Practice being happy! : )
Life is beautiful. There is so much to be grateful for. So why do I spend so much time thinking about the things I don't have! Taking some time to be happy about what I've got is a great way to practice being happy. Happy doesn't come natural to all of us. I know it's been a very fleeting state for me personally. It comes and goes and I often feel like I'm a victem of Happy's whims. But being happy is a choice. It's a spiritual practice. People aren't just struck happy, like they are struck by lightning. Happy people are taking happy actions.
When you realize that you want the things you have - and focus on what those things are - you are much more likely to experience this happy state. So I'm gonna try it out. I'm going to be grateful for some stuff today.
