But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
From the ancients to modern day sages, the message is consistent: feeling happy is a choice. Think happy thoughts and you will feel happier. Sounds silly to the modern mind, but for thousands of years it's a method of mood control that has worked for everyone from kings to peasants, from the wealthy to the poor.
