"Happiness is a habit-cultivate it." Elbert Hubbard
Winter drags on while we keep walking our well-worn paths to school and work. This time of year is a challenge for a lot of us, but for others, the cold, dreary days don't seem to drag them down. What is their secret?
Maybe it's because happiness is a habit and we need to choose it intentionally. What are some of those choices? How about appreciating what we have, being considerate, forgiving and laughing? Another more important choice would be investing ourselves in friendships and relationships with others.
There is a simple joy in spending time with a child; the smiles and heartaches, the satisfaction of influencing a life. Feeling a little blue and drained this winter? Open your heart and your life to a child.
