I have the power to make myself happy today.
Everyone I know has the power to make themselves happy today.
Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, has the power to make themselves happy today.
In thinking about what would make me the most happy today, I came up with a very simple act.
I am doing food preservation through canning, and I decided the thing that would make me most happy was getting the canning jars ready by washing them.
A very simple thing.
I was so surprised!
Sometimes the thing that we can do to make ourselves happy is simple.
Even a complex thing consists of several simple steps.
When I make myself happy, I become the creative consultant.
I draw in all the ideas that are available to me.
I listen for more ideas.
Just the thought that I am the person who can make me happy is relaxing.
Some of the things which are supporting my happiness today is the fact that I am buying organic, fresh, good quality ingredients.
This builds on the happiness that my husband and I have been feeling better since I changed how we are eating.
I can return to this simple form of happiness over and over again, since food happens every single day.
I am glad to build my happiness on the many simple ordinary things that happen to me as well as big and rare events.
It gives me a constant presence of happiness in my life.
