Happiness is not getting everything you want, It’s appreciating everything you have.

Reaseach has shown thatyou can increase your happiness and overall satisfactionwith life with witha change in perspective and attitude.Fulfillmentis the achievementof something done or desired. The meeting of a required condition. Its a feeling of contentment.. I dont have everything I want, but I do have all that I need. 

Money isnt going to make a differencein how happy you are. Others arengoingto make you happy either. We are each of us responsible for our own happiness.

Without gratitude and appreciation for what you already have, youll never know true fulfillment. 

Tony Robbins

I have learned to be satisfied with what I have because I know how easily it can be taken away. Becoming grateful makes a huge difference in our overall happiness. It makes us experience more positive emotions, decreases depression, feel better aboutourselves. and improves relationships and even strengthensour immune systems. Gratitude can even makes you smarter about how you spend your time and money.

Ive made it a habit to count my blessings every day and write down what Im thankful for. And to offersincere complements to others too. When you think of the things you admire and appreciate aboutothers anddwellon them. not only will you make the other person happier, but it will make you value the relationship more and feel happier too..

Ive found that when you focus on the present moment you are much more likely to feel centered, happy and at your peak.. You are also more likely to notice the good thing alll around you. Thoughts of the past and worrying about the future prevent that from happening. 

So, Savor the good things life has to offer. and you will be happier and more content with what you have. It doesnt matter what you do as long as you enjoy it and appreciate it.

Stop and smell the roses…

Old proverb

I have been blessed. I have seldom envied others and been happy and thankful for what I have. Life is good when you appreciate what God has entrusted into your care.
As always, good stuff,
Sherry & jack

The - money will make you happy - is indeed a trap. Some of the most unhappy people I know are ones who put money first.
