Why 'Choose To Be Happy?' - 16 Reasons Why!!!
1. Every new day is another chance to change your life - If you have dreamed of some things that you would like to have in your life, today is a great opportunity to do even some small things that will take you to the path that will take you to your dreams.

2. This day is an opportunity to be better than yesterday - If you pursuit every day to be better than yesterday, your self esteem and happiness will increase. Don't try to be perfect, just focus on being a little bit better person in every way, every day, and you will achieve great things and happiness in the long run.

3. You can be who you want to be right now - It doesn't matter what your situation looks like, you can start being who you want to be today, no matter how your life is at the moment. You don't have to sell your house to be adventurous or have more money to share it more. Just ask yourself: "How can I be that person I want to be in this moment?"

4. The glass is both half-empty and half-full - Your attitude and thoughts define your reality, so you can choose how you see your life starting today. Finding compassion even for the worst in human behavior, and working to inspire the best will make you happy, too.

5. Happiness comes from your own actions - You can do anything you want today to make your life better if you just decide to do so. You can spread joy around you, even if you don't have everything you want. Giving joy to other people will make your day happier, too.

6. You have great friends - You have good friends in your life that you can share your inner feelings with. If you don't have that many close friends, today is a great opportunity to make new friends.

7. You can learn a new thing today - Learning new skills is very rewarding and helps us to proceed in life. It is possible to learn something new every day, so start thinking what you would like to learn today and just find ways to learn it. Now when we have the Internet, it is so easy to learn anything by utilizing search engines.

8. The summer is coming soon - If the summer isn't coming in the next months where you live right now, it will always come in one year anyway. Remember the feeling of warm sun on your skin, the smell of coconut sunscreen, not having to wear a coat even at night, sunglasses, freckles, cold beer, the beach, tan lines, the smell of freshly cut grass and the faces of happy people? Thinking about summer and the good times you will have then makes you feel good.

9. You are alive - This is the first day of the rest of your life. Nobody lives forever and we really don't know when it is our time to go, so why not try to enjoy our lives today like it would be the last day of our life? Enjoy your day to the fullest and make other people notice it too.

10. You are already complete - Realizing that you don't really have to be anything else than what you already are, there will be a joyous energy behind what you do. The realization of the fact that you are a perfect human being on a deeper level already right now, without all the things you'd like to have in the future, will make you happier and less needy.

11. You are unique - It doesn't matter whether you are introverted or outgoing, book smart or street smart, technical or creative and so on - You are the only person in the world who is just like you and the only opportunity to share with the world what you can and what you are.

12. You have an influence on the world - It doesn't matter whether you influence millions of people or just mean the world to one person in this world - your impact is still powerful, whether you realize it or not.

13. You can change the world - No one can change the world instantly, but every one of us can change someone's world today. Do you have a friend or a relative that you haven't contacted for a long time? You can make someone happy today just by making a single phone call. If you make changing peoples lives a habit, you can eventually change the whole world.

14. You can feel emotions - Emotions make our lives worth living and every day is a great opportunity to have great feelings. Even the sad feelings and emotions are good because they make us feel alive and after those emotions the good days will feel much better.

15. You can change your perceptions - It is possible to view the bad things that happen to you as things that will make you stronger and the obstacles that come on your way as opportunities to learn. It doesn't matter what happens to us - all that matters is our perception of what is happening.

16. You have accomplished great things - Even if you don't remember them all the time, there are many great things that you have already accomplished in your life. Try to remember them everyday and be proud of them.

First let me start off by saying that it was a pleasure having Mr. James as our agent. Any questions we had, he answered them on the fly. The decor of the apartment was outstanding. Very modern, surround sound Sony system, which was a plus because i love music, and the bed was soooo comfortable. The best part about our stay was the area. It's very centrally located. There is a restaurant about three blocks away, can't remember the name right now but i believe it starts with a J, their food was amazing. As a matter of fact, it was the best food i had during my entire stay. Also i must add that the people that live in the complex were so friendly. I met so many wonderful people. On another note, unfortunately during my stay there was a water drought so i was unable to go for a swim in the poopl, however, i did take a tour and it's huge. It looks pretty deep so if you love to swim you will definitely enjoy. Overall, i had a wonderful time and enjoyed the space. This will be my go-to place whenever i am visiting Jamaica. Mr. James, if you are reading this, my husband and I couldn't thank you enough for making our stay so delightful and until next time stay blessed and continue doing what you do. You Rock!!!!

Owner's reply:

Whoooooaaaaa! Kwanna and Ambrose are what I refer to as your "Perfect Guests". This 'power couple' from NYC remained with us for eight (8) wonderful days despite the challenges presented and no doubt enjoyed every minute of it. In my opinion, Kwannas' energy is comparable to that of a nuclear power generating plant while Ambrose seems more laid back and easy going. "A man with dreams needs a woman with vision". Simply put...They were both phenomenal! I look forward to hosting Kwanna & Ambrose

I stayed at "Choose to be Happy" for 4 days in November,2014. I totally enjoyed it there. The apt was nicely done with a contemporary flare. Great colors. The area was quiet and safe. The owner was very gracious and very attentive. Great welcome package of cereals and juices. Was happy to stay here. Will definitely stay here again.

Owner's reply:

WOW! It was in deed an honour and an absolute pleasure having GLO stay with us whilst she was visiting her family members in Kingston. GLO was simply an AWESOME house guest. Prior to her arrival and during the period she stayed at "CTBH"; she communicated exceptionally well with us. She was neat, respectful, observant of house rules and an all-round good 'spirited' human being. I'd recommend her 100% as a house guest to any TripAdvisor host. We'd be happy to welcome her back anytime!
