are four best affirmations for happiness.

On Happiness

Happiness is not a thing or a goal, and can come and go within the unexpected motions of life.

Happiness is a choice in how I interpret the conditions of my life.

Happiness is a state of being where I am excited about me now and what I can become in the next moment.

An all-encompassing sense of well-being and good fortune.

Vital, centered, grounded, at ease.

Affirmation #1:

Affirmation #1

I willingly let go of all blocks to experiencing true happiness in my life.

Make a list: What makes me happy?

For everything on this list, add whatever I perceive as an obstacle for each item.

Now look at each obstacle and ask myself: Is this block truly worth my happiness?

Letting go of blocks is a choice to live life.

Letting go of blocks empowers more choice.

The result: happiness.

Begin again: What makes me happy?

The path of transformation moves forward with deeper clarity as blocks are released.

In this moment, my choice:

I willingly let go of all blocks to experiencing true happiness in my life.

Affirmation #2:


My happiness is my responsibility.

Whatever is happening in my life, how I choose to respond is my responsibility.

I don’t have control over the motion of the world around me.

But I do have choice in this moment of my behavior, my response, my action.

As choice fuels happiness, happiness blooms within the clarity of my responsibility for me.

For clarity moving forward, today I claim:

My happiness is my responsibility.

Affirmation #3:


I happily live the life I create for myself.

Why show up in my life with negative thoughts and beliefs?

More negativity?

I can release whatever pushes my life toward negativity.

This isn’t about never feeling negative, distressing emotion.

This is about not getting bogged down in the mire of misery.

Nor is it about ignoring or denying challenge and misfortune.

Instead, I harvest learning from challenge and adversity, happily knowing I didn’t give in.

In transformative strength, I claim for myself:

I happily live the life I create for myself.

Affirmation #4:


In trust, I live my life happily aligned with my inner truth.

My inner truth is in constant motion as I live and grow and experience life.

Transformation fuels this shift.

Alignment is an experience of resonance in the moment.

Alignment emerges and I feel vital, centered, grounded – full of well-being, ready to face the next moment whatever may appear.

With truth and trust more firmly planted within me, I can trust that my choice comes from truth and my soul’s desire.

I don’t second guess, instead I choose:

I live my life happily aligned with my inner truth.
