Happiness and inner peace come from:
Solving problems creatively.
Solving problems in cooperation with other people.
Appreciating with all our senses the beauty of the world around us.
Doing our chosen work skillfully and faithfully.
Listening to God's spirit which affirms that our life matters and that we are loved by God.
Asking forgiveness of and making amends to those whom we have hurt if doing so will not hurt them more.
Accepting that there are some situations we cannot change--at least for now.
Living within our time and energy means.
Spending time with friends whom we appreciate and who appreciate us.
Living within our monetary means.
Taking care of ourselves physically through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Touching lovingly and being touched lovingly by someone who shares in our life and accepts us as we are.
