Be happy by giving happiness

 We all want happiness. We all need appreciation. We all crave for recognition. We all want to be applauded. We all desire to be called as good and lovely human beings. We are all looking for this certificate from our friends, family and our partner. This makes us happy. This makes us feel good about ourselves. This gives us new confidence in ourselves. This all gives us a new and positive self esteem, which is very important. Here is the secret of how to get happiness: do all this for others.  Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ (Acts 20:35) If no one is praising us,  praise others. Let us do all that we want others to do to us. Let us give love, affection, appreciation, and let us applaud others even for a very small victory. Will this help us? It helps us immediately.

Be happy by living in the moment

We all know that living in the past can drag a person down, but why? And what about living in the future?

Be happy by knowing your life purpose?

Everyone has a life purpose.  There is something about you that  makes you a unique gift to the world. If you have not discovered this about yourself yet, your self-esteem will suffer, as will your happiness. There are many questionnaires and books dedicated to discovering your life purpose. Consider investing your time to learn more and find what makes you feel most fulfilled in life. Plan a significant amount of time to study the Bible and pray. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. (Psalm 119:15) Being happy is not a frivolous desire. It is important to know how you are wired and what it takes to be happy with yourself and your life. By asking yourself these questions and then taking a moment to think about your answers, you will be well on your way to a life of true happiness.

Animal rescue from Afghanistan: was Pen Farthing right?

The rescue of animals by Paul "Pen" Farthing has garnered criticism in that he brought animals out of Afghanistan from Kabul airport whilst many humans were left stranded.
