Being Happy...

Happiness is having a dream you cannot let go of and a partner who would never ask you to...

We all have choices and what we do with them can many times steer the course of our lives.  Many times we choose to see the smaller picture rather than the big one.  Big mistake.  This does not necessarily mean that I have always made the right decision, but I do know that I have learnt from past mistakes and will  do my best to never make the same ones again. 

There are people in your life who are always seeing the bright side of everything, and it is those that you would want to be around.  The negative ones can find enough misery on their own so why bother with them.

I just came across a book called Being Happy..more like a handbook and as I was reading along so much of what is written here is basic common sense and simplicity in lifestyle.

A few of the "lessons" I picked up here I would like to share with you hope you enjoy.

It goes like this:

Being happy can be hard work sometimes.  It is like maintaining a nice home....you've got to hang on to your treasures and throw away the garbage.  Being happy requires looking for good things.  One person sees the beautiful view and the other sees the dirty window.  

You choose what you see and you see what you think, and remember, happiness is a choice. Your circumstance can affect it, but you're still the one who decides your happiness

You have your brush and colors.  You paint paradise, then in you go....
