Miranda Kerr reveals her life mantra

MIRANDA Kerr chooses to be happy.

The Victoria's Secret model - who announced last month she had split from husband Orlando Bloom - always tries to see the positive side of the things that happen to her.

She said: "Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, 'Oh, I can't believe it's so cold,' or you can say, 'Oh, wow, this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater.' No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?"

And the 30-year-old beauty - who has two-year-old son Flynn with Orlando - cheers herself up when she is feeling down by "jumping for joy".

She told the December issue of SELF magazine: "If I'm having a challenging moment, I jump for joy. Literally. After a minute, I feel better, and after a few minutes, I'm really happy.

"Everything else just drops off. It gets me out of my head and into my body, and it makes me feel present."

And Miranda also has a life mantra to help maintain her positive attitude.

Explaining the mantra, she said: " 'I am a being of light and love, and I radiate that to everyone I meet.' It helps me keep things joyful."
