A Bright and Happy Place

Let your intentions be good – embodied in good thoughts, cheerful words, and unselfish deeds – and the world will be to you a bright and happy place in which to work and play and serve. – Grenville Kleiser

I don’t believe it is as simple as the saying indicates, but I do believe that one’s world is much more likely to be a bright and happy place if our intentions, actions, thoughts, and deeds are good and cheerful, than if we seek to get ahead by hurting others, ignoring the pain of others, and allowing our darker thoughts to rule our lives.
