Advice on how to be live a happy life

Are you happy? Louise said one day, “You are always happy and in a good mood.”

My answer to her was everyone is as happy as they want to be because we make our minds up to be happy or in a bad place.

If you want more friends be a good friend to more people.

What does it cost to bring flowers home to your loved ones? Not much. Try divorce, it is really expensive compared to flowers.  Have you written your kids a note telling them something good they did?

Try it, my kids are in their 30s and they still love to hear from pop.

Let your face know you’re happy. If you smile your mood will change fast.

Another secret, when I am around someone that has the blues I always ask them if their best spotted pig just died?

They say, “What are you talking about?”

I share with them how they are acting. If that does not work it is time for someone to leave.  It does not matter to me who it is, but I am not going to let someone else steal my positive attitude. Flush them and move on.

That, my friend, is how to be happy.

In order to be happy, forgive the people that have done you wrong and move on, one of my best friends at one time was mad because someone beat him out of over $140k.

I said look where that has gotten him … he is divorced, lost his best friend in the world and has money problems.  Look at yourself, you’re happy, have a great family and are not worried about money. Think about it, karma has a way of taking care of a thing called life.  Have a great day! I promise I am!
