My wife and I went at Costco today. One of the ladies handing out a vitamin drink in little cups approached us and had a contagious happiness that just radiated from her.
We talked with her for a few minutes and her positive energy brought smiles to our faces.
I asked her what I’ve been asking everyone. “what is happiness to you” and “how do you become and/or stay happy?”
It turns out that she is always happy. Her definition of happiness is “being alive.”. Her parents were happy (genetics is 50% of happiness) so she enjoys the same positive feelings about life that her parents did.
She also brought up something that I hear from a lot of “happy – positive” people. She said that she avoids negative people and negative situations whenever she can.
Great advice. Try it as much as you can. You’ll find that keeping negative people away from you will bring happiness to you.
