As this year comes to an end, we look back at what we have accomplished and we start looking ahead to what we want to accomplish in the New Year.
I can't help but think of all the "New Year Resolutions"being made this year... All the T.V. commercials showing all the exercise equipment to get us into shape through exercise and Weight loss companies, the car companies are telling us we need to purchase the newest models of their vehicles, the Make up and Hair companies telling us we can look like their models if we only use their products. Now that's not to say that being healthy isn't important, it is. That's not to say, we don't care about what we look like, or how we present ourselves to others, it is. That's not to say, we don't want to better ourselves and our families, and the things we buy, own, drive or the homes we live in, it is...
But I think there is a secret to all that! Once you know that secret the rest just falls into place. Do you want to know what the secret is???
The only secret to happiness is...
Just...be happy! It's very simple... JUST BE HAPPY!
All the rest just falls into place... be happy with what we have, be happy with who we are, be happy with who we are with, be happy with our families, be happy with the things we own... just be happy. That's not to say we don't want to better ourselves, our families, our health and the things we own, drive or the homes we live in...we do. We should look forward to bettering ourselves, we should never stop growing...but first we should be happy, right now in this moment!
So this year the only "New Year's Resolution" I am going to make is...
to be happy!
And let the rest fall into place!
Peace and Hugs,
