“Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?”

In the past, being right was my priority! That was when I was married and that was 30 years ago.

Sometimes I feel it is important to stand up for what I believe in. I would be unhappy if I devalued who I am and what I believe in and yet, I don't have to argue to the extent that I invade someone else's space, disrespect someone else as a person, or judge somone by what they believe and think my way is the only way.

It is again about agreeing to disagree. That makes me happy.

Happiness is a choice. A few years ago someone said to me, "You are not happy." I had to look at it and saw it was from their perspective. It might not have been always Hip, Hip, Hurrah! Yet just being able to be in the moment and enjoy it for what it is, makes me happy in today.

An attitude of gratitude goes along way to my happiness in today. As they say, compromise is a good thing. We not only need to learn to give, we need to learn to receive.

Don't want my happiness at the expense of others. It depends on what I need to do to maintain my happiness. I don't want to be abused and disrespected as a person, it is about setting boundaries, often lately, it has been about negotiating them.
