Decide To Be Happy
Unhappy? Not where you feel you should or want to be? If certain things in your life were just a little bit "better," would you be happy? A better job, a better house, better health, more money, a better relationship?

The truth is, it only takes one thing for you to be happy. It takes a made-up mind. That's right, you have to decide that you are going to be happy regardless of your situation. Sure…You may have some obstacles to overcome, but don't ever let that steal your joy. Like my grandmother always said “Son, trouble don’t last always”. So begin each day thinking of all the things you have to be thankful for. Decide each morning to declare to yourself “I'm going to enjoy this day and be happy regardless of what comes my way." Decide To Be Happy.

If you don't get happy where you are, you’ll never get to where you want to be. It all begins with a grateful attitude towards life. Don’t say you don’t have anything to be thankful for. If you can hear me now you have something to be thankful for. Learn to be content with life no matter what your circumstances are. When you do, you’ll start living an abundant, joy-filled life and blessings will come your way. Try it this week and see the difference a new "attitude of gratitude" will make in your life. Decide To Be Happy
