May Happiness Be Yours Today

"May happiness be yours today"

Repeat this phrase inwardly when you hand a person their groceries over the counter. When you let them go through the door first. When you're forced to sit and listen to someone else's prattle. When you wave to a friend on the street. When you give a street person a dollar. When riding a bus, you may be able to say it inside yourself to everyone on the bus.

What happens?

There are no guarantees. But what goes around often comes around.

May happiness be yours today.

Sometimes people look like they would not welcome happiness. For these people, one can say, inwardly,

"May happiness surprise you today!"

"May happiness sneak into your life today!"

"May the possibility of happiness enter upon your solemn consideration."

"May the remembrance of happiness guide and guard you."

The other day I was on a bus and NO ONE looked like they even wanted to be happy. So, instead of draining my energies by internally saying "May happiness be yours today!", I found I could say "Happiness MAY be yours today!" and leave it up to them as to whether they would let it into their life.
