The Seven Habits of Happy People



Your happiness is tied to your faith and your attitude. You have the ability to determine how you react and respond when life challenges are thrown your way, literally! I reflect on the old adage,"When life gives your lemons, you make lemonade." You possess the tools necessary to live a fulfilled life. Instead of focusing on what you don't have, use what you have to your advantage. Life is like a card game, you can't control the cards you are dealt, but you can control how you play with what you have and win. Despite hardship, pain, affliction, suffering, declare today that you are going to live your life to the fullest! I was reading an article in the July issue of Essence magazine (Gabrielle Union on the cover), Your pursuit of happiness by Michelle Burford. Listed below is the seven habits of happy people highlighted in article. It is definitely a start to living your life to its full capacity.
1.Hang out with joyful people.
2.Move consistently toward your goals.
3.Meditate on your blessings.
4.Be good to yourself.
5.Connect,connect,connect.
6.Go to church-any church.
7.Give-and forgive.

What an inspiring article. A perfect topping to the day that I have had. Today I renewed my happiness, as we often need to check in and sometimes update our subscription with. I must go pick up that copy of Essence. I love reading articles and books about being positive.

Namaste,
