DRUM - - Ed's Notes - SP MOF­FAT, EMAIL

YOU may think some peo­ple have no problems be­cause they al­ways seem to be happy, while you shoul­der end­less bur­dens.

But you need to stop com­par­ing your in­side to some­one else’s out­side. The seem­ingly happy peo­ple you envy may have the same feel­ings about you.

Peo­ple with a more pos­i­tive outlook choose hap­pi­ness. They may not do it con­sciously be­cause it has be­come a habit.

Don’t go look­ing for all the riches in the world to achieve hap­pi­ness. That’s a waste of en­ergy, time and emo­tions.

Sim­ply adopt a habit of hap­pi­ness. Be proud of your­self and your abil­ity to make things hap­pen.

Be grate­ful for what you have, no mat­ter how lit­tle it is. So­cialise with pos­i­tive peo­ple who en­courage you to be your best self.

It’s stren­u­ous and use­less to strive for per­fec­tion.

Strive for ex­cel­lence be­cause this is your life. You don’t need some­one else’s ap­proval to be happy. The choice is yours.
