Public Consumption

In this day and age of mass distribution of intimate details, what do you consider your most unique characteristic?

Just for today are you able to eke out a quiet half hour all by yourself to relax to get a better perspective of your life?

Is today sufficient to tackle one problem without sustaining the solution for a lifetime?

Do you believe as Lincoln says that most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be?”

Is there something you should study to strengthen your mind, something useful?

Are you able to exercise your soul in three ways: does somebody a good turn and not get found out; if anyone knows about it, it will not count? Do at least two things you don’t want to do—just for exercise. Don’t show anyone your feelings are hurt even though they are hurt?

Is being agreeable to much to ask for today: Dress becomingly, keeping your voice low, being courteous, criticizing not one bit, not finding fault with anything, nor trying to improve or regulate anybody but yourself?

Wonder if I can accomplish even one suggestion today?

  1. “Do you believe as Lincoln says that most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be?” Yes, Rohn, I do believe this. It’s also been shown that if you smile, your attitude improves and you feel better. (Same with laughter.) Frowning leads to depression. So smile.

  2. Excellent thoughts to consider. I do believe that people are as happy as they choose to be.

  3. I agree that happiness is a choice. Prayer, positive thinking, and an offbeat sense of humor got me through cancer surgery seven years ago and two surgeries for a broken hip this year. A combination of laughter, optimism, and adding your name to your congregation’s prayer list is the best medicine there is. Happy is as happy does. 🙂

  4. Some deep thoughts! It’s good to take the time every now and again and take stock in yourself. Life gets so hectic you end up racing through your days without knowing what you’ve really accomplished. But when looking to yourself for areas of improvement, be sure to also note where you have done well along the way. Thanks for sharing!
