BSG Challenge - Week Two
Did you know that August is National Happiness Happens Month? Happiness is a choice. Remember, happiness does not mean you are problem free. That kind of life doesn't exist. As the Stoics of Ancient Greece observed, happiness is all about the quality of your thoughts. Happiness is not a destination, but rather a life-long pursuit. Joy can be anywhere at any time. Don't limit yourself to searching for pleasure. Enjoy everything and anything that makes you happy. Do you feel like you are a happy person? What are some things you do or can do to make your life happy or happier?
Honestly, I have to say that I am a happy person 90% of the time. My most happiest moments is when I am - writing, journaling, reading, meditating, walking outdoors, spending quality time with my family, encouraging others, or doing kind deeds for others. This morning I paused and blessed my day. Today is a gift of opportunity for me to reach my highest potential. I honor this opportunity with love and gratitude. I forgive myself and others for past mistakes, and begin today anew. Today I fill my heart with love, and embark on a wonderful, new experience. Every situation in life is meant to be temporary. When life is going as planned, make sure to enjoy every moment. And when life is not going as planned, know that it will not last forever and better days are sure to follow. Remember, your actions will always reflect who you are so the closer you get to being who you are meant to be…the brighter you shine!
