Monday Morning Memo – How to Be Happy

"One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy; One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself." - Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project
I've heard some variation of this statement many times in my life. I'm sure you have, too. It's just . . . I don't know if I agree with it. It sounds a little too convenient. I mean, I can see a scenario where a person spends ALL of his/her time working on making him/herself happy based on the rationalization that this is what will make other people happy. #personalfail That said, I am working hard to try and see the positive aspect of situations in hopes of it allowing me to have a better - and not bitter - attitude towards others. So, for instance, instead of complaining that it's raining all this week, I will instead thank God that I have a car to drive to work so I don't have to get wet while I commute. This, in turn, helps me not to be a crabapple when I face my co-workers in the office. What to do you think, dear readers? Do you agree with Gretchen's idea? Or is it just a hypocritical excuse to indulge oneself in the name of helping others?
