The ABCs of Happiness

By Steve Wilson

Avoid negative sources, people, places, things and habits.
Believe in yourself.
Consider things from every angle.
Don’t postpone joy!
Enjoy today. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present.
Family and friends are hidden treasures.
Give up any anger you might have been hanging on to, but…
Happiness is like perfume: you can’t sprinkle it on others without getting some on yourself.
Ignore those who try to discourage you.
Jolly + jovial + jestful = joyful!
Keep on learning. Learn something new each day.
Look for humor in everyday situations.
Make smiles happen.
Never lie, cheat, or steal. Always strike a fair deal.
Open your eyes, and see the beauty in all of nature.
Play. You don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.
Quiet times give us balance.
Read, study and learn about something new every day.
Stop and smell the roses.
Take control of what you can; let God have the rest.
Understand others first, then seek to be understood.
Visualize happy memories.
Work at making others happy.
X-ercise your right to be unique.
Zero in on laughter and go for it!
