If you could have any one thing in life, absolutely anything, what would it be? Good health, a better job? Prosperity? A long life? Get married? Better looks? A better marriage? What? What?
If you think about it for just a second… no matter which answer you choose, I could point out someone who has exactly what you want and yet is unhappy and probably miserable.
You probably think I’m foolish to choose…HAPPINESS. For me, happiness is a heartfelt joy like no other. Happiness is something that’s consistent, persistent, and lasting and that’s why I made the choice to be happy.
Remember acquiring anything that lacks eternal purpose or value is empty in its power to provide true happiness. No matter what material things that you and I acquire in life, they will soon lose their appeal, and temporary happiness they provided us will subside.
I honestly believe we should be happy and grateful for a wealth of things in our lives and days that we take completely for granted. I can tell you this…if you just read this message, thank God for life.
