An Awesome Message to be Happy

I just received this in an e-mail from a friend and I had to share the message. It is a message of Happiness.

This is AWESOME … something we should all remember. 

    A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed
each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly,
even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.  

    His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.
After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he
smiled sweetly when told his room was ready. 

    As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his
window.  

    I love it,’ he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having
just been presented with a new puppy.  

    Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; just wait..’ 
    ‘That doesn’t have anything to do with it,’ he replied. 

    Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. 

     Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is  arranged
.. it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it.  

    ‘It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice;  

    I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the
parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful  for
the ones that do.  

    Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new
day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away.. Just for this time in my
life.. 
    Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you’ve put in.  

    So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account
of memories! 

    Thank you for your part in filling my Memory Bank. 
    I am still depositing. 
    Remember the five simple rules to be happy: 

     1. Free your heart from hatred. 
    2. Free your mind from worries. 
    3. Live simply. 
    4. Give more. 
    5. Expect less. 

 Lets pass this message onto others so they can be happy to. We can be audacious by being happy..

How Can I Help you to be Audacious?
