Your Happy Life: The Buck Stops Here
Hi <>, and the warmest of welcomes to "Happy Life The JJ Way".
February was a very eventful month in my Happy Life! I met some interesting new people, had relatives pop in from interstate to celebrate my son's 18th birthday, experienced a sudden loss in our family, attended a wedding, and the very touching celebration of the life of a beautiful young man who returned home to spirit.
All these events caused me to reflect upon the urgency of living happily. If your life is not as happy as you'd like, act now.

Don't wait for someone else to make you happy - that job description is yours alone. You're asking for trouble if you think that 'someone special' is going to materialize and make you happy. I can't stress enough - when it comes to your Happy Life THE BUCK STOPS WITH YOU!
If you've so far been unsuccessful in making yourself happy,
here's that mentoring link again
THE BUCK STOPS HERE!
Are you taking responsibility for your own happiness?
There is only one person who can make you happy and that is YOU! The buck stops at your mirror. Multitudes of people go through life in 'victim' mode, blaming their parents or partners for
Whilst your parents may not have been Carol and Mike Brady (from The Brady Bunch, 70's American TV show for you youngsters!) MOST parents do the best job they can with the information available to them at the time. Seriously, can you really imagine a happy couple with a newborn baby deciding NOT to do the best job they can as parents? Bear in mind, some of that information came from THEIR parents. How else would we learn to parent if not from our own parents? You can bet your sweet bippy your parents did a better job with you than
theirs did with them.
We also learn how NOT to parent from our parents, so, in theory,
each generation receives better and better parenting. However, some still get it very wrong! But I'm sure this is not intentional! So, if you are the victim of bad parenting, follow my two-step programme to a Happy Life:
1. Re-read the above. Perceive your parents not as big, mean authority figures trying to make your life a misery, but as loving parents who want the best for their child. They
took the information available to them and improved upon it to the best of their ability.
2. Get over it. Whichever mistakes were made are in the past. You can choose to be a victim for the rest of your life, OR take the necessary steps (therapy or just DECIDING)to get over it. Your life. Your choice.
Just don't come whingeing to me if you decide to NOT get over it.
Why Am I The Happiest Person I Know?
When I was given an opportunity to share my message with the world, through my first publication
The Path To Success
I thought it may be my only opportunity, ever. So I thought long and hard about the number one reason I am The Happiest Person I Know. If I could only share one message with the world, which would be the most important?
The answer is my contribution to
The Path To Success
and it is my fervent wish that you read it, take my message on board, and become The Happiest Person You Know!
