You can be as happy as you want to be.Never let others have the power to cause you to feel down in spirit.Remember you and you alone are the Captain of your ship.Try to find even the smallest thing that can give you at least some joy.Go back in your memory think about those things in your yesterdays that you had fun and laughter with,smile when you recall these wonderful happenings.Laugh more.No matter where you live,make your house more colorful and interesting,more exciting and relaxing.Whenever you go out to different places that excite you and make you happy,you should also be able to return to a place thats 100% more exciting than the one that you are coming from.That place is home.Ornaments,Photos,Paintings.You name it,these are just a few ideas that you can utilise to have a good feel about your home You should also steer clear of negative people.You can do it,it does take effort,but it can be done.Think positively and begin today.

Thank you for nice thoughts which really works for all. I have been always trying to be happy but these days things are not so good at my end because of job problems. I never felt like these days, it's like my need is overlooked by GOD and not getting response on time. People say there will be some real good thing waiting for me and that is the reason my prayers are not yet answered. be Happy and spread happiness.

But when things are not good around you, it's not easy to be happy and I cannot pretend to be happy when I am not

This is so nice to read first thing in the morning. I too have found removing negative people made me feel better. I bought a plate decor for my home last month. There are four plates hanging o my wall. This is what they say. sing like no one is listening love like you have never been hurt before dance like no one is watching live like heaven begins tomorrow. The other day I was here by myself just dancing nad singing like no one was listening. But,I know my neighbor might be.

could you tell me your age group? I think being happy is to exchange with others , your ideas, your hobbies,people like to talk with you and share with you. Then you do not have time to be sad any more. you are a happy person.

I appreciate the principle, but it's sometimes difficult when the corporations we work for try so hard to make your life unpleasant. You aren't even safe at home with the costs of living, intrusion by hard sell telephone calls and unpleasant neighbours who do what they can to make you feel unwelcome.

Believe me Memnon,I know exactly what you mean,but dont you think that, that should give one more incentive to fight this evil? Put on your positive thinking armour my friend and defeat your enemy.Remember Good will always triumph over evil.!!!LOL!!!

I don't doubt that you are right, but whilst I am forced to have my wages paid into a bank- ie. legal theft- I do not see things improving.

Well Jungle, what an inspiring little ray of sunshine you are this morning! You are right though. We are ultimately responsible for our own happiness and also to spread it. If we are miserable then we will surely spread that negative mood also. I agree with all you said here except for the part about it being easy. It's not. At times it takes all your effort to come up with a reason to smile. Still, even in the worst of times it can be done and even if it starts out as fake, if you force yourself to smile, it has that ripple effect and soon others are smiling and suddenly...it does become real. Thanks for the inspirations, Jungle!

I think to be living always happily is tuff but not impossible. Because this is the time of competition so every person want to be get success in life and also their circumstances always being higher. So they feel some problem to living always happy. But also there are many people who are satisfying with their requirements and they always feel happy.

That is a positive start, my friend. Think happy and one should be happy. How easier said than done though. Personally, I feel that one should feel happy that one is still breathing the minute one thinks he is unhappy. Happiness beget happiness.

This is good advice. Keeping a clean organized home makes me feel good about myself. Staying away from negative people can be pretty tough though. Especially when your parents, brother, and friends tend to be so pessimistic. I've been working weekends with my mom and brother and have definitely noticed how they effect my attitude and outlook. I love my friends and family but they are a bad influence on my life and I don't have anyone else. Luckily I am so strong willed and don't mind just spending time by myself. Boredom is my biggest enemy right now. Maybe I will clean my room.
