Life...

...is truly what you make it

Once in a while I need to remind myself that Happiness is a CHOICE
I have the power to stop a negative thought and choose to replace it with a good one

"Happiness comes as a result of our obedience and our courage in
always doing the will of God, even in the most difficult circumstances.
When the prophet Lehi warned the inhabitants of Jerusalem, they mocked him,
and, as with other ancient prophets, they sought to take away his life. I
quote the prophet Nephi: 'I . . . will show unto you that the tender
mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of
their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance' (1
Nephi 1:20). . . .

"Yes, we find happiness in the midst of the
trial of our faith. The Lord manifests Himself to us through His tender
mercies, which we find along the road of happiness. We see with increased
clarity His hand in our lives.

"Happiness is a condition of the
soul. This joyous state comes as a result of righteous living."
~Benjamin De Hoyos, "True Happiness: A Conscious Decision"
