Secrets to Happiness begin with the realization that Happiness means different things to diverse people. What makes one person happy, may make another sad, and another indifferent. Here’s the Happiness Place Song of the Day: Lovely Day by Bill Withers!
Take a moment to smile!
- good times
- time with friends
- getting your first car/new car
- a special date with a special someone
- cool life experiences
Make the corners of your face move upward if you have to. Then think for a moment, What makes you smile? Is it cat videos? Does watching funny movies make you smile? Is it romantic comedies that makes you happy inside? Are happy times with family and friends what makes you smile? Or, is there something else that brings a happy feeling to you? Does ice cream make you smile? How about shaved ice cones on a hot day on a beach on a tropical island?
What are things that you can begin today that will make you happy today?
What can you do right now, that will make today better for you? Count your blessings. Seriously, what good things are happening to you, or happening around you today? Are there friends, associates, opportunities, that you can utilize to achieve worthwhile goals for today? Even a good nap, sometimes alleviates pain. Going for a brisk walk, can help to clear the cobwebs from one’s mind. A simple snack, a funny cartoon, sometimes can lighten the mood.
What are things that you can plan for today that you can continue to enjoy tomorrow?
Success comes in a plan. Sometimes you need to set goals:
- Short term: From now to 3 months from now
- Mid term: From 3 to 6 months from today
- Long term: From 1 year into the future
Begin working on the brighter future of your own design, and your own imagination.
The secret to Happiness is inside you. You need to flesh it out. What will make you happy? Put pen to paper and chart your course. Choose, decide, and plan. Start today, and you’ll be living the dreams, you choose, and that you want.
