Make Happiness-A Habit of Life
Learn to be happy. It is so easy-just a matter of attitude.

Happiness is a state of mind, outcome of an attitude and an added gift when we have a positive frame of mind. It lies within us, but deep buried under the burden of everyday problems, fears, worries, failures, setbacks and confrontations. If we can uncover all these negative attachments and concentrate our minds on matters which make us happy it is ours forever. Be it a piece of good writing, a quotation, a song or a painting of the smile of a child, the sight and scent of flower, chirping of a bird, a flowing spring flying clouds or deep blue sky–anything that can dispel negativity from the mind–may bring instant happiness.
So learn to be happy. It is so easy-just a matter of attitude. Looking at things as they are not, as you wish to see them. Love life–life is happiness, happiness is life.
