Hello, Folks, I consider this a Very Important Post!
There are But Two Steps to Happiness:
1.DECIDE to be Happy! This Deciding to be Happy is a Most Important thing.
This means, saying something like this to Oneself: ‘Whatever life throws at me, I shall Remain Happy!‘ Like, Why should We lose Our Happiness just because Somebody’s Bile is Acting Up? 🙂

Am not exactly sure Why the person had put Mr. Grumpy along with those Cows. Thought of Cropping it, but then… Liked the Idea of the Cow saying ‘Moo to You too,’ though am not sure this is what the artist had in mind!
Say that, or something like that, and Get Along with Your Life! Though I would Seriously Suggest that You say the Moo to him/her by Your Lonesome, though this is Not Necessary.
2.Happiness comes from Knowing that one has Done the Right thing, and Done it Properly and Well.
The ‘Other’s’ acknowledgement is Absolutely unnecessary for this. MOST people are Apathetic. If Our happiness were to depend on their ‘smiling back,’ We would get nowhere. Because Most people are lost in their own worlds, do not even notice a smile, and thus cannot acknowledge it.
So. We Do the Right thing. Whether or not it is Acknowledged or Appreciated depends on the Strength or the Weakness of the Other! 🙂

There can be a Problem in this. Having done the Right things, We could still be Anxious or Unhappy.
If We were to Keep Dwelling on our good deeds, that might make Us Bloat up like a Frog, which We do not want!
But at the End of the Day, If We would just ‘Recall’ that We Have Decided to be Happy, and that We Have done Well according to Our Values., and make this a Habit… We will Remain Happy.
