Did you know that trying to make someone else happy may have exactly the opposite effect on you?
In four experiments conducted at Harvard and Stanford, researchers asked study subjects to determine which of two methods listed below made them feel happier:
- make someone happy
- make someone smile.
Just found a very good poem by Steve Maraboli
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
As you begin this New Year, you have the opportunity to start fresh, let go of the past, move forward and make things happen!
I copied “The 12 Steps to Living a Happy Life in 2013” from Sonia Ricotti. I hope you enjoy it (if so, pass it on to others and spread the word)!
I would also LOVE to hear your comments on my Facebook page. : )

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel.” The human body has 256 locations where energy is focused out of which seven are major locations. These locations are called chakras because they are very similar to a wheel. These locations are where we as humans receive and transmit our life energies.
To understand the doctrine of reincarnation, the concept that humans have lived past lives, one must first come to an understanding of the concept of Karma. Karma is a Sandskrit word that means “action”. Karma is not the result of an action but is the action itself. The current circumstances in which one finds oneself in this life is directly linked to their Karma; their actions. All thought and action that one has had in the past and in the present, determines the future conditions of a person’s physical existence.
There are those, especially within the followers of Science, who tend to believe, and preach, that negative emotions are healthy and should be expressed. They also preach that such negative emotions should be ignored or channeled into some manner of positive or benign state. These, unfortunately, are some of the current mindsets on how to release negative emotions.
I wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
