I read an article on here tonight about Happiness I will share the link at the end of my Blog and I encourage you to take a look.

After I read this article I realized that some of habits are for sure unhealthy ones. Every now and then I have a thought cross my mind about how someone hurt me or did me wrong in the past. Or how I think I would be so much happier if I had more money or a new car or a bigger house that list goes on for miles.
I am sure a lot of you can relate.
I find myself at times wishing my neighbor wasn't so nosey and would mind her own business and find a list of names that suit her very well.

All of these things were on the list of 51 habits of what happy people do.
They don't hold grudges
They don't base their happiness on material objects of possession
They don't Gossip or Name call.

When I read this it was like a huge slap in the face to wake me the heck up and realize that If I was to just be grateful for what I do Have
I have a vehicle that gets me where I want to go
I have a house with a big Yard
I have a Good Job that pays me well
I make enough money to pay my bills and put food on my table
I have Wonderful Caring friends
I have Wonderful Grandkids that love me with all their hearts
I have a Son and a Daughter too that also love me with all their hearts
I have My Dogs Dakota and Codie that love me unconditionally

So when I started to think about this I thought wow I am really lucky to have all these things I do have.
So why is it I for all this time felt so hard done by because of the things people have done in my past. I can't change the past So it is time for me to move on forgive and forget those actions and those people. I will free my heart and my mind of all grudges I held on to for so long.

Even if I made double the money I make now there would always be that want for more material items.
From now on I will be happy with what I do have and not base how happy I am on material things that can disappear tomorrow.

I will no longer worry about the neighbor and her nosey ways I will accept what is and not let it concern me.

From this day on I will do these 3 things for 21 days and make it a habit

I will not hold a grudge
1 will not Worry about what others think or gossip about them
I will be Grateful for what and Who is in my life.

Take a look at this article and see what you can change in your life today

    Very enlightening. I always believed that knowing what makes you happy came naturally. Now I realize that we control our own happiness.

    I agree. I think I will do what you set out to do too. I will try my best and be mindful to be happy everyday in every way.
    I hope you will be able to adopt the "happy" mindset gradually. Same goes to everyone.
    Thanks for sharing this in your blog and the article link.
