Happiness

Standard

As I have dealt with difficulties in my relationships this past month, I have discovered the truth of the above statement.  I cannot base my happiness on what is going on with things outside of me and often, outside of my control.  I can only control what is inside of me, what I feel, what I think, how I treat others, and most importantly, how I treat myself.  If I am not OK on the inside, it really doesn’t matter how good things may be in other areas of my life.  I have been trying to take time for ME – to ponder, to pray, to study, to meditate … to do those things that will bring me to where I need to be – for ME.  And I have never felt more peaceful, more calm, more prepared for whatever may come.
