Happy Monday My Friends,
I wanted to start our week off with a HAPPY message.
NEAR TO HAPPINESS
“To be kind to all, to like many and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness.” (Mary Roberts Rinehart)
There is not great mystery to being happy. Happiness is within easy reach of all of us, though we don’t always appreciate this fact. The secret to happiness is this: Treat others as you would like to be treated. That’s about it.
Like a stick thrown to a dog, love and kindness keep coming back. When we make others happy, we make ourselves happy.
NOTE TO SELF: I have a good life, with friends I love and who love me. (Linda Picone)
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. (Buddha)
I, like many others, have used this same statement above, “I treat others as I want to be treated.” Sometimes I feel it is just that, words only. How often in our busy lives do we all have days that we may be busier than usual or under more stress and pressure and fail to remember just what our actions and words can do to one another. Maybe if we took an extra minute to think before acting or speaking we may just be that single candle that spreads it’s light of happiness into someone else’s day. (SH)
In closing : “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” (Mark Twain)
Wishing everyone a HAPPY and wonderful week
