Made Up My Mind To Be Happy.

Today I just decided to be happy-no matter what. This is not about having good health,money or good relationships. I see that just making up mind to be happy is having a positive effect. Thinking about unpleasant things will never make us happy. So positive thoughts,is a must . Making others happy is also a good point. But above all we have to stop to be too concerned about what others think of us.And I think this is the most important one.People will be people and there are two sides to a coin. So here I am looking forward to a cheerful July or rest of the month Hope everybody will have a nice weekend.

Easy to say but not easy to do. As an example I couldn't do it yesterday. Today after a very good night sleep (rare) I am totally different.

Sadly, making up your mind to be happy - won't just make you happy. It takes way more than that. Although many will say otherwise

I read a book once called 'Being Happy'. And one sentence stood out above all others and it said that happiness was a decision and in many ways I think this is true. You can actually decide if you are going to let something get you down or if you will be happy anyway. It has worked for me time and time again.

That is good.It reminds me of a famous saying" “life is 10% of what happens and 90% of how you react to it.”

I think it is better to stay happy as always. It makes our world colorful.

I learned that years ago. You are happiest after doing for others. (sometimes while doing for others, sometimes afterwards!) One doesn't need to be happy all the time, a contented spirit is enough for me.

It's difficult to be happy if your heart is so heavy but you are right. We have to think something that makes us happy.
