Food For Thought: CAS Printable

So, I've discovered a fabulous new challenge blog called CASology, and as I'm a card maker first and foremost, I've already created some cards for this week's challenge.  But as I was visiting some of the other players' blogs, one of them had an amazing quote in her post.  Her name is Carole and you can find her blog HERE and her darling card HERE.

The quote that inspired me was very simple.  It goes like this, "If you want to be happy, be."  Leo Tolstoy said that.  It is a great reminder that happiness is a choice!  If you're unhappy, do your best to make yourself happy.  Be kinder to those around your, be grateful for what you have, leave the relationship that is not good for you behind even if it's hard, forgive your enemies, love your family, serve God, declutter your life!

Here's the printable that I've made~

I hope you like it!  If you'd like it for your very own to display wherever you'd wish, please click on it, save it, and print it!  For more guidelines and disclaimers, please see the tab up top.  This printable measures 4" x 6". :)  If you click on the picture, you'll be able to see the size a bit better.  Lots of white space going on here!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired by what you find here and that you resolve to be little better each day!  Happy printing! ;)

I like this saying. I believe that happiness is a choice. I simply choose to be happy! :)

I like the quote from Tolstoy. My daughter wrote a little book in 2nd grade entitled "Choosing Your Feelings" which was about choosing to be happy. I thought it was so good that I included it in a book that I wrote - "Joy in the Mourning". I've needed to remind myself of that this week!

Great quote - I love that people are starting to understand that being happy is sometimes a choice, not just a reaction to circumstance! I also love your purple flowers. Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!
