Prescription for Happiness

(Read at least one time each day, preferably the first thing in the morning)

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life,
ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did!
And because I did, I'm going to celebrate!

Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far:
the accomplishments, the many blessings, and yes, even the hardships
because they have served to make me stronger. I will go through this day
with my head held high, and a happy heart. I will marvel at God's seemingly
simple gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the
birds. Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.

Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people. I'll make
someone smile. I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of
kindness for someone I don't even know.

Today, I'll give a sincere complement to someone who seems down. I'll tell a
child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for
her and how much she means to me.

Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being
grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me. I'll remember
that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine
plan ensures everything will be just fine.

And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the
heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I
will praise God for these magnificent treasures.

As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank the
Almighty for the best day of my life. And I will sleep the sleep of a contented
child, excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be the
best day of my life, ever!
