Finding Joy Now

February 9th, 2009

So many people seem to have a negative outlook on life.  Why?  Maybe it’s the trials we go through, money, or our jobs.  So, what can we do to avoid the negative outlook and help others look at things in a positive way? 

We can do the stuff that makes us happy–give a compliment to someone if they have low self-esteem, encourage people to go to church, be their friend, or simply smile at them.

What makes me happy?

  • My family
  • Knowing that I’m a daughter of my Heavenly Father
  • Eating chocolate
  • My friends
  • Shopping
  • Geting good grades
  • Praying
  • Reading scriptures
  • Reading a book
  • Going to church
  • Finishing a big job
  • Feeling the spirit
  • Seeing another person happy
  • Having people who love me

There are a lot of things that we can do to keep us happy.  We need to try to stay positive and keep others positive, too.  I know that this is important and that we should all try to do it.  It can give us all a better quality of life.

“Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but what happens inside of you.”

    Amber – I believe that you have discovered the true meaning of happiness, and that is in making others happy and trying to uplift them. What is inside a person is definitely the most important thing. If we can focus on the positive things in our lives, it will help us be able to uplift those around us who are feeling down. I am very proud of you, my dear granddaughter, for figuring so much out at your young age. My co-worker Brian said to write, “Well done, Amber, you figured it out.”

    Nicely done, Amber. The world would be a far better place if more people were like you.

    I couldn’t help but notice that “eating chocolate” is very high on your list! What is it with women and chocolate? One of the uncountable number of things I don’t understand….
