Secrets to Happiness - Part 1

Secrets to Happiness Part 1
This is for everyone out there looking to be Happy!  (Who doesn't want to be happy right?) 

The Difference Between Happiness and Pleasure
by: Bo Sanchez

A thick wad of 1,000 pesos bills gives pleasure.
A chocolate parfait with thick chocolate syrup gives pleasure.
A fun movie, with a bucket of popcorn on the side, gives pleasure.
A roller coaster ride gives pleasure.
A kiss gives pleasure.

What's the difference between pleasure and happiness?

Pleasure is an outside job.
But happiness is an inside job.

It doesn't depend on any external circumstances.  Yep,  even if you only have three strands of hair on your head.  Happiness isn't the absence of problems.  By the way, do you want me to show you a few people who don't have problems? Great.  Bring your shovel out and let's dig them up from their graves. 

The Bible doesn't say, "Be joyful sometimes."  Or "Be joyful when you don't have problems."  The Bible says "Be joyful always."

Is that possible? I mean, c'mon.  No one can be happy 365 days a year.
But the Bible says, "Be joyful always" because happiness isn't a mood.
Happiness isn't an emotion either.

Happiness is a way of life.
