This week, let’s talk about happiness. I prefer to call it joy, which I believe to be more lasting and more profound.
Happiness, it has been said countless times, is always a choice. Easier said than done, but every morning, we have that option—“Will I choose joy or will I wallow in whatever it is that is getting me down?” One of my favorite websites is a place called the Daily Good because it is always filled with stories and articles that provoke and inspire, and yes, help you find what is good in your life.
Dana writes that to be happier, you must learn to give up your need to always be right. “There are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong—wanting to always be right—even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s just not worth it,” she says.
