Many times, we allow the circumstances in our lives to dictate how happy we ought to be. Other times, we give people control over our happiness. To thrive in life, you must understand that, “Happiness is a daily choice.”
These are words of Bozoma Saint John. In an episode of The Thrive Global Podcast with iHeart Radio and Sleep Number, Thrive Global founder and CEO Arianna Huffington, Bozoma shared how she was determined to stay happy despite facing several moments of grief and loss at different points in her life, starting with the loss of her first child on the day the was born.
Bozoma knew she couldn’t allow the loss, despite being so painful, to stop her from being the best mother to her second daughter.
“I choose to exhibit my happiness, my joy and the carefree nature with which I move in the world, so that she can have that kind of balance and foundation.”
After dealing with the deaths of two people dear to her, she learned that happiness is a daily choice.
“It’s not like one day you wake up and magically you feel better…showcase how you work through and live with grief.”
