Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
~ Aristotle


"Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress."

“Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
~ Unknown

"Outstanding jobs, salaries, lives just don't 'happen' to people- they require thought, direction, goals, and action."
~ Cathlyn Driscoll

Happiness is an inner state of well being. A state of well being enables you to profit from your highest: thoughts, wisdom, intelligence, common sense, emotions, health, and spiritual values in your life.
~ Lionel Ketchian

What is Your Impact?

What kind of 'refuge' are you for family and friends? What do they come away with? I want people to experience an uplifting moment. Something positive that they can share with others. :-)

Doing Happiness
What do you do daily to create your own happiness? Recently, I saw some trash on the ground outside our fast food restaurant. I thought, "They should really clean that up." As I walked to the door, my husband bent down and collected the trash and brought it into the fast food place and disposed of it. He did the right thing. He is a beautiful example of doing the right thing. Doing the right thing makes us happy. He was doing happiness. I learned a lesson that day.

Change can ultimately be a good thing- even when it starts off looking the opposite.
~ Cathlyn Driscoll

Being Positive
"Individuals who are positive in their thoughts always tend to look upon the brighter side of life. With their faces turned toward the sunshine, they attempt to see the good, even in the bad. Such individuals habitually think thoughts of a positive nature and they are a blessing to the world. They are in a Positive Vibration, and therefore attract other positive personalities to them."

~ Bob Proctor

"Refuse to let your present results influence your thinking. Keep reminding yourself that you have a power within you that is superior to any condition or circumstance you may encounter enroute to your goal."

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
