Reflection on a Famous Quote – August 29, 2012, by Danny J. Stevens

“A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.”

~ Hugh Downs

I know I have stated something like, I will be happy when I complete this course or I will be happy if I get a certain position.  I have been situations where I should have been happy and yet it didn’t feel any different than before the event occurred.   How could that be?  Because we can change how we feel in a snap of a finger.  It is not the event or circumstance, it is the attitude I am in which makes me feel happy.    Change your thoughts and you can place yourself in the attitude of being happy within seconds.

Have you ever wanted to feel upset and down and you pet came over to you wanting to play?  If you are not cruel to the animal playing with the pet you may find you’re happy.  Listening to a great song can swing your mood to being happy.  What kind of things do you do that help you to feel happy?
