5. Urban-Rural Gathering, Melting Mountains, Update on YouTube Live

In a recent posting of the Seattle blog, The Everygrey, we read, “Remember that trip some of you took with us to Sherman County, Oregon, the county nearest to King County that voted opposite us in the election? We’ve gotten a lot of questions from people here and around the country about how we put it together, and how there might be more events like it.” Subscribe here: theevergrey.com.

On Friday, March 24th, Monica and Anika of The Evergrey answered those questions on YouTube Live. You can see and hear it here, a recorded version.

8. Happiness is a Choice

What would it take to make you happy?

Some people think that if they only had this or that particular thing or a certain amount of money, they would be happy. Others believe that if they were only in love with someone wonderful who loved them back, then they would be happy. And there are still others who believe that if a miracle would occur and cure someone they love of an illness, then that would make them happy. And they would all be correct.

But there is something else in the mix, something that takes happiness to another level. You see, happiness is a choice you make, not something that does or doesn’t happen to you. You can choose to be happy right now, no matter what you have or don’t have.

The first step toward finding your own happiness is gratitude. If you develop and heighten your powers of appreciation by focusing on the beauty in your life instead of the imperfections, you will be halfway there.

It is a guarantee that you will see an abundance of beauty in your life, regardless of your surroundings or circumstances, if only you will look for it. Once you can see it, appreciate it! And not just intellectually. Let it give you real joy.

Let’s face it – life is too short to be unhappy. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. And the reasons to be happy are all around you. So, what are you waiting for? ~ The Pacific Institute
