Think a minute…Imagine there was a safe, legal drug that not only made you feel good, but was actually good for you. And best of all, it was free! A former drug addict named William Burroughs says: “Every feeling you get on drugs you can get without drugs.” People who get high on marijuana often say they can laugh at anything. But they’re wrong in thinking that the fun comes from the marijuana. It’s actually their own ability to laugh and have fun which they already had. So all the drug problems of harming our bodies and brains, hurting our families and relationships, ruining our jobs and careers, just are not worth it.
The fact is we were born with powerful chemicals already in our bodies that can give us these great feelings and highs. But how do we activate and enjoy these amazing great feelings? Simply by choosing to. Did you know that fun and happiness is actually a choice? When we choose to be happy, to laugh, to have a positive attitude, and to love others, then our whole body chemistry changes. We get new energy, confidence, and a totally new perspective on our situation and life. We just feel better in every way.
Victor Frankl’s true story tells about the horrible pain and torture the Jews experienced every day in a Nazi prison camp. They were treated even worse than animals! Yet Victor Frankl and some of his fellow Jews chose to have fun and enjoy every day. They simply chose to create their own life of happiness by seeing the good in each other and the world, even with all the evil, painful things being done to them.
A successful man says that you can make any kind of job you do fun. He says: “If it’s not fun, then you’re not doing it right.” Real fun and happiness only comes when you choose to change your mind and attitude. And Jesus Christ, Who gave you the ability to be happy, can help you start changing today. Just ask Him to take full charge of your thinking and way of living every day. Jesus is the One Who can help you bring out all the fun and happiness He put inside you—no matter what problems or pain you’re facing. That’s the way you can live every day with a natural high.
