Pull Happiness Up by the Bootstraps

Let’s face it. We all feel down sometimes. For us, a sense of humor about not just life, but about ourselves, has always helped us reach down, grab our bootstraps and pull until we were standing tall once again No one and no thing can make you happy. They can add to your enjoyment but they can’t make you happy. Even medication for those with depression doesn’t make happiness. It can take the edge off a biological issue but it cannot create happiness. In our humble opinion, happiness is the ability to see ourselves as worthy of our own admiration – notice we didn’t say happiness is a perfect life or happiness is being thin and rich. Happiness is the ability to see ourselves as ready, willing and able to take in the beauty, joy and love that surrounds us all the time. But when we don’t believe we deserve it or we feel we need to be somehow “better” before happiness can be a part of our lives, we have blinders on and cannot see it. Let’s cast those blinders off, grab our bootstraps, pull ourselves upright and look to the left. Now look to the right. And, again, look up, look down, look backward. Then look within and repeat after us. “I am worthy of my own admiration. I am perfect, just as I am.” Happiness is not always accompanied by laughter. Happiness can be calm and quiet or anything in between. You are in charge of your own happiness – but you have to believe you are worthy. We believe you are.
