Lesson Number Forty-Five: The best is yet to come.

This is my prayer for today and for all the days that come in my life. I am not contented with the mediocrity of my present because it is the result of my mediocre thinking and mediocre prayers of the days past. Now that I am fully convinced of the greatness of God, and that I could make happen God's greatness in my life I now pray and believe that the best is yet to come in my life.
Try believe and thinking for yourself this way and you'll know the amount of happiness you will feel just by the thought of the best that is coming your way. It's so good. It's so nice. It's so beautiful. Try it. You will lose nothing.

Get happy!

Regina Brett's Fifty Life Lessons: The Forty-Sixth Lesson

Lesson Number Forty-Six: No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

There is no one who can best carry our wounded or battered selves than us. If, for example the pain is too strong and heavy enough to carry, then we just have to give ourselves time to cry and withdraw from the world for a while. However, to rehabilitate ourselves for long is no longer healthy. There are responsibilities we have to carry and work need to be done, or even people to care for. So, no matter what, we just have to get up, dress up and show up. The pain will subside in its due time if we just allow it. Nature has designed it to be. We just have to be strong, for there is that hidden strength within us ready to be realized. Moreover, God is always there for us.  Who could be against us?

Get happy!

Lesson Number Forty-Four: Envy is a waste of time.  You already have all you need.

I have a difficulty in relating to this because honestly, I do not have everything that other people have, and not all people have what I have, physically and materially speaking. But as to God my savior, the free air that I so infinitely breathe, the nature that I so love to see and be with, we, all of us have this. Envy has no power over these things.

However, envy is not that easy to let down. That is why, in the Ten Commandments of the Christian faith set by God, it is clearly stated to.... "not covet thy neighbor's wife and thy neighbor's goods." It is true that we also love to possess what our neighbor's possess. Instead of envying, God give us the power to appreciate and be happy for our neighbors. Most especially, He give us also the capacity to posses whatever it is we desire as long as it is in accordance with His divine will for us. So instead of focusing on envy, let us focus on the fulfillment of our dreams, wishes and aspirations because they are what make us whole and the best way to the fulfillment of our missions in life.

Stop envying and start getting happy!
