Fill your life with Love and Happiness

Would you like to know an easy little secret that is guaranteed to bring more happiness into your life? It is quick to learn and very easy to do. It really works.

Put simply, it is developing the habit of counting your (+) positives.

Life is a numbers game. Every day, you are surrounded with countless numbers. The number of friends you have, the number of breaths you take, the number of hours, minutes and seconds in your day.

Your happiness can be greatly enhanced by how you count your numbers.

For example, just imagine that you and 5 of your good friends have been planning to have a three weeks holiday together. At the last minute, one of your friends says that they can’t make it.

What do you spend your holiday thinking about?

Will you focus on all the exciting and fun activities that you and your (+4) friends can do together? Or will you spend the whole time regretting the (-1) friend who can’t make it? Which will put you in a better mood and allow you to experience a more enjoyable holiday?

What happens if instead of the full three weeks, you are only able to spend two weeks on holidays with your friends.Will you try to make every minute of these (+14) days as joyful and full of laughter as possible? Or will you be miserable the whole time because you have to cut (-7) days short off your holiday ?

Which approach will lead you to more happiness ?

One of life's little secrets is that counting your negatives only leads to more disappointment. When you count what you don't have (-) you interfere with your ability to enjoy what you (+) do have.

Many holy scriptures and ancient sages have put it like this

"Count your blessings"

This does not mean sitting around in a circle with an angelic look of mindless bliss on your face. It simply means making the effort to recognise and count all of the positive things in your own life.

Here is something worth thinking about.

How many days of good health did you enjoy last year ?

If you are like most people, you will have experienced far more days of good health than feeling ill in the past year. This is definitely a (+) positive!

Do you take your (+) good health for granted and mainly remember those (-) times when you were feeling ill? Or do you celebrate every day that you feel healthy ?

When you develop the habit of recognising all of the many good things that have a (+) positive sign in front of them, you allow yourself to experience much greater happiness.

On the other hand, if you spend your time and energy counting things that have a (-) negative sign in front of them, your life will only become more unfulfilled. Isn’t it interesting?

Take a couple of minutes, and really think about it.

There are so many good things in your own life that have a (+) in front of them. It is up to you to take the time to recognise them. Your (+) list is as long as you choose to make it.

So start counting your blessings and make a list of everything good in your life today.
