If you can use your thoughts to make yourself unhappy, you can learn to use them to make yourself happy. When your mind is focused away from yourself and on positive and enjoyable things or activities, that’s happiness. Diversion from self-focus is the road to happiness.
Happy people don’t have to work at having fun, because they spontaneously enjoy life, from the inside out. Happy people make the world a better place by carrying and spreading joy and appreciation everywhere they go. You can do that if you develop the ability to be happy from the inside out.
If you wait on something or someone to make you happy, it might take awhile. Go ahead and jump the gun. Be happy today. Harness happiness. When you have happiness flowing from the inside out, you don’t need much outward entertainment.
Happiness by design (creating an ongoing, joyful, interior environment in your mind and heart) is much more effective than hoping to stumble into happiness. Perhaps it’s better to enjoy happiness right where you are, instead of constantly pursuing it.
Nobody can make you be kind. You have to choose to be kind; the same with being happy. Happiness is more about enjoying where you are and what you have, instead of forcefully trying to get something or somewhere else.
As anger increases, happiness decreases. You can’t have both at the same time. Happy people have learned to enjoy life, even in difficult circumstances.
It’s hard to maintain a happy facade, but a heart trained to continually enjoy life, spontaneously flows with happiness. If you can find no reason or excuse to be happy, just be happy for the joy of it. Happiness is fun!
Happy people avoid negative assumptions. They don’t want to get upset for no good reason. Search for: The Joy Of Early Christianity.
