    Lisa Kamen Inspire Me Today1. You make the choice.
    Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

    2. Focus on today, not yesterday or what is to come.
    “When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” ~ Helen Keller

    3. Be grateful for what you have.
    We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

    4. Help someone else find happiness.
    Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

    5. Get rid of some of your less valuable desires.
    You can never get enough of what you don’t need to make you happy.” ~ Eric Hoffer

    6. Do what you enjoy doing.
    Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” ~ Albert Schweitzer

    7. At the very least do something to fill your time.
    “Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

    Happiness is an inside job®.
