Just Be Happy
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
Just be happy. Sounds too simplistic, doesn’t it? But, in actuality, we can have much more happiness if we choose to consider things from a positive perspective.
Everyone experiences the ups and downs of life, however, we can make a decision to dwell on the negative or practice what the old saying says to do: “When life give you lemons, make lemonade!”
It really boils down to your attitude and you have the ability to mold your attitude into any shape you like.
Here are some tips:
- Ignore those who tell you that life is too difficult to be happy. What do they know?
- When you awaken each morning, be thankful for another day, even if it’s raining.
- Smile at those you meet, even if they don’t return the favor.
- Don’t borrow trouble. Each day has enough of it’s own.
- Don’t allow trouble to bury you in its gray mire of sorrow.
- Don’t give in to negative thinking.
- Be positive even when others are not.
- Refuse to give up on anything worth having or doing.
- Do something you enjoy each day, even if it’s just a walk in your neighborhood.
- Whistle as you go through the day.
- Work at being happy because it’s worth it.
You’re human, like everyone else, and from time to time you need a little pick-me-up in your decision to be happy. When you reach that stage, find someone else who has decided to be happy. Join forces with him or her and march forward in your decision to be a happy person.
Simply speaking, a happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
Choose today to just be happy – as much as it depends on you!

“I’m strong of mind… strong of heart… I’m strong in spirit. There’s strength within my soul, strength in my body. I have passion & ambitions. I am driven… determined & I will not go down without a fight because I have fire burning on the inside. There’s something that whispers within & tells me…don’t give.up! I swear it. I won’t give up!”

I make a positive wish today and everyday. Miracles are happening in my life.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
4: Youthful Folly
Saturday, April 9th, 2011
Be on guard for careless or rebellious attitudes characteristic of youthful inexperience. Just as a youth requires instruction, this is a good time to focus on learning your lessons from a patient teacher or life experience. Is there some circumstance in your life that you failed to comprehend, perhaps because you could not appreciate its inherent complexities? Be respectful of anything or anyone who has something to teach you right now.
In order to be prepared for challenges, let education be a part of your life. Continually develop the strong mind and will necessary to carry you through confusing times. The wise realize that experience is a powerful teacher, even though we cannot be forced to learn, even from experience. Be a good student, one who delights in learning, one who nourishes his or her expanding awareness, one who is paying attention!
Examine your attitude for factors that limit your openness. Observe how you deal with the mistakes of others. You must let people live their own lives and learn their own lessons. Offer others your wisdom or advice, but only if the other person is receptive (when in doubt, ask). Otherwise, give up trying to convince him or her that you are right, which is only exhausting and counter-productive. If people are not receptive, let them go their own way — even into difficulty or dangerous circumstances. It is the only way they can learn right now — and without learning, no one can achieve success. This does not mean that you should not care — just that taking care of someone too much can be harmful. Live and let learn.

Potent Pluto’s backward shift drives desires underground where they can be buried with fear and shame, which isn’t very healthy. On the plus side, this four-month retrograde cycle provides an opportunity to re-evaluate what we want and determine whether we’re responding to real needs or simply acting out of habit. A clearer perception of these issues enables us to put our emotional priorities in order, eliminate distractions and concentrate our efforts where they’re most needed.
