You don’t have reason to be happy—make it up.

We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be—which takes care of everything. Even if you don’t have reason to be happy—make it up. Fantasize it. Make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another—no matter what. “No matter what, I’m going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I’m going to be happy. If I never have to see that person’s face again, I’m going to be happy. If I have to see that person’s face, I’m going to find something to see in that person’s face that makes me happy. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to be happy.” —Abraham

This is my happy place. Water intense color and nature all around exploding making my senses alive. This little painting hangs on the wall by my computer. It is a reminder. Where I am and where I need to return to now. Not that exact place but to that feeling and emotion of joy delight and happiness. Simple if you know where the switch is to turn life on. Happy is simple and when you feel happy hold it, explore it, revel in it and know it. When things slip and you become a little doubtful and you will because life is a work always in progress, you can bring up the emotion you now are intimately joined to and happiness will elevate you back to the right path in your life.

Get to know happy and hang on tight for the ride of your lifetime.
