A Thought for the Week

by John M Grimes

A wise person once said, "Nothing more is needed to make a man unhappy than to believe he is" . . .
Through the years, we all have made mistakes. We all have had certain habits, moods, fears, and feelings of guilt which have kept us restless and unhappy at certain times. Yet it is possible to turn from the inadequate and unhappy things of life and begin living a new life. This can be done by deciding we are through with unhappiness . . . we are going to case unhappiness behind us.
TRUE . . . there is some unhappiness that can never be cast aside, but some of it can. . . TRUE . . . we need constantly to remind ourselves that we can be about as happy as we make up our minds to be . . . TRUE . . . circumstances play a part in our lives but isn't it also true that willpower and faith play an important part? . . . TRUE . . . it is never too late to change. This has become a truth so often repeated that it is a truism.
Couldn't it be said that happiness can be ours when we are supported by this hope and confidence? ...........................
