What is the Key to Happiness?

Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill
By Andy Andrews
Beginning this very moment, I am a happy person, for I grasp the truth of the physical law that enables one to live  happily every day. I know that happiness is not an emotional phantom floating in and out of my life. Happiness is a choice. Happiness is the end result of certain thoughts and activities, which actually bring about a chemical reaction in my body. This reaction results in a euphoria that, while elusive to some, is totally under my control.

Today I will choose to be happy. I will greet each day with laughter. Within moments of awakening, I will laugh for seven seconds. After such a small period of time, excitement has begun to flow through my bloodstream. I feel different. I am different! I am enthusiastic about the day. I am alert to its possibilities. I am happy!

My smile has become my calling card. It is, after all, the most potent weapon I possess. My smile has the strength to forge bonds, break the ice, and calm storms. I will use my smile constantly.

My God has bestowed upon me many gifts, and for these I will remember to be grateful. Too many times I have offered up the prayers for beggar, always asking for more and forgetting to give thanks. I do not wish to be seen as a greedy child, unappreciative and disrespectful. I am grateful for sight and sound and breath. If ever in my life there is a pouring out of blessing beyond that, then I will be grateful for the miracle of abundance.

I will greet each day with laughter. I will smile at every person I meet. I am the possessor of a grateful spirit.

Today I will choose to be happy. www.Acknowledgement.com
