“All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15
Happiness is not a destination but a day-by-day journey. Life is too short to not laugh. We need to learn to laugh at ourselves and instead of letting little things mess us up, we need learn what we can and move on. You can’t have a merry heart, if you are not willing to cultivate a merry heart! Real happiness begins on the inside, not the outside!
We miss out on the things that really make life special by getting distracted by the frustrations and challenges! We need to enjoy our conversations with others, instead of rushing through them. We need to take time to read and learn from what others have to say. We need to take a walk and enjoy the amazing creation that God has placed all around us! Work to grow and maintain loving relationships with family and friends – life just does not work without them!
God loves you and He wants you to be happy, at peace and filled with joy and love! Take some time today to enjoy this life that He has blessed you with and learn to laugh – you’ll be glad you did!
