The intention to be happy

I came across an old Swedish proverb that really got me thinking. I read it in a great book I highly recommend called “How We Choose To Be Happy” by Rick Foster and Greg Hicks.  The proverb is this: Those who wish to sing always find a song.  I started to think about this.  The idea is that we can decide to be happy.  We can wake up in the morning and decide on happiness, we can go through the moments of our day  pausing to remember our waking intention. We can go to bed at night noting (re-membering) the happy highlights of the day.  As I sat back and read the Sunday paper this afternoon and I saw so much that was negative… I put the paper down and sat outside for a minute, enjoying the first day of daylight savings time and the extra light late in the day.  And remembered my intention…  Those who wish to sing always find a song…
