Be Happy

Just wanted to write a little note and remind you of that fact. You can never be too happy; it's just not possible. If you want to be happy, be.

Did you know that it takes seven positive statements to counteract one negative one? We do this really neat thing in our church/youth group, and I think it should spread to other venues as well. Anytime a person says something negative about another person, they must come up with seven good things about that person and tell them. Also, if someone says something negative about themselves, they must come up with seven positive things about themselves and say them out loud.

I challenge you to try it with the people around you, or even just by yourself, and see what a difference positive affirmations can make in your life.

Speaking of happy... Here's a recipe for some good eats. Good eats always make me happy, and this is just too good not to share with you guys. Even my friends eating Paleo can enjoy this dish. It's fresh, summery, and perfect for throwing in lunches or taking on picnics.
