Rethinking Happiness

If things ways need to go “your way” to be happy, you will never be happy. And when you are happy, you won’t be happy for very long.

Let’s face it, we live in a fallen world, control is an illusion and things are sometimes really hard. People do dumb crap, bad things happen, relationships get cross threaded and folks seldom do what you want them to do.

The key to happiness is to lay aside immature and unrealistic aspirations for your life and simple learn to love, enjoy and find meaning in what is in front of you.

Happy people focus on what they have. Unhappy people obsess about what they don’t have.

So be happy today!

Count your blessings!

Lean into what is beautiful, good and life giving.

There simply is no downside…
