I have been reading some wonderful books on happiness and gratitude lately, and the main theme seems to be, that if you want to be happy now you simply need to get happy now.
Happiness is a way of thinking, and starts from within.
By showing appreciation and being grateful for the life you have been given you will gain happiness.
How easy is that??
There is no secret to happiness, no list of things you need to do, no special magic-happy- pill that you need to take.
All you need is a grateful heart…
…and happiness with follow.
“A happy heart makes the face cheerful.”
Much love, and a happy Sunday to you all!!!

I just watched a documentary on about happiness. Check it out if you have netflix. It's worth the time.
And just over the last couple days I have been thinking about how sometimes I think my happiness is tied to aquiring something (that rattan bar cart that I saw at a market a couple weeks ago, the outdoor furniture that I would enjoy so much, etc) and then I realize that the more I want and the more I give in to those wants, the less happy I am.
So thankful for a gracious Father who continues to give me opportunities to find true happiness in Him!
