WHEN THE WIFE WAS ASKED A QUESTION…
Years ago at a marriage conference, a wife was asked if her husband made her happy! Of course her husband stood beside her, beaming with smiles. He was full of confidence, believing he knew what her answer would be!
He thought his wife would say ‘YES,” because they had a happy marriage. On the contrary, she responded with a shocking “NO.”
Hear her: “My husband has never made me happy and does not make me happy! I am happy! Whether I am happy or not is not dependent on him but on me. I am the only person on whom my happiness depends. I choose to be happy in every situation and every moment of my life for if my happiness depended on another person, thing or circumstance on the face of the earth, I would be in serious trouble. Everything that exists in this life constantly changes: the human being, the riches, my body, the climate, my boss, the pleasures, the friends, and my physical and mental health. I could quote an endless list.
WHY YOU CAN’T FIND LOVE – HOW TO FIND LOVE
Are you wondering why you can’t find love? Or are you looking for love with no luck? If you really want to find love and lead a happy and romantic life, you need to give these pointers a thought.

3 THINGS YOU MUST GIVE UP TO MOVE FORWARD TODAY
Let me share a new 90-second story and some important life lessons with you…
Recently, Marc and I received a thank you email from a Think Better, Live Better 2018 attendee named Kevin (we’re writing about him today with his consent). He said our conference helped him and his wife Laura maintain a positive, intentional mindset as they struggled and grew through one of the most difficult periods of their lives. Certain sections of his email nearly moved me to tears:
“As I mentioned to you at this year’s Think Better, Live Better conference, after injuring my back, losing my job because of it, being evicted from our apartment, moving in with Laura’s parents, nursing my five-year-old through a nearly fatal bout of strep throat, I was stuck in a tragic mental and emotional rut for far too long. And I was sitting on the front porch feeling sorry for myself, yet again, when my old college buddy called me crying and said, ‘Mel-Mel-Mellisa, my baby girl, just died in a car wreck.’ And suddenly I felt like the lucky one.”
