Good Monday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: true happiness is found when sacrifices are made. There’s never been a time when all of society focused so much energy on being happy. Everyone wants to be happy. They want to achieve happiness by living the lifestyle they’re living even if it’s way beyond them. They want to make a lot of money, but not have to sacrifice years in school. They want a wonderful marriage without working at it or making sacrifices. The problem with all of this is you can’t be happy if you don’t make sacrifices. When you give up something you like to receive something of deeper value you remind yourself of what’s important in life, and that’s what deepens life’s meaning for you and makes you happy. “The good life” happens when family members are willing to sacrifice what they may want personally for the well-being of their family.
