triggering mechanism. As such, it is dissimilar to fear, which is an emotional
response to a perceived threat or danger. Additionally, fear is related to the

situations perceived as uncontrollable or unavoidable. Another view, defines
anxiety as "a future-oriented mind-state, in which one is ready or
preparing to attempt to cope with upcoming negative events", suggesting there

distinguishes anxiety from fear.

When I was little, my Mother
always told me, happiness is the key to life.
When I went to school, the
teacher asks, “Write down what you want to be when you grew up”.
I wrote down “Happy”
The teacher told me I didn't understand the assignment. I thought the teacher didn't understand life.
Being Happy doesn't mean everything is
It means you decided to look beyond the
To be Happy is to be wise.
Happiness is not the destination, but rather
the way we choose to travel.
Happiness does not depend on who
we are, or what we have.
It depends solely on what you
Happiness is when what you think, what you
say, and what you do are in harmony
Happiness does not come from
without, it can only come from within.
It is not what you look at, but
what you choose to see.
It is not what you touch, but
what you choose to feel
It is not the sound, but what
you choose to hear.
It is not just what you say,
but how you choose to say it.
It is not the event, but how
you choose to perceive it.

The mind is a part of the body and the body a
part of the mind, there is no separation of the two. The mind is extremely
powerful, and all emotions are created within the realms of the mind. Happiness,
love, hope, sadness, fear, anxiety, anger, and shame can only exists within the
mind, while manifesting through the body. Therefore the mind can create hell of heaven
or create heaven of hell for the body.
The choice is ours.
