Happiness depends on your attitude.

Cliche, I know, but thank you sign at Idaho Falls Chiropractic Clinic P.A. for reminding me how to be happy this morning.

I needed that, because your words brought this to mind:
Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God. [...]

[...] [A]s God has designed our happiness—and the happiness of all His creatures, he never has—He never will institute an ordinance or give a commandment to His people that is not calculated in its nature to promote that happiness which He has designed, and which will not end in the greatest amount of good and glory to those who become the recipients of his law and ordinances. (TPJS: 255-56; online source.)
And I really needed that, too.
