Source of Happiness...
I do believe GOOD thoughts & stories are well worth sharing....
I have always believed that the happy person is not happy because he has a good life but because he wants to be happy.
I was told of a story about two twins one was always happy and the other always sad. The parents decided to for one moment have the two boys be alike so they took the sad boy and put him in a room with every kind of toy they could find. The other boy they put in a room filled with horse manure. After leaving the two boys for the day when they came back the boy that was always sad was upset because the toy he had been playing with was hard for him to get to work. When they went to the room with the happy boy they found him laughing and digging in the manure. They were shocked because they thought he would never be happy in horse manure. When they asked him why he was so happy he answered " With this much horse manure there has to be a horse somewhere."
You choose your outlook on life. It is about perspective and I believe that we, the local and global community, must find in times of crises an opportunity to put human ingenuity to work out creative ways to address our problems.
Hopefully, we have other members with some happy reflections to share?
