The easiest way to be happy – stop complaining! Remember, you are either looking at the black dot and missing the whole whiteboard or you are so engaged with your whole life that whatever isn’t right or working well moves into perspective. Overly focusing on what’s not working, complaining, or reacting to what we don’t like, simply creates more of the same. Looking for what is working, shifts our perspective completely.  The ancients may have truly been on to something when they wrote: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
