1. Never make any promises.
2. Build only shallow friendships.
3. Smile and nod continually.
4. Always say “yes”.
5. Speak sparingly.
These things guarantee you’ll keep others happy, but cannot promise your own personal contentment.
My choice today:
Realize the feelings of others can’t decide my happiness.
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13
