The Secret
Well I have received this thought provoking short story through a forward mail and I found it truly worth sharing so here it is for all my readers, hope you all gonna understand and follow this in your life and have a happy, peaceful life..
One day, one friend asked another, "How is it that you are always so happy? You have so much energy, and you never seem to get down." With her eyes smiling, she said, "I know the Secret!"... "What secret is that?" to which she replied, "I'll tell you all about it, but you have to promise to share the Secret with others." "The Secret is this: I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy. I must depend on God to make me happy and to meet my needs. When a need arises in my life, I have to trust God to supply according to HIS riches. I have learned most of the time I don't need half of what I think I do. He has never let me down. Since I learned that 'Secret,' I am happy." The questioner's first thought was, "That's too simple!" But upon reflecting over her own life she recalled how she thought a bigger house would make her happy, but it didn't! She thought a better paying job would make her happy, but it hadn't. When did she realize her greatest happiness? Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren, playing games, eating pizza or reading a story, a simple gift from God. Now you know it too! We can't depend on people to make us happy. Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that. So trust God!
Best Regards,
Samrina

A wonderful story Samrina. It is the small things that make us happiest. There's nothing wrong with having things - it's when one is attached to them that a problem arises.

Obviously we can't depend for others to make us happy.Happiness is the feeling deep within us...the inner values.The more you allow your own deeply held values to guide your moment-to-moment thoughts and actions, the more fulfilling and joyful life will become.

There is real and inexhaustible value in the authentic person you are.Let your life express it in everything you do and be satisfied with what you have and always thankful to God.

Have a blessed day my dear.
