Happiness

We’ve had a great week here with lots of good school work, conversations on the letter board and the big event was James’ legend being published on Age of Autism. His SLP decided it would be nice to talk about happiness. And here is the discussion.  James basically came up with a guide to having happiness.  See below!

Happiness
“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
Abraham Lincoln
Tell me what you think this quote means.  I THINK HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE.  YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY OR YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE SAD.  USUALLY I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.
“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.” Helen Keller
Tell me what you think this quote means.  I WAS IN DARKNESS FOR YEARS.  I HAD TO LEARN HOW TO LEARN SO I COULD FIND HAPPINESS.  NOW I AM IN THE LIGHT AND NOW I CAN TALK ABOUT MY HAPPINESS.
Creative Writing:  What is your philosophy of happiness?  Create a “User’s Guide to Happiness!”  Be sure to state your definition of happiness and how one might achieve and sustain happiness!
JAMES’ ESSENTIAL STEPS FOR HAPPINESS
HAPPINESS IS A STATE OF MIND WHEN YOU ACCEPT THE LIFE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN.
STEP ONE IS TO ACCEPT WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY GOD.
STEP TWO IS TO STOP COMPARING YOUR LIFE TO OTHERS.
STEP THREE IS TO LOVE YOUR LIFE AND ALL THAT COMES WITH IT.
STEP FOUR IS TO STOP COMPLAINING.  COMPLAINING DOES NOT CHANGE ANYTHING.
STEP FIVE IS TO LOVE OTHERS, EVEN THOSE THAT ANNOY YOU.
STEP SIX IS TO SHARE YOUR JOY WITH THE WORLD.  YOUR HAPPINESS SPREADS THIS WAY.
FINAL STEP IS TO BE GRATEFUL.
YOUR HAPPINESS IS GUARANTEED IF YOU FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS.
