    What does love have to do with happiness? Featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index”.  Our conversation continues to focus on love; today we will explore “What does love have to do with happiness?  We are only a few days away from Valentine’s Day and many will be disappointed with their love ones, because they may believe that they did not get what they wanted from their love one on Valentine’s Day.  It has been said that the day after Valentine’s Day, more candy is found in the garbage than the day after Halloween.  Why do you think that would happen? A partner will give candy to a love one to communicate his or her deep and abiding love. That love one is not able to receive that message, because of their desire for something that he or she may feel is more valuable than candy.  “What does love have to do with it?”  Why aren’t we happy?  Is love the source of our happiness?  Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index” with Kokomon Clottey.  Tune in and turn on to happiness!

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”   We are encouraging you to take the high road as you are dealing with difficult issues.  When you are in pain or deeply troubled, find someone to serve and that will lift you up and will give you the strength and the sweetness to bring change for yourself and for others.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join me in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.
