Finding a Positive Attitude-Secret to Happiness

Three years ago I found myself to be a very unhappy person. I wont go into all the details, but I was reading one day and came across this "recipe". I read it and reread it. I wanted to be happy and was tired of having a bad attitude about everything everyday. I cut it out and hung it on my refrigerator. I made sure I read it daily and asked myself "Today did I" and then went down the list. It didnt make my problems go away, but it gave me a new perspective of them. I reread it often when I catch myself having a bad attitude and not thinking positive.
There is someone I know that is very negative right now about everything. I hope they will see this, read it, print it out and hang it somewhere where they will see it and read it daily. I hope it will help that someone who is struggling day to day.

Secret to Happiness
The secret to happiness and well-being is no mystery. All it takes is the ability to do the following:
Forget.
Apologize.
Admit errors.
Avoid mistakes.
Listen to advice.
Keep your temper.
Shoulder the blame.
Make the best of things.
Maintain high standards.
Think first and act accordingly.
Put the needs of others before your own.
Forgive.
Seems like a tall order? Then try slipping as many of these "secrets to happiness" into your day as possible. You'll soon be rewarded with a more positive outlook on life.

  4. Thank you for the reminder how to be happy. I've been pretty crabby and generaly unhappy lately (as you probably noticed from my messages) so this is a good thing to read.
