Remember to be Happy!

This sign hangs on the wall of a bagel shop:  “Don’t forget to be happy.”  Sometimes we get bogged down in dealing with feelings, issues, problems – the realities and details of our lives – we forget to be happy.  Often happiness can be ours if we just remember to be happy.  Joy is a choice – a deliberate and conscious choice.  That choice is available to us each day. Our joy isn’t controlled by others or by outward circumstances.  Joy comes from a deeper glance, a place of security within ourselves.  It is an attitude, not a transitory emotion.

Remember to be kind.  Remember to be loving.  Remember to feel all of your feelings and take care of yourself.  But most of all remember to be happy.
