Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”     Acts 5:38-39

Ecclesiastes 3:12 I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live.

Once upon a time, a real group called the Secret Society of Happy People decided to dedicate a day to the pursuit of happiness. Members of the society wanted to let happy feelings linger inside them every day. In 2000, the Secret Society of Happy People expanded the celebration to Happiness Happens Month in August.

Happiness is a choice. Remembering happiness does not mean you are problem free. That kind of life doesn’t exist. As the Stoics of Ancient Greece observed, happiness is all about the quality of your thoughts. Happiness is not a destination, but rather a life-long pursuit. Joy can be anywhere at any time. Don’t limit yourself to searching for pleasure. Enjoy everything and anything that makes you happy. 

Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.
― Abraham Lincoln

If you struggle with finding happiness, you can learn to be happy. There is plenty of helpful advice available to guide you in the right direction. 

Click here for a list of Scripture relating to happiness. 

Most of the best “how to be happy” books and videos boil down to variations of the Ancient Greek philosophy of stoicism (not to be confused with the modern use of the word). The essence of stoicism is this: no matter what is wrong with the world in general, and your life in particular, you can choose to be happy if you learn how.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any set of circumstances, to choose one’s way.
-Viktor Frankl

Notice more happy moments and share them with others. 

The Secret Society of Happy People started celebrating happiness with “Admit You’re Happy Day,” on August 8, 1999.
