If I could offer you a suit that was stylish and elegant, and would make you more beautiful than you already are, surely you would want it. Especially, if I added, that it protects you from harmful influences — similar to a bulletproof vest — and only costs very little.
Unfortunately, though, I cannot sell you this suit — for it’s a suit you already have. What suit is this? It’s your ability to be happy.
Be happy, and you wrap yourself in style and elegance. How can this be so? For happiness is beyond all style, beyond all elegance Even the wealthiest, most famous, must strive daily to be happy.
Be happy, and be beautiful. Surely, everyone agrees with this.
Be happy, and forget your worries. For happiness stops the calamities of life from hurting you, from crushing you. Moreover, happiness draws the Divine Presence, into you and protects you, even from physical dangers.
Now, to be happy may not mean that you can be careless. Still, you can be carefree. Be happy, and move through life with confidence and flair.
(Excerpted from “Be Happy and Succeed“.)
Have a growth-filled, uplifting day
