Wednesday Wisdom…what have you done today for happiness tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€


Happy Wednesday…๐Ÿ˜€

If you want to be happy tomorrow you need to begin working at it today. It’s just that simple..

Some people spend their lives waiting for happiness to arrive on its own and it never comes. Others work hard at creating wealth but still arenโ€™t happy, discovering that money only brings a whole different set of problems. Happiness is a state of mind and not the size of your bank account. Happiness is emotional and not physical. Each individual needs to work at creating their own happiness.

I like how Richard Bach, the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, put it when he said, โ€œIf your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.โ€

To find happiness you first have to understand where happiness comes from. Memories are to the mind what a mirror is to the eyes – a reflection. The mirror reflects the physical while our memories reflect the emotional. When you look in the mirror it reflects what you look like; when you look in your mind it reflects who you are. One big difference between the two is that you can change what you see in the mirror but you canโ€™t change the memories reflected in your mind.

We tend to spend a lot of time trying to improve what we see in the mirror, but little or no effort trying to improve our thoughts. Every action creates a memory. Do you really think that the person who is bitter and angry today was happy and cheerful yesterday? If a person says or does something which angers or upsets us, we can either add to the painful memory with our own negative actions or we can replace them with positive actions and create positive memories.

If you want to be happy tomorrow you must choose carefully what you do today, because todayโ€™s actions will be reflected in tomorrowโ€™s memories and you can not make them go away. Everything you do today will be in tomorrowโ€™s reflection. The next time a person angers you, instead of lashing out, try imagining that you are holding up a mirror that bounces the reflection back at him, knowing that his actions or words are a reflection of him and not of you.

We all want to like what we see in the mirror. To be truly happy we also have to like what we see reflected in our minds. What the mirror reflects is not nearly as powerful as what the mind reflects, for it reflects our words and actions.๐Ÿ’—

What will your reflections be filled with?

Will your reflections/memories be filled with goodness and joy or with bitterness and anger?

What have you done today that will bring you happiness tomorrow?๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hope this post gives you something to think about….๐Ÿค”

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
