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

The Happy Home (Psalm 128:1-4)

Happy are those who respect the Lord and obey him . You will enjoy what you work for, and you will be blessed with good things. Your wife will give you many children, like a vine that produces much fruit. Your children will bring you much good, like olive branches that produce many olives. This is how the man who respect the Lord will be blessed. Psalm 128:1-4 www.Acknowledgement.com
