Do the right thing and let God do the rest.
Look around you today and appreciate the riches God has placed on your life ……………….. Even if your circumstances are troubling and your prospects slim, you can still revel in the vibrant colors of the morning sunrise.
Many people spend their lives searching for happiness. Towards the end, some are fortunate to realize that it is not about having more, doing more or being more. It is about how they view what is already theirs. You see, when we begin to see and appreciate the riches around us, we will almost certainly find that we have a great deal more to be happy about than we once imagined ………………………. Here’s something to ponder as we begin another week.
“If you want happiness, give some away.”
“All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination.”
“Nothing shows a man’s character more than what he laughs at.” ~ Goethe.
“You cannot feel terrific about yourself when you feel poorly toward others.”
“Prejudice cannot coexist with love. One always prevail to the exclusion of the other.”
“To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it.”

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

“Sometimes it is good to be “alone” ………. but that doesn’t make us lonely. It is not a matter of being present “with” someone, it is a matter of being present “to” someone. “
“There is only one cause of unhappiness; the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.”

“I believe that the very purpose of life
is to seek happiness. That is clear.
Whether one believes in religion or not,
whether one believes in this religion or that religion,
we all are seeking something better in life.
So, I think the very motion of our life
is towards happiness.”
~ Dalai Lama.
Be defined – accept no one’s definition about your life. Neither do you allow yourself to be bullied into silence. nor be made a victim by others. With that, may you live every day for the rest of your life and see you …………….
