Can You Teach Someone To Be Happy?

Can you teach someone to be happy?   The articles say you have to find happiness within yourself.  Nobody can make you happy.

I have mixed feelings on that.  

I know listening to music makes me happy.    OK, so I make myself happy. However, I know a person who makes me smile just by thinking of her. Being with her” makes me happy.” She has such a fun personality; I wish I could be around her every day. Therefore, someone else can make me happy.

I was happy when my sons were growing up; they brought joy into my life daily. What makes me most happy is when every one of my family is together.  Extreme happiness?  My seven wonderful, treasures. Grandchildren!

My Happiness   . . . . . .   My family all in good health

                                             A phone call from a close friend

                                              A book or magazine in the mail

                                              A favorite relative surprise visit.

                                               An unexpected thinking of you card

                                               When I make bread from scratch

                                               Out of plain cloth I do a counted cross stitch                                                piece

There are so many things that make me happy and I’m sure they make you happy also.

 I enjoy being around people.   In addition, I enjoy my own company (when I have to. :-)

How do you feel ?
