Happiness is…
Keeping your spirit burning brightly,
Learning to take your troubles lightly,
Counting your blessings daily, nightly.
~Linda Elrod


Happiness doesn’t always just happen – it comes as I discover what is truly important in life.


Places and circumstances never guarantee happiness.  You must decide within yourself whether you want to be happy. ~Robert J. Hastings


“The only way to live happily ever after is to do it ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!


“The Key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.” ~Epictetus


Change is the essence of life.  Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.


Recovery brings us the ability to choose!


I will realize today how many positive choices are available to me!


Let go!  Don’t control or complain!  Surrender!


She who has hope has everything.


“When an emotional injury takes place, the body begins a process as natural as the healing of a physical wound.  Let the process happen.  Trust that nature will do the healing.  Know that the pain will pass, and, when it passes, you will be stronger, happier, more sensitive and aware. ~ Mel Colgrove


Happiness comes from within.  If you choose to be happy, no one and no thing can ever take that happiness from you.


“When its over, I want to say:  All my life I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” ~Mary Oliver


“Life has got to be lived – that’s all there is to it.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
