Make Mine Mystery

Making it a Goal to be Happy!

So many people get caught up in what they think will make them happy but, in my opinion, this is where the fail. Happiness is not about doing its about being.
If you allow yourself to be in that moment, happiness will follow.
The world would be a better place if we chased our dreams and fulfilling our potential. I’m extremely fortunate that my husband has always supported my dream of being first, a real estate agent, broker, a college student, a person with a degree in communicative disorders, a counselor, and a psychologist, an equestrian, artist, and now an author. I’m not tooting my own horn by any means. I’m just letting you know what my husband has put up with so I can fulfill my dreams. And I have to say, I’m very happy…even when I get rejected, I know I just have to figure out why and fix it.
Here are five quotes to think about on your journey to happiness:
5. “Rules of happiness, something to do, Someone to love, Something to hope for.” –Immanuel Kant
4. “The secret of happiness is freedom; the secret of freedom is courage.” –Thucydiels.
3. True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating something new.” –Dillip Bathja
2. Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” –Margaret Lee Runsbeck.
1.    My favorite: “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” -Abraham Lincoln.

Having a supportive husband certainly means a lot. I have one of those too and I feel blessed.
