Hello Happiness

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.

True happiness…is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

The person who seeks all their applause from outside has their happiness in another’s keeping .

Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.

It is what you think about.

Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Buddha

A happy life consists in the tranquillity of mind.

Happiness… it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.

As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world.

I have a chance to do both. All who would win joy must share it; happiness was born a twin.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.

Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness.

It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.

A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination.

But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.

Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.

Abundance is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

The happiness of your life depends upon the integrity of your thoughts.

Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.

Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received?

Is not giving a need?

Is not receiving, mercy?

It’s interesting that in so many of our relationships, whether with our spouses and children, coworkers, or business partners, we begin with the same goals.

We want to love each other, to raise great kids, and to be successful.

But sooner or later, we get in conflict because we differ in our personalities and perspectives.

We do want to have our way and win.

We have to be the right one.

Too often we fail to ask ourselves whether it’s worth the toll that it takes on our marriage, our children, or our job.

I talked with a beautiful young friend who told me, β€œI have a really strong personality, and I get such a great feeling to be the right one and win arguments”.

Then she paused. β€œBut I’m realizing it’s slowly ruining my marriage and negatively changing the atmosphere in our home”.

He was fortunate to realize this when he did.

If you have to win every argument, you’ll devastate your spouse.

If you have to be right all the time, you’re making others, including your children, feel wrong.

It’s too costly.

The apostle Paul has a word for all of us today: β€œIf it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone” -; Romans 12 verse 18. He also says, β€œMake every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” – Ephesians 4 verse 3.

If we’re going to achieve unity, we have to take the initiative to do what it takes to make the peace.

We have to learn how to reconcile our differences and honour God.

It’s about unity, and the only way we’re going to find unity is through the bonds of peace.

Unity doesn’t mean we’re all going to agree on everything.

We have different opinions and different ways of doing things.

So we have to learn the way of peace that’s going to bind us together.

When you know that you’re about to have a difficult conversation, you can draw the line in the sand and say, β€œI’m not going to step over this line into strife and division.

β€œI’m going to make peace”.

Sometimes during a conversation, you have to say, β€œGod, it doesn’t have to go my way, and I can let them be right.

There are more ways than just my way.

This isn’t the way I would do it, but I’m going to zip it up because I’m going to keep the unity through the bond of peace.

I’m not going to fight for my way.

I leave this in Your hands”. That peace will bind us together!
