Thursday Thought

 I have really been struggling lately. Life has been really hard. The other day when I was reading on my lunch break, I came across this quote and I just smiled to myself.

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." Abraham Lincoln

That's a great quote, right? I'd read this quote before, but reading it again made it hit home for me just a little bit more. It helped me refocus and change my mindset.

Even though life is hard right now, I can still be happy. Happiness is a choice and I choose to be happy!

Things that increase my happiness:
  • The gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Studying the scriptures
  • Talking and visiting with family
  • Uplifting music
  • Exercise
  • Healthy food
  • Good sleep 
  • A clean house
  • Being productive
  • Expressing gratitude
  • Serving
What makes you happy?

"Think of a wonderful thought. Any merry little thought."
