Pause For Thought
With Father Brian D’Arcy, a Catholic Passionist priest.
Years ago I studied in Chicago. The author John Powell gave us a talk called “Happiness Is An Inside Job,” He said when life is tough we can still be happy because happiness is an inside job. God wants us to be happy both in this world and in the next.
I jotted down what I thought were his Ten Commandments of Happiness.
So here’s my Top Tenuous Tips for happiness.
The first was “We must accept ourselves as we are. I am who I am and all the wishing in the world won’t change me. Just play the hand your dealt.
(2). There is no point blaming others for the choices I make. I have to accept responsibility for my life and the choices I make.
(3). Choose a balanced life. Work, Relax, Exercise, Eat properly. Have fun too.
(4). Learn to love what you have to do. Help others out of love and not because you have to.
(5). Challenge is a necessary part of life. Don’t get stuck in a rutt. Be brave and move out of the comfort zones.
(6). See the positive instead of the negative. Make life a discovery of what is good.
(7). Stop trying to be perfect. The perfect is the enemy of the good. Wanting to be prefect will destroy you.
(8). Powell added that being able to express yourself well, is an important part of happiness. Effective communication of how you feel - your doubts, your feelings, your hopes and desires - helps others to understand you.
(9). Have a higher power, and spend time reflecting with that Higher Power.
I remember thinking then as I do now, that this is all plain common sense. I believe most of us are happier than we realise. So Don’t be guilty; ‘Don’t worry – be happy’.
