I haven't been updating this blog. Oops! Its been a month! That means I haven't been practising my positive thinking! Well, actually, I've just been busy updating my blog for mothers. Well then, since I have a little time, I shall do a little positive thinking practise for myself. Here are some quotes about being happy that I particularly like and I want to remember. So better put it here to remind myself.

If you want to be happy, be. ~Leo Tolstoy

The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment. ~Doug Larson

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. ~Frederick Keonig

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be. ~Abraham Lincoln

The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness. ~Eric Hoffer, The Passionate State of Mind, 1954


After reading all the above quotes, I would like to remind myself that there is never a happier moment than now. There is no need to seek happiness. All you have to do is be happy! Happiness is a choice you can make today. So choose to be happy now. Think happy! Listen to happy music! Be Happy! Love! Laugh! Live!

The secret (or not so much a secret) to happiness is to be thankful for life as it is and learning what God wants of us in the circumstances we are in.

You probably cannot expect a terminally-ill patient to think positive and be happy about having the illness. But if the patient can see that the circumstances he is in can actually make a positive impact on the lives of those around him, he will experience happiness.

telling someone to be happy is easy to say but very hard to do. what if ur tryin so hard to be happy but u cant control it cuz u have episodes of depression. where u cant even control waht u say or do. and all it does is drive u crazy and the more ppl tell u to just get over it, the more it hurts cuz u kno u cant control it.
