What is the secret to happiness?

Gratitude gives way for true happiness - The more grateful you are, the more 'Great Full' you become!

Happiness will never come to those who don't appreciate what they already have.

Is there a secret to happiness?  You may have heard of the saying that 'happiness comes from within' and in a nutshell, yes it does!

We are all responsible for our own happiness, it is not something that is external to us that we must search for and once found put in a box.  It is not dependent on someone else.  Happiness is something that we ourselves create for ourselves!

One sure way of creating more happiness in your life is to be grateful and count all the blessings that you have.  We all experience degrees of hardship and suffering, heartache and loss and none of us are free from challenges and obstacles, but what makes us resilient is our mindset and willingness to accept that we are responsible for our own results, success and ultimate happiness.

Consider this:

"Just an observation: it is impossible to be both grateful and depressed. Those with a grateful mind-set tend to see the message in the mess. And even though life may knock them down, the grateful find reasons, if even small ones, to get up." ~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and being Free

Start today by becoming aware of your thoughts and perspective and then make a choice.  Make a choice in every moment to be thankful for what you have, appreciate the people in your life; friends, family, acquaintances and strangers. Remember that the more you do this the more you will have, and you will see that before long a permanent state of happiness can prevail. ~♥~
