Cheerfulness

Today’s Quote: Cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity. ~Joseph Addison

Today’s Affirmation:  The cheer of my spirit is the joy of my heart and the sunshine of my soul.  I Am Happy Today!

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Happiness is a choice. In every single moment it is up to me to be the happiness I seek; it is up to me to change and maintain my thoughts.  The reward is the gift of positive habits.  What I create with discipline becomes my automatic state of being and the state which is reflected in my encounters.

Cheerfulness

Today’s Quote: I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. ~Martha Washington

Today’s Affirmation:  Upon my foundation of gratitude I determine greater happiness for me today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: True happiness springs from a sense of belonging and acceptance. Therefore whatever we do to remind ourselves of the generosity of Life Itself and our intrinsic place of belonging within it will add to our own joy.  Whatever we give to remind others of our oneness and the joy accompanying this memory will further deepen our own Happiness.  Happy Holidays to all.
