Be Happy, Don’t Worry

Here is an incredible example of controlling your circumstances.  A famous writer George Bernard Shaw penned this profound idea:  “All too often people blame their circumstances for what they are.  The people who get ahead in life, are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, they make them!”
The following is a example of finding the circumstances you want.
 
The Happiness Bank
The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her
hair fashionably coiffured and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing
home today.

Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in
the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet woodssheets that had been hung on her window. “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy. “Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room, just wait.”

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,”she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged.. it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories  I’ve stored away just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account: you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories.
Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.”

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2 Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5 Expect less
