Lately it seems almost everyone is either depressed, worried, intolerant or in a rotten mood. Negativity is everywhere you look from Wall Street to Main Street from the pulpit to the family kitchen table. Sure the country is in a recession, but surprise – it’s not the end of the world! Who says you can’t be happy and broke? A halo doesn’t go with everything and is just something to worry about losing.

Happiness begins in the brain, the most important ‘feel good’ organ of all. Before you can be happy, you have to believe you can be happy – and change any thinking that stands in the way.

Happiness is a healthy state of mind which we must take control of for ourselves.

Deciding to be happy can be as simple as tossing a coin in the air and saying: “Heads I’ll be happy, tails I’ll be unhappy!”

The unhappiness that we fear is often not deep rooted but simply the flip-side of happiness –we must allow ourselves the freedom to accept that sometimes problems have to be faced from different angles in order to find solutions.

Like flipping that coin, finding your own happiness is like finding the source of a great river that has been dammed up by others trying to make you happy!
