Step Up To The Plate

“Most folks are as happy as they make their minds to be… The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.” – Abraham Lincoln

It’s sort of surprising that good old Abe wasn’t in a 12 step program, right? He understood that living one day at a time gives us the best hope for a great future. He also understood that our happiness is dependent upon our state of mind, which we actually have the power to change. We can invite happiness in at any time – even in those moments where things appear the bleakest. I have been so fortunate to be a part of a fellowship that has encouraged me to discover the art of being happy. And because I’m willing to practice each an every day, when I step up to the plate and swing the bat, I end up getting in some pretty good hits, which makes me smile, knowing that ILML!
