The A B C For Happiness
A-Accept: Accept others for who they are and for the choices they’ve made even if we have difficulty understanding their beliefs, motives, or actions.

D-Decide: Decide that we will be successful and happy come what may, and good things will find us. The roadblocks are only minor obstacles along the way.
E-Explore: Explore and experiment. The world has much to offer, and we have much to give. And every time we try something new, we learn more about ourselves.
F-Forgive: Forgive and forget. Grudges only weigh you down and inspire unhappiness and grief. Soar above it, and remember that everyone makes mistakes.
G-Grow: Leave the childhood monsters behind. They can no longer hurt us or stand in our way.
H-Hope: Hope for the best and never forget that anything is possible as long as we remain dedicated to the task.
I-Ignore: Ignore the negative voice inside our head. Focus instead on our goals and remember our accomplishments. Our past success is only a small inkling of what the future holds.
J-Journey: Journey to new worlds, new possibilities, by remaining open-minded. Try to learn something new every day, and we will grow.
K-Know: Know that no matter how bad things seem, they’ll always get better. The warmth of spring always follows the harshest winter.
L-Love: Let love fill our heart instead of hate. When hate is in our heart, there’s room for nothing else, but when love is in our heart, there’s room for endless happiness.
M-Manage: Manage our time and our expenses wisely, and we will suffer less stress and worry. Then we will be able to focus on the important things in life.
N-Notice: Never ignore the poor, infirm, helpless, weak, or suffering. Offer our assistance when possible, and always our kindness and understanding.
O-Open: Open our eyes and take in all the beauty around us. Even during the worst of times, there’s still much to be thankful for.
P-Play: Never forget to have fun along the way. Success means nothing without happiness.

V-Value: Value the friends and family members who’ve supported and encouraged us, and be there for them as well.

X-X-Ray: Look deep inside the hearts of those around us and we will see the goodness and beauty within.
Y-Yield: Yield to commitment. If we stay on track and remain dedicated, we will find success at the end of the road.
