Bring Change To Ourselves....
"Change in ourselves and in the world in which we live may not take place in a hurry: it will take time. But if we don't make an effort nothing will happen at all. Change will not take place because of decisions taken by governments or the UN. Real change will take place when individuals transform themselves guided by the values that lie at the core of all human ethical systems, scientific findings, and common sense."
Today I choose happiness.
Happiness is the choice I make today. It does not rest on my circumstances, but on my frame of mind. I surrender any emotional habits that lead me down the path of unhappiness, and pray for guidance in shifting my thoughts. In cultivating the habits of happiness, I smile more often, give praise more often, give thanks more often, and am glad more often. For such is my choice today.
