Chapter 7, Page 14, Book 21


Being happy is something you have to learn.  I often surprise myself by saying, Wow, this is it.  I guess I'm happy.  I got a home I love.  A career the I love.  I'm even feeling more and more at peace with myself.

Harrison Ford 

July 14th -This is it.  Be Happy!

Most folks are as happy as they make ups their minds to be.

Abraham Lincoln

It’s all about the choices we make.  We can choose to be happy.  At one time I’d been so sad for so long, I decided that I was tired of that and just decided I wanted to be happy.

It doesn’t mean that everything was perfect, it means I choose to look beyond the imperfections.  That choice changed my life.  It’s a choice we all have, everyday.

I learned to be content with what I had instead of bemoaning what I didn’t have.  We put off being happy for so many reasons, thinking that now is not the right time.  But we have to get rid of the excuses and start enjoying life now.

Put on a smile and celebrate the fact that you're alive.  We have to choose joy and choose it daily. We have to be careful of what we think about.  Thinking happy thoughts and smiling a lot tend to make us happy. You may not be exactly where you want to be, but you can learn to be happy where you are. Live your best life now.

Don’’t waste your time in anger, regrets, worries, and grudges.  Life is too short to be unhappy.

Thank you for this candid testimony, Ma. You're always so relatable ..... and cause me to sit up a little straighter. 😉

Abraham Lincoln could take a simple few words and turn them into history.
