This week’s prompt is:  Getting to Our Happy Place

“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

– Abraham Lincoln

“Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.”

– Mark Twain

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

– Elizabeth Gilbert

Today’s Prompt:

Do you have a place to go when you need to be happy? Does it turn out that you are always happy in certain settings? Is happiness a state of mind that you can choose to turn on when you want to? How do you motivate yourself to be happy when you want to get out of a funk? Is happiness, for you, determined by external or internal factors? Share with us how you get to your happy place.

The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment.
