Are you happy?
Are you happy now, at this very moment?
If you are unhappy, what is keeping your from experiencing happiness?
How much happiness do you experience in your daily life, versus unhappiness?
Someone tells you a nasty thing, and this make you feel unhappy for the rest of the day, with thoughts and feelings of anger filling your mind all day long.
You wake up late, and therefore, have to hurry to work, skipping your breakfast and the morning paper. How do you feel, stressed and angry with yourself?
You want to do something, but it does not work out. Do you feel frustrated?
There are a lot of small and insignificant things happening every day. If you choose to take them personally, you invite unhappiness into your life.
Do all these small events, situations, and plans that don’t work out, really important? Will you still remember them next week?
Is it really important what this or that person said or did? Why take everything too personally, and become unhappy as a result?
