This I Believe

I believe there is no point in not being happy and having fun. Happy

people lead the best lives since they are optimists. One of my favorite sayings

is happy people are healthy. It seems to me that happiness solves everything.

Happiness is just like chocolate in that way.

Most people have wondered what the point of life is. I try to ask myself

that question when I am in different moods. When I ask myself that question when I am sad, I think life is pointless. When I ask myself the point of life when I

am happy, I realize the point is to be happy and have fun. No matter what is

thrown at you, it will seem like nothing if you treat it as a fun little

adventure that you would like to take.

Our world is Utopia if you have fun. Almost everything in the world

seems fun if you try to have fun. Studying for a test can be fun if you make up a dance and song to memorize key ideas or terms. I believe our point on earth is to have a good time. I believe there is no point in not being happy and having fun.
