Rather Be Happy? 🌈

A  L  O  H  A !

"A cheerful heart 
is good medicine, 
but a crushed spirit 
dries up the bones."
Proverbs 17:22










“Man is affected not by events 
but by the view he takes of them.” 
                  Seneca













Do not conform to 
the pattern of this world, 
but be transformed by the 
renewing of your mind. 
Then you will be able to 
comprehend."  
Romans 12:2

All of us are marinating in a world
or news, ideas, and expectations.
The mind never stops telling us
a story we call: How It Is.

All of this is fed into our subconscious
which uncritically brings more of the 
same into our thoughts, and remarkably
into our experience! Modern psychology
has shown that we see and experience
largely what we believe and 
EXPECT, interpreting
people and situations in ways that 
suit our categories. 

How much nicer it
is to notice the Good, and Beautiful
all day long! But Daily life 
- especially today - 
is set up so that we are basting
 in news, contention, traffic, 
and issues All Day Long. 

And then we
take it to bed with us!

 Too many of us
would rather be right in our negative
expectations and judgements,
get more of a payoff from it,
than to consider a different way.

And more than consider it,
we can put it into action!



Tomorrow:
How To Do It.

Thank YOU
Friend!
