I always wanted to know the secret to happiness. It is something that seemed to not exist most of the time except for the holidays when I noticed people were nicer to others. The period between Thanksgiving and New Years Day are times we all celebrate. Then nothing. The truth is you must sincerely desire to be happy. Nothing is accomplished without desire. Desire is a wish with wings of imagination and faith. Imagine the fulfillment of your desire, and feel its reality, and it will come to pass. Happiness comes in answered prayer.
When you open your eyes in the morning, say to yourself, I choose happiness today. I choose success today. I choose right action today. I choose love and good will for all today. I choose peace today. Pour life, love, and interest into this affirmation, and you have chosen happiness. Give thanks for all your blessings several times a day. Furthermore, pray for the peace, happiness, and prosperity of all members of your family, your associates, and all people everywhere. Happiness comes from within. Our positive thoughts are where we begin.
