Spiritual Thought: Live After the Manner of Happiness

Last Sunday was our ward conference and a member of the stake presidency taught Relief Society. The topic of her lesson was "Live After the Manner of Happiness" and we talked about what that statement means to us.

The part that stuck out to me was "after the manner" ... as in... there's a pattern to follow. The way to find happiness is not unknowable. That's why it's called the Plan of Happiness, right? So if we are feeling unhappy, we have been given a guide of things that will bring more happiness into our lives. Maybe won't cure the unhappy, but will certainly help. The ones we talked about in class were the primary answers (read scriptures, say prayers, keep the commandments, attend your meetings) and others like keeping a journal, expressing gratitude for what you have, endure with faith and hope.

It was a good lesson for where I'm at right now. A reminder that Happiness is up to me.
Choose to see the mess or see the happy. Love this printable from LostBumbleBee.
Side note: I turned to my good friend Ashley and said "My Plan of Happiness has two steps: cookies and then a nap."
Thank goodness for Girl Scouts.
Be happy, friends.
