Are you HAPPY today? Why not? What stops you from being happy? (Okay, maybe some of you answered, "Yes." Good for you =)
I love Pharrell's song, "Happy!" It makes me smile thinking of the title. No, I am not in the dark about the release date of this song (My kids LOVE Despicable Me 2), but I wanted to share this song today because it is so relevant to my life.
If you Google, "Happiness," Wikipedia will tell you that happiness is, "a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy."
President Monson shares in an article, “Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.” -Joseph Smith
He also goes on to share this:
Some people are always in search of happiness. Others know right where it's at. How can we become more happy? Happy with our circumstances, with our adversity, our trials, our "Epic Fails," our disappointments in life? The answer that always rings true in my experience is to rely upon our Creator, our Heavenly Father. It may be best to actively seek the good in all things. Push the bad stuff aside, leave it behind and press forward.
