It’s Your Duty to Be Happy: People Skills

By Shawnaschuh
Happy Dog

If you interact with people – and don’t we all…

You may have noticed the frequent complaining that many people fall into.

Money matters, relationships, challenges with health.

It’s easy to complain – which is why this quote is so important for us to read:

“Not only is there a right to be happy, there is a duty to be happy. So much sadness exists in the world that we are all under obligation to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers.”  John S. Bonnell

This really got me thinking because a lot of people speak out on how we need to watch our carbon footprint, recycle and watch our waste and excess –

However no one is speaking about how the simple tactic of being happy can make a larger and stronger impact than almost anything –

Imagine our nation if everyone was bound to be happy – how much joy and prosperity that would spread? And it’s within our power!

According to John S. Bonnell – it is our DUTY to be happy – our fore fathers fought and died for that right as our current courageous soldiers continue to do.

Be happy today – spread happy today – give smiles, compliments and love to everyone you can – it’s what you can do.

It’s also a great reminder to remember those who have died for our rights and freedoms to be happy –

You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!

Blessings, Shawna
