Often we are reminded, not to judge a book by its cover. In this case, the book cover itself is very inviting. Gives me a feeling of peace, tranquil, settled…. and it says “Simple secrets to a happy life” by Luci Swindoll.
Who doesn’t want to be happy? I do! And if this book is going to help me get a step closer to achieving greater happiness, I am so reading it.
This is another book that I can’t seem to put it down once I started reading it. It’s a simple journal on how Luci does things, events that happened in her life, lessons she learnt that eventually lead her to live a life that is happy. And of all of the 50secrets she shared, it’s simple.. real simple…
OF course, not every secrets work for everyone. I found myself nodding to a few of it and glad that I am starting to agree that really should be put into practice.
One of it is Be on time for everything. I believe in this cause when we are on time, we are sending a message across to that person, that event or that particular thing that he/she/it is important to us. And we all know it takes effort for one to commit to something, and we know one taken things seriously by being on time. This is one of the thing that I know would please me and therefore I should practice it myself.
Find Contentment in doing without.
This is my favorite. Once I thought, by having more, it equals to bringing more joy or happiness to my life. IT IS FALSE! Luci mentioned your happiness comes from counting your blessings, not your cash. I couldn’t agree more! And this is what I am personally learning to live with it, and God has shown His grace and hopefully one day people around me that is important to me will share my sentiment.
