Every single morning before my feet hit the floor I say "thank you thank you thank you." then I get out of bed and start my day. When I am walking to the bus each morning I say all the things I am greatful for. I focus on all the amazing love I have in my life. I think about how much Herbalife has changed my health and my financial situation. How I love helping other people get healthy and also create an income doing what I do. I just always be sure to think about all I have, and how much I love my life and what I am doing. What do you do to make sure you are happy?

Hi momma. How are you doing? And how is your herbalife ave a favorite business going?? I have a favorite anime called naruto shippuden. I am a very big fan of it. And hence whenever I watch it I feel like my day has been happier. But it is only after I talk to my girlfriend going to sleep that makes me feel happy before wrapping up the day and retire for the night. Have a nice day !!! SuperShames

that sounds so nice. I would love to have a garden in be in the presence of nature. As soon as my husband and I buy our home i am so going to plant a garden. Being happy in the moment and being grateful for all things, that's how you heal yourself! keep enjoying that garden...

To make sure I'm always happy is simple... I count my blessings and not my short comings. :)

For me, every morning when wake up from my bed, I thank God for I'm still alive, can walk around and still living normal. I also be grateful for many good things that happen to me. I also count my blessings each and everyday. In fact, I got too many things to thank for. With all those, then only I can be happy.

I take a bunch of exercises in the morning these days because I have enough time to do so. It is holidays and I love to use my time in doing the exercises for 45 minutes in the morning which is not possible in the normal routine. I will try to continue the same when I finish the holidays by waking up early in the morning. I love the way you start your day, I think I should also do it. Thanks a lot for sharing.

that's fantastic. I need to start going to bed sooner so i can get up earlier to work out. When I do workout I enjoy it very much. I just need to do it more often

I do not know exactly how happiness could be....maybe I am still in pain after so many years..but I do try to make my life as normal as can be. My shallow happiness is just being able to have some time with myself- out of obligations and responsibilities even for just a few hours. It is like having my own small world- to help me breathe and think.

shallow happiness... that sounds really sad. besides, what is normal? There is no such thing as normal. Normal is over rated and never used. Normal is like being like everyone else and their craziness. so why not have your own crazy. we all have our own past and pain. our job is to move pass that into a space where only love, forgivness and happiness lives

i think i just live each day as it comes, though i plan for the future, i worry less. =) i don't really dive in to the past as i believe there are no mistakes and only lessons to be learned. you just have to remember them and do better next time. no need to have something weigh down on you. =)

I like the way you think my friend. I am so not weighed down by my past. I am grateful for all the lessons I've learned, and I bring those lessons into my future.

I am grateful as well. My mother taught me and my siblings to 'count our blessings' she would start singing the song: "Count your Blessings, one by one" if we started to complain to her. Health is indeed important and I am happy that you found something that works for you - both in health and wealth. Personally, I found something else that I am slowly but surely building online. The most important is to enjoy what you are doing. I do volunteer work and when I get down, I just remember those I can help and that just picks me right up again. Many Blessings to you.

Hi, I start my day by thanking the Lord for the gift of another day. I also thank him for His faithfulness and the many ways He continues to bless my life. Lastly, I spend time in fellowship with Him as well.

I do the same thing. I say thank you 3 times each morning before I get out of the bed. Then spend the morning thanking him and counting my many wonderful blessings!
