Happiness is Within You
by Teresa King
Have you ever wondered why some people
wake up in the morning as chirpy as the busy
birds outside the window? While others wake
up grumpy. Ever wonder why some people
seem happy most the time, while others are
withdrawn, sad, depressed or bitter?
Well, I have. And, since I pondered I
went to find out why.
It is all in attitude. Changing the way you think
about things. Is the glass half full, or is it half
empty? Is the sun bright and beautiful or is it
hot and miserable? Does the rain falling day
after day drag yours spirits down, or do you
ever look at the beauty of the rain?
Every situation in life has two sides as we
have good we also have to have evil, for
without evil we would not recognize good.
Without cold, there would not be any warm.
Without noise, we could not recognize the
beauty of silence. When Einstein failed, he
didn't think failure, he basically thought, oh
I have found one more way that my idea won't
work. When Lincoln tried for president
countless times, he didn't think failure, he
thought about how he could improve his
campaign so he could win an election.
Attitude, and how you perceive things are the
key to your own happiness. If you are feeling
overwhelmed in a situation in life, rather than
sitting there feeling sorry for yourself, think
positive. Find something that you can learn
and gain from the situation.
A death in the family is a tragic thing. But,
look around, did the death not bring the rest
of the family together for grieving and
emotional support and closer to each other
as they talked about memories of their loved
ones? Did not death bring into mind the frailty
of life, and the knowing that you could leave
this world any minute and that tomorrow could
be your last day? Did you do all you wanted
to do in this life time yet? Or, have you sat back
making excuses for each day of why you have
not reached for dreams?
Attitude, wake up in the morning, smile in the
mirror, welcome each day with the love you
would give your precious child and savor the
day. When things are down, turn them around.
When things are happy, pile that happy time,
into your mind, where you can pull it out anytime
you need a bit of cheering up. Embrace life and
be grateful for things in life.
Attitude. Have you ever noticed how happy
it feels to give? Giving of ourselves is
wondrous thing. To see the smile of
gratitude upon someone's radiant face.
Or hear the small thank you for your help,
is a great way to start on an attitude change.
Attitude, don't fixate on small things.
Look at the larger scale. It is amazing that
in a true crisis, you can rise up to the challenge,
but it is always the last little small thing that
throws people off into an angry fit.
Remember, many people are born blessed
with good health and money are not happy.
And, many people who have suffered and
struggled are the happiest of all. It is all on
how you look at it. So, keep your chin up,
and try to find the bright side to every situation
that life throws you, for inside yourself lies
