How are you today? Have you ever given any thought to that question? Besides just answering “Fine, how are you?”, without really paying attention, I mean. The question kind of implies, to me at least, that how you are today is something that just happens, and is beyond your control.  And, indeed, most of us just go through the day reacting to whatever comes our way.

Posted by on Feb 14, 2011 | 0 comments

If only I had a boyfriend, I’d be happy…  If only I could find a job, I’d be happy…  If only we had more money, I’d be happy… Does this sound like you?  Prepared to be happy, someday. Happiness is a state of being, but it is also a choice.  If you are not happy right now, ‘because’ you don’t have a boyfriend, or ‘because’ you don’t have a job, or … then it is because you have made the decision, whether consciously or unconsciously, to respond to your current situation by being unhappy. Starting today, why not...
