Of this be sure: You do not need find the happy life -- you make it.
There is a new series on Huffington Post called "Talk to Me". It is children asking questions of their parents. I love it, I love the questions, I love the idea.
This got me thinking...if my darling Daughter asked me what I would want for her in her life, I would think of all kinds of things, success, health, love, but most of all, and by a wide margin, I want her to be happy.
Happy is a state of mind. Happy has nothing to do with weight, or success, or wealth. It has everything to do with an inner feeling of contentment with your circumstances. It is a feeling every day, that this will be a good one, and you will make it so.
Are you happy? If not, why not? This is in your power every single minute of every single day to make happen. Nobody can do this for you. People can enhance your happiness, people can make your days worse if you let them, but nobody can make you happy but you.
So, in thinking about life, what I would like for everyone, including my DD, I would always choose happiness. I choose it for you today. Make yourself happy. Smile more. Love more, laugh more. Sing more, dance more. In other words, be happy.
