Happiness Begins With You
幸福由心开始

Happiness is a state of mind

There have been countless valuable lessons that I have learned in life, so this book contains what to me, are the most crucial lessons which have impacted my life for the better .  These lessons have molded me into the person I am today, and will continue to shape my future in the many years to come .

I find myself wandering into deep thought ever so often,but amongst this plethora of seemingly pointless thoughts,the one truly meaningful question repeatedly emerges. I think about this as i drift into peaceful slumber, and as bright light of the morning shine peek through my eyelids. This question , so broad yet so significant, appears once more ” what is the most important thing in my life ? “

More about Sharel……

When I was a little girl, my mother called me an “iron girl” because I was a tough little girl. I was cheeky, active  and independent. I always ran around playing with my neighbors’ friends, and even when the weather was hot I would hardly fall sick.

Today, l have grown up to be an “iron woman” who is determined, tough and weather proof against all odds…..

I dress up in the image of  “Mulan” because I was once advised by a well know Taiwan Feng Shui master that my “Ba Zi” has a strong characteristic of  “Hua Mulan personality” although I look soft and gentle from outside.

START EACH DAY WITH A GRATEFUL HEART


Happiness is a “choice” of life. It's how we process our thoughts, how we interpret situations and the way we behave and translate our thoughts into actions and responses. They turn out to be harmonious or negative energy that controls and manipulates our inner and outer world. Physical health is as important as mental health, but the ultimate goal is to have a happy and healthy body, mind and soul.
