Be Happy!

Posted by Abe Quiring on Jun 20th 2019

We all want the happily ever after, but are we willing to make the hard decisions to be happy?  Many of us have an image in our minds of what will make us happy: a new pair of shoes, a new car, exotic vacation or a morning latte.  All have their appeal but leave us wanting for more.  May I suggest we focus on something other than what we want.

When we focus on what others need, we become fulfilled and as a result happier.  Instead of focusing on the things that make us happy, find ways to make a difference in the lives of others.  Be intentional about making someone else’s day great.  Thank them for something specific.  Compliment them on a task well done.  Remember the little things have the greatest impact.

Putting the interest of others above our own may be a challenge for many of us at first, but it’s necessary for us to be great.
