Way to Happiness 

The way to happiness: keep your heart free of hate, your mind of worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try for one week and you’ll be surprised

December 28th - try it, you might just like it!

According to recent studies and documentaries, an increasing number of people in today's world are reporting unhappiness.  One of the ways in which we find happiness is in social interaction, family, friends, and a sense of community. 

So, why not try to spread some smiles, to make others happy, which in turn will make each of us happier too.

In today's society everyone is super busy with their own lives. But this is no excuse. Take five minutes of your time each day to make someone else happy, to see a smile spread across their face. Just knowing that you caused this chain of events will make you a happier person, too.

Remember that happiness, just like smiles and laughter, can in a way be contagious. So let's all try to solve this unhappiness problem. By helping others we are also helping ourselves. Spread the smiles, share happiness and make the world a better place.

Scatter sunshine all along your way. Cheer and bless and brighten. Ev'ry passing day.

You are right. I have found that taking time to smile at a 'harried' clerk is well worth the effort. Compliments to register-folk at the super stores brings great rewards in the returned smile.

So true that it doesn't take much time to make someone happy and often a simple smile or a kind word does the trick!
