Yesterday I came across the Happiness Project, one woman's challenge to lead a happier life. She has 12 commandments for herself and I think my favorite is number 12:
There is only love.
"This commandment was inspired by a friend who took a job where she knew she’d have a difficult boss. From the beginning, she told herself, “There is only love.” She doesn’t allow herself to criticize her boss, even in her own mind, and won’t listen to anyone else’s criticism. She says it’s tough to do, but it has made her job far easier."
My mother taught me this growing up and I think lately I have forgotten what a powerful solution it is. Now I can't wait to try out The Happiness Toolbox!
