I’m a happy lady. I didn’t get to be this happy by accident or by luck; it was a lot of work. Strange isn’t it? That for me being happy took and still takes a lot of work. Maybe a better way to put it is: In order to be happy, I need to take an active role. I know some people are naturally happy and they know how to be the happy person they were meant to be. I’m not one of those people – I tend to let the negative influences of this earth affect me too easily.
To counter this, I actively seek happiness and I do my best to spread happiness. Happiness doesn’t cost money just willingness to be happy. I was willing. I am willing. Are you?
At the end of each day, I think over my day and I acknowledge the wonderful things, people, events and situations that happened that day. It’s wonderful to have my mind full of these awesome moments as I fall asleep. It also makes it easy to wake up in the good mood. Speaking of waking up to a new day; begin your new day saying thank you for the wonderful day that is about to happen. This helps set up your day on a positive note.
Is this something you are willing to do?
Happy people are connected to others: friends, family, co-workers, etc. Don’t get me wrong, others cannot make you happy. Only you can do that. It is just that I have noticed that happy people tend to be close to others; shallow relationships just are not part of the mix. In my case I treasure my love ones.
Are you willing to connect with others; to develop close relationships?
Although I believe in spreading happiness, I’m not actively spending each and every moment trying to find ways to make someone else happy. I’m just seeking to live each day with a heart full of joy, peace, compassion, and universal love for others. That’s the recipe that equals happiness for me. Somehow, being happy seems to spillover and before I realize it I’m spreading happiness.
What is your recipe for happiness?
Life is good! God is great! All is right in my world!
