Happy Ness

If you were told that you have more control over your state of mind - and that while JOY may come in the morning, it could also come right now!  Would you believe it?  If you're like most, you've tied your happiness to the "IF's" and "Whens" of the future. . . When the economy picks up, When I lose a few pounds, When I find Love, IF I win the Lottery.  We are more likely to sabotage our own happiness simply by having unrealistic expectations of what JOY should look and feel like. Researchers have found that when people put pressure on themselves to feel blissful, they end up disappointed. Rather than viewing happiness as a goal you barrel toward, think of it as a by-product of feeling that your life is meaningful.
