Linda: There is a strong element of choice in our level of happiness. Indeed we do decide to be happy, but that’s only for starters. Then we are challenged to CULTIVATE happiness by actively pursuing the practices that give rise to it. The very same practices that assist in the process of bringing our happiness level up are identical to those that improve our relationships. We can get started by rating our level of happiness on a scale of 0 to 10. If we want to bring our well-being quotient up, consider taking on the following practices:

  • Gratitude: Cultivate the attitude of gratitude. At the end of each day, say aloud or write in your journal that for which you are grateful.

Of the above practices, you will see that some are strong and well developed, while others need attention. Congratulate yourself on those that are well established, and then zero in on those that need more attention. They are the areas that constitute your growing edge and that will boost your happiness. When you take on the pursuit of happiness in a specific way, you are likely to see your score go up from your efforts. Enjoy the journey.
