Happiness isn’t something that just happens to you if you’re lucky. Happiness can be practiced.

It’s like a muscle. In many, it’s like a muscle that is too seldom used and has become puny. Build your happiness muscle! Practice happiness; practice appreciation.

When you walk through any door, pause and find something to appreciate. When you get in or out of your car; when you turn a corner; when you answer the phone; when you’re shopping for groceries; when you’re waiting in line — all day long, in every situation, find something to appreciate.

Practice appreciation assiduously. You’ll be happy you did!
