Intentional Happiness

Good morning Mintdom,

Yesterday, I asked the question, “Is happiness genetic?”  I told you that I would let you know my opinion, and here it is. I believe it is a combination of genetics, circumstances, self-awareness, and choice.  I think choice is the biggest factor.  Genetics and some circumstances are out of your control. I do think that no matter what happens in your life, it is more about how you handle your circumstances that contributes to your happiness. I am also intentional about surrounding myself with positive people; I read positive books; and I listen to positive music. 

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Herman Cain
Here is my happiness question for today:

Do you make time each day for complete silence?

Studies show that just 10 minutes of sitting and breathing each day will give you a happiness boost.  If you believe these studies, would you be more inclined to practice sitting quietly each day?

AffirMINTion: I enjoy my quiet time each morning.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

Life is Minty Fresh!
