The ABC of genuine happiness – H


The ABC of genuine Happiness



H – Hug often. Help others


Watch your thoughts – they become words.

Watch your words – they become actions.

Watch your actions – they become habits.

Watch your habits – they become character.

Watch your character – it becomes your destiny.



“If you want happiness for an hour ? take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day ? go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year ? inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime ? help someone else.”
-Chinese Proverb


… to be continued …

Wishing you a happy and helpful day!

    • Mine too actually as I loooove hugs. BTW no technology does not beat us, still I had to resend the request as still can’t see you. Can you try and send me a short message? I did but it is not going somehow. We will conquer it Skye!

  3. Hear’s a hug for you for being a helpful peson. (I am so glad you are doing this. I kept this this ABC and planned on doing the same thing) Thank you, Ute for doing this. Happy second day of advent.

      • You are welcome Ute. Always a pleasure. Congratulations on all the awards that you have received, you are an inspiration. I have got all of my nominations up-to-date. I have to take a break from nominating, if I get any more awards, until February next year, as my illustrator needs me to finish my book for January 20th.

  4. I love ‘H’ and the hug idea. I had a former boss that chose ‘HUG THERAPY’ as his method. He would give us huge hugs! He was like a gentle ‘teddy bear’. Thanks for reminding me of Mr. Little!

Love to hear from you......
