Did you see 20/20 last Friday?  Asheville was named the Happiest Place to Live in America.  Is happy a place, person, or thing?  No.  And, you can’t even stumble upon it.  Happy is a decision and the committment to personal excellence that makes the decision to be happy a reality. Now, don’t be sad.  This is great news.  This means you don’t have to wait, hope, pray for happiness. It’s not in your next paycheck, or your next relationship.  It’s right there inside of you and within your absolute control. In feast and in famine you can be happy.  Here’s 3 suggestions on cultivating happiness.

1. Put on a smile (even when you aren’t really feeling it)

2. Take a positive approach to your thinking and perceptions of your circumstances

3. Count your blessings

 Oh, and it doesn’t hurt to live in the happiest place in America. Call me if your ready to move.!!

Sorry, had to throw that one in there.  Here’s wishing you a happy day.
