54. The Secret To Happiness: Make It Yourself

"There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way." - Thich Nhat Hanh

Our brains are so crazy, the way they work. For example...

Q: "Virginia... What are you going to do if you get accepted to grad school in 2012?"


Me: "I am going to be TOTALLY HAPPY!"


:-)


Q: "Virginia... What are you going to do if you DON'T get accepted to grad school in 2012?"


Me: "I am going to be TOTALLY HAPPY!"


:-)

LOL!!! It's TRUE! I absolutely WILL be happy no matter what the outcome of this pursuit of grad school acceptance.

What? You don't believe me doooo yoooou?

Weeeell, watch the video below and see what you think...

This is one of my all-time favorite TED Talks on the subject of HAPPINESS. 

(TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out, in 1984, as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.)

If the above embedded video doesn't work you can access a link HERE.

If you THINK you are happy... guess what? YOU ARE HAPPY.

Make your own happiness! 

Enjoy!

Joyfully,
Virginia
