How many times have we said, "I'll be happy when..."? I read last week that you can't find light by analyzing the darkness. The same could be said for happiness. You can't find happiness by analyzing your unhappiness. It's been my opinion for a while now that happiness is not a pursuit, it's a choice. Did that new house make you happy? Did that new job make you happy? Did lower gas prices make you happy?

I found happiness inside me when I made a conscious choice to eleminate the negatives from my life and focus on my blessings. What is funny is that it was there all along surrounded by a shroud of negativity, fear and resentment. Since I decided to focus on my blessings, more and more wonderful things have happened.

So yeah I am happy we found a house in Franklin, TN. But it only made me...happier.

I wish you happiness and joy,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
