My home is a happy place. I enjoy coming home to see my family at the end of the day. When I walk through my front door, I feel a palpable sense of peace and love overtake me. There is no place in the world I would rather be than in my happy home.
The soundtrack of my family is filled with laughter and joy. In everything I do, I make it a point to have fun. I turn any situation into a happy situation by shifting my point of view.
Sometimes I laugh because things are funny; other times I just laugh at myself. I can laugh at my mistakes because I am defined by much more than my mistakes. I refuse to take life so seriously that my joy disappears. Instead, I look for reasons to smile and celebrate.
Happiness reigns in my home because I am slow to anger and quick to forgive. My children and my spouse are happy because they know I love them unconditionally. Joy rules the atmosphere of my home because love has cast out fear.
The members in my family are happy because they choose each other over themselves. My family is free from the destructive effects of selfishness. I model for my spouse and children how to speak to others with kindness and compassion.
Today, I choose to reject selfishness and embrace love. I shift my point of view so I can see every member in my family and every situation through eyes of compassion.
