Happiness is not in our circumstance but in ourselves.
It is not something we see, like a rainbow,
or feel, like the heat of a fire.
Happiness is something we are.
John B. Sheerin
If I ask you what makes you happy, what would be your answer?
If you are happy with helping others (donating to charity, delivering meals to seniors, helping street kids) then you are a miracle worker whose goal is to make others' lives a bit easier and better. Mother Teresa exemplifies a person whose happiness is found in helping others--the poorest of the poor. If your happiness is found in helping others, then you are socially-conscious, loving, and committed to find resources for those in need.
Remember: Don't waste a minute being unhappy. If one window closes - run to the next window - or break down a door.
Next week, I will continue writing the rest of the characteristics of happy people, in summary form.
