What makes us happy? Is it family? friends? career? Reflect from these following quotations.
O taste and see that the Lord is good; happy are those who take refuge in Him.
And now, my children, listen to me: happy are those who keep my ways. Hear instructions and be wise, and do not neglect it. Happy is the one who listens to me…For whoever finds me finds life and obtain favor from the Lord.
Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people who has chosen as his heritage.
I’m fulfilled in what I do…I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes – the finer things of life – would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.
Coretta Scott King
- Say a prayer for someone you know is in need. Prayer is a little thing we can all do but something that has life – changing results. It makes us more loving and sensitive to others needs. At the same time, God listens, and we see things happen!
- Make a list of ten blessings you got today. Having an attitude of gratitude is one of the best ways to shoo a bad day away. It reminds us to keep eyes open to the many gifts God continually gives us!
- Spend time with your parents, grandparents and senior relatives and learn from their Words of Wisdom gathered from years of experience.
- Read Poetry and let it feed your soul. The great poets tried to describe to the full the every essence of life. Relive their vibrant thoughts and relish what they speak of.
- Quiet Please. Take a trip to a nearby park, secluded garden, tree or safe rooftop where you can do some major thinking. This will recharge you to face once again the ridiculously fast pace of today’s world.
Life’s greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.
Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.
Happiness adds and multiplies, as we divide it with others.
To be able to find joy in others joy: that is the secret of happiness.
Happiness is not something we postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
In pursuit of happiness is half the world is on the wrong scent. They think it consists in having and getting, and in being served by others. Happiness is really found in giving and in serving others.
The world’s literature and folklore are full of stories that point out how futile it can be to seek happiness. Rather, happiness is a blessing that comes to you as you go along; a treasure that you incidentally find.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Realize that true happiness lies with you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside.
Remember that there is no happiness in having or getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on the others without getting a few drops on yourself.
