5. Shifting Perspective
What would it take to make you happy? Think about your answer for a moment, because we have reasons to be happy every day, even if the world around us seems to have come unglued.
Some of you think that if you only had this or that particular thing you would be happy. Others believe that if you were only in love with someone wonderful, who loved you back, then you would be happy. And there are probably still others who believe that if God would work a miracle and cure you or someone you love of an illness, that would make you happy.
But here is the thing: 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 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. Take a moment. You will see an abundance of beauty in your life, regardless of your surroundings or circumstances, if you will only look for it. You will be adopting the “attitude of gratitude.”
Once you can see it – appreciate it! Not just intellectually – let it give you real joy. Yes, it may be raining at the moment, and it’s a mess to walk or drive in it. However, look at what it’s doing for the flowers, the fruit trees, the air! It’s all in your perspective. You see, the time to be happy is now, the place to be happy is here, and the reasons to be happy are all around us.
So, what are you waiting for? Decide for yourself. Shift your perspective. Choose to be happy. See how that change affects everything else you think, see and do! ~The Pacific Institute
6. Non-Profit Organization Seeks Local Host Families for High School Exchange Students
ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE), in cooperation with your community high school, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries: Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan, to name a few.
ASSE students are enthusiastic and excited to experience American culture while they practice their English. They also love to share their own culture and language with their host families. Host families welcome these students into their family, not as a guest, but as a family member, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience.
The exchange students have pocket money for personal expenses and full health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are selected based on academics and personality, and host families can choose their student from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.
To become an ASSE Host Family or to find out how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call the ASSE Western Regional Office at 1-800-733-2773 or go to http://www.host.asse.com to begin your host family application. Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today!
