    Hope: A Path to Happiness featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Today our focus will be on Hope: Path to Happiness. For many Non Christians, Easter means little more than fluffy bunnies and chocolate eggs. I must admit that I once watched children hunting for Easter eggs and saw the joy the bounty brought. However, the Story of Easter is a high point on the Christian calendar of the journey of Jesus the Christ, from death to resurrection.  This coming Sunday, April 5th is Easter.  It is a time of forgiveness, a time for us to look upon each other with different eyes, a time to give the gift of lilies. Let us look with fresh eyes on each other and all things this coming Easter; let us let forgiveness be the way we walk with each.  This is a time of renewal and a time to start anew and let our past go.  Join the conversation as we explore the power of hope and the role hope plays every day.  Tune in to a Happiness Index and join us by dialing (347) 539-5818 and share your wisdom on this 2000-year-old story.

    Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  Today we will continue to explore with you the concept of Hope & Service as a path to happiness.  Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Service is a valuable action, deed, or effort performed to satisfy a need or to fulfill a demand.  When we have hope and we are in service.  We are in a positive state of mine that the action or deed that we are performing for another will have a positive outcome. We believe that what we are doing will make a difference and as a result we are happy. Joseph Addison said, Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.  Join the conversation and share your wisdom on Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness by calling (347) 539-5818.
