    On the way to church this morning my car got a flat tire, and I had to go back home. But…I swear I didn’t wish it to happen! 🙂

    I’m actually a mild hypochondriac, and I’ve discovered over the years how to control it. I can easily think I’m suffering from some horrible condition, and as the days and weeks go by I actually feel worse. I’ve caught myself doing this, and I’ve just repeated the mantra “I’m healthy, I’m not sick.” And I do feel better by the next day. It’s amazing! My oldest daughter is a straight-out hypochondriac, so I’ve been helping her with this issue. It’s not the exact same type of happiness as you were describing, but there definitely is mind-body connection. Blessings!

      You’re right, we CAN make ourselves sick…even if there’s nothing wrong with us in the first place! I do the same trick and say “I am healthy” whenever I feel run down or like a cold might be starting. It really works. Being healthy definitely affects my happiness, so I try to focus on good health. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Sage! You are right, it is exhausting to live with a consistently pessimistic outlook. I’m always stressed, especially when it comes to work and dealing with people. I also agree that my stress is causing my “bad luck.” I’ve been doing a lot of thinking of changes I can make to bring about some positive changes and a happier, brighter future. I’ve pinpointed my main source of stress and unhappiness and came up with an idea of how to change it 🙂 I’m researching right now and I’m SO EXCITED!! I hope my family will support me in this decision if I decide to go through with it but I truly believe that it will lead to happiness for me.
    Great video Sage!

      Oooh, I’m intrigued! If it’s making you that excited, you must be on the right path. I really hope you go forward with it if you believe it will make you happy. Do it even if other people don’t understand! It’s your life, after all. 🙂

    When I was younger, I used to get so angry and look at the negatives in a situation. Now that I am older (and maybe wiser), I have learned to appreciate the little things. I am grateful for my health, family and that I have a roof over my head. It takes a lot of effort to be anrgry or pessimistic and it’s quite exhausting. Heather

      Absolutely. It’s takes much less energy to be content and positive about life.

    I used to be much more pessimistic but have really worked on that. It makes such a difference to be grateful for things! I find things every day to be happy & grateful for. I guess I don’t need a reminder about it anymore. It just became a habit. 🙂

    I’ve changed quite a few variables with my job over the last year and have really liked the results. It’s made me so much less fearful and much more willing to take risks. I love it!

      Awesome! I love making little tweaks to my life to make my days happier. And your job is so important, so that’s great that you like the results you’re getting.
