Make Your Life Happy
Bro. Paul Ciniraj Mohamed
Make up your mind to be happy.
Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
Make the best of your circumstances.
No one has everything, and everyone has something
of sorrow intermingled with gladness of life.
The trick is to make the laughter outweigh the tears.
Donít take yourself too seriously.
Donít think that somehow you should be protected
from misfortune that befalls other people.
You canít please everybody.
Donít let criticism worry you.
Donít let your neighbor set your standards.
Do the things you enjoy doing but stay out of debt.
Never borrow trouble.
Imaginary things are harder to bear than real ones.
Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish jealousy, enmity, grudges.
Avoid people who make you unhappy.
Have many interests.
If you canít travel, read about new places.
Donít hold postmortems.
Donít spend your time brooding over sorrows or mistakes.
Donít be one who never gets over things.
Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
Keep busy at something.
A busy person never has time to be unhappy.
And the last; but not least-
To know lasting happiness,
get to know the love of eternal God personally.
