I want to be happy today… so when something negative happens, I will give it my compassion for a moment & then turn my thoughts, feelings & actions back to something positive… preferably, helping others. Happiness truly is a choice & we prove that to ourselves frequently. For example: some days my morning commute is miserable because I “choose” to focus on negatives & I quickly get frustrated. Other days it’s calm & relaxed, because I “choose” to think about positives. The goal for today: choose happiness… no matter what! Have a great day everybody!
“To be helpful is our only aim” ~Anon. We all have a responsibility to take care of ourselves… but what’s the best way to do that? I spent 18 years “looking out for #1” and my life sucked… I was unhappy & nothing ever seemed to turn out right. I spent the last 13 putting others first (to the best of my ability) and life has gotten infinitely better… I feel happiness & peace more often than not. The goal for today: do my best to put the welfare of others ahead of my own… because when I put God 1st, you 2nd & me 3rd, things seem to turn out Right! Have a great day everybody!
The Truth is not a convenience item that we get to conjure up when it suits us, and ignore when it doesn’t. We get to either live by the Truth… or not. When I do live by the Truth, good things happen & happiness follows. When I don’t live by the Truth, bad things happens & unhappiness follows. The Real Truth can only lead to happiness; so if I’m not happy… I’m not living True. The best part is that all I have to do to KNOW the Truth… is want it. The goal for today: find the Truth… apply it to your life to the best of your ability… & enjoy your happiness! Have a great day everybody!
I thought God wanted me to be alone, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to be with someone the Right way (without fear). I thought God wanted me to be poor, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to prosper the Right way (without dishonesty). I thought God wanted me to be boring, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to have fun the Right way (without selfishness). I thought God wanted me to be a doormat, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to defend myself the Right way (without resentment). The goal for today: know that God wants us to have it all… & we will, as soon as we start living Right! Have a great day everybody!
For years I would say things like “Happiness is an inside job”… & then I would claim that someone else (outside of me) was making me unhappy. We need to be clear on these things. We need to decide for ourselves… does happiness come from inside; or is it based on how the world outside of me acts & treats me? I no longer say things that sound smart, but mean nothing. We need to try to stop saying one thing & doing another. The goal for today: If I really believe happiness is an inside job… then I will stop trying to get it from outside! Have a great day everybody!
If I’m having a bad day, that doesn’t give me the right to treat other people poorly. Treating people poorly will never make me feel better… in fact, it always makes me feel worse in the end. If I focus on being genuinely kind, considerate, helpful & loving toward others when I’m having a bad day, my bad day will instantly turn around… guaranteed! No one on earth needs my misery, but I am certain that someone needs my kindness… so I want to focus on that. The goal for today: find someone to be kind to… & be guaranteed a good day! Have a great day everybody!
I was living wrong for many years… & as a result, I felt bad. Once I stopped living wrong, I felt a lot better… but then I realized there was more. When I started actually living Right, as opposed to just not living wrong, a whole new world opened up to me. If I keep moving forward… learning, growing & helping others… then my Happiness grows too. Don’t settle for temporarily feeling better; trust God, clean house, help others & feel your best! The goal for today: don’t just avoid doing wrong… go out of your way to do Right… & be supremely Happy! Have a great day everybody!
