Recipe



The happiness recipe has real ingredients.
Positive feelings endure without expedients.
Focus on the beautiful and all things good and true.
Positive feelings endure from this elixir brew.
Maintain financial soundness: relatively debt free.
Positive feelings endure with this security.
"Do unto everybody as desired to have done."
Positive feelings endure with this rule number one.
Have a grateful attitude for the sufficiency.
Positive feelings endure through this adequacy.
Learn to forgive completely and lift the spirits high.
Positive feelings endure when making this ally.
Present authenticity in daily engagements.
Positive feelings endure honoring commitments.
Love someone without reserve and know intimacy
Positive feelings endure having integrity.
Neither be shrewd nor cunning when simply having fun.
Positive feelings endure if it is genuine.
