    Celebrate Life: A Path to Happiness!

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  We have just celebrated the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas and now we are celebrating the 2nd day of Kwanzaa, Kujichagulia.   We are 5 days from New Year’s Eve, which is also Kokomon’s birthday and 6 days from New Year’s Day. This is truly a time of celebrations.  Are we happy?  Maybe we can be happy if we observe the values that the Kwanzaa Celebrations reminds us of.  There are seven core values for the seven days of Kwanzaa.  Today as we celebrate let us remember "Kujichagulia”, it asks us to define the world in our own image and interest placing indigenous people and culture at the center of our worldview and social reality. There are seven values of Kwanzaa, beginning with yesterday, Umoja which means unity; Kujichagulia, self-determination; Ujimaa, working together; Ujamaa, supporting each other; Nia, purpose; Kuumba, creativity; and Imani, faith.  We can extend this holiday season to every day of the year with Kwanzaa.  We can celebrate through faith by waking up, walking, eating, knowing that the little things is life is what matters most.  It is all in the way we see life.  Celebrate, be happy!  Thank you for joining us in this very important conversation on celebration as a path to happiness.  Call (347) 539-5818 and share your wisdom on this topic.

    Celebrate and Be Happy! A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Celebrate and Be Happy!  A path to happiness is a choice to be happy.  This is the season of celebrations.  Why do we need to create a season to celebrate when life is a celebration?  When we refer to a celebration we think of a party, social gathering, people coming together, music, food and decoration.  Why do we make it a special gathering?  Is life a special gathering?  We are continuing the theme of celebration, because we are in the season that we celebrate life, the life of Christ, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the winter solstice.  Why not celebrate every day and every hour?  Oprah Winfrey said, The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.  So you see life is to be celebrated, because it increases as you celebrate.  And Oscar Wilde says, Life is too important to be taken seriously. So let us celebrate, be happy and have fun.  Join the conversation, tune in to A Happiness Index on blog talk radio and call (347) 539-5818.

    An Attitude of Gratitude: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  We are in the Holiday Season.  Tonight is the first evening of Hanukkah.  As we begin to light the candles to bring light into the darkness of the season, let us at the same time develop an attitude of being grateful for everything and everyone in our life.  Even the things and the people that challenge us, let us remember that they are there to uplift and make us stronger.  Brian Tracy said, Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.  Last week we reminded you that gratitude is a state or quality of being thankful.  Remember that gratitude is also setting the intention of thankfulness and that means that we have tapped into our innate attitude of gratitude and happiness.  An attitude of gratitude will support us in being happy.  Thank you for joining us in this very important conversation on gratitude.  Call (347) 539-5818 and share your wisdom on this topic.

    More on Gratitude: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  The Holiday in the United States for Thanksgiving is behind us, but gratitude is forever.    We will continue to remind our listeners that everyday is a day of gratitude.  Gratitude is a state or quality of being thankful, an expression of appreciation and kindness.  We believe that gratitude is happiness.  However, we must remember to be grateful, the moment that we forget, gratitude ends. Let us recall and remember to be grateful for everything and for everyone.  Everyone and everything can be a curse or a blessing according to our belief.  That is the power of our thoughts.  Let us be grateful for the moment. According to Eckhart Tolle, It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.  Gratitude is happiness!  Join in this conversation by calling (347) 539-5818 and share your view on this very important topic.
