Do You Really Want To Be "HAPPY"?

A lot of people will tell you, "I really want to be happy!" But what do they think about? What do they dwell on?

When you really want to be happy, you quit complaining about your arthritis. When you really want to be happy, you quit resenting your boyfriend. Maybe you leave him, maybe you don't, but either way, you throw out your mental list of all his faults.

Can You Choose Happiness?

I grew up assuming that your happiness depended on what happened to you. I figured, "When I have fewer problems, I'll be happy!" Then gradually I realized that the happiest people I know had more problems than I did.Maybe you have noticed the same thing and those people who get the most out of life have often had it tough. They have lost loved ones, they've gone broke, they've been dumped, sacked or suffered serious illness and most likely, they still have big problems! But they are happy because at some point they decided "happy" is the only way to live. Happiness doesn't just happen to you, like some "accident".
