I prefer sushi, but it is amazing that I have a choice.
Happiness is my home with heat and air conditioning.
The indoor plumbing is a major bonus (especially during winter in the Midwest).
Happiness is knowing God has a purpose for my life.
The more I follow Him, the more it becomes clear.
Happiness is having two healthy children. Even though they leave a trail like a tornado in the house.
Happiness is my daughter falling asleep with her head on my shoulder. I’m even fond of the drool stain she leaves on my sleeve.
Happiness is my husband sleeping next to me. We will leave out the snoring and interesting smells here.
Happiness is possible wherever we are in life, but I wasn’t always there (in that happy place).
So what changed?
Let me tell you… the secret to happiness in life, marriage, single life, relationships, and in the workplace – it is being thankful for the things that are good (Philippians 4:8).
Now I know… it might not all be good, but if you take a moment to stop and think about it, you will discover a whole lot that is good no matter what is going on in your life right now.
Mesh your thoughts with God’s way of thinking. He is a happy God. He sits in the heavens and laughs (and it is not even at us).
Do you want to be happy right now?
Its easier than you think… so let’s do it!
I challenge you to write down 10 things that are good in your life then share a few of them in the comments below.
No matter what is going on in your life, make it your mission today to make this list. I promise, if you take the time to focus on what’s good in your life, you’ll be much happier.
