How to Create Your Ultimate Happy Place

Did someone steal the key to your happiness?  How much time have you spent looking for it?  Perhaps you're searching in all the wrong places.  I know how it is.  Blaming others won't work.  Postponing happiness until you meet some goal you put on a calendar won't work.  Holding on to the past won't work.  I know who has your key.  Ready?  Look in the mirror.  Yep.  There's your solution.  You're the one person on this planet who can create your ultimate happy place.

A five-year-old was asked to write a paper about what she wanted to be when she grew up.  She wrote about being happy.  Her teacher told her she didn't understand the assignment.  The little girl told her teacher she didn't understand the meaning of life.  I bet that little girl was already happy.  She wasn't going to let anyone steal her key.

Whatever is going on in your life today that may be causing you some kind of burden, it's not enough to take away your happiness unless you decide it is.  Maybe you're overwhelmed in debt, or you feel you have too many pounds around your belly.  Or, maybe your boss is adding too much to your workload.  So what?  Once you decide to be happy, you're happy.  Remember to share your happiness.  The more you share, the larger your happy place.  Be happy.  Have a great day.
