1. First, we must recognize that God is Happiness. It is God we seek when we seek Happiness.
We must acknowledge that God is Happiness itself. - St. Severinus
Whoever possesses God is happy. - St. Augustine.
2. Start and end each day by expressing gratitude.
Keep a notepad by your bed and write down 3 things you’re grateful for and thank God for your many blessings.
"What most attracts God's graces is gratitude, because if we thank Him for a gift, He is touched and hastens to give us ten more, and if we thank Him again with the same enthusiasm, what an incalculable multiplication of graces! I have experienced this: try it yourself and you will see! My gratitude for everything he gives me is limitless, and I prove it to Him in a thousand ways." - St. Therese of Lisieux
3. Do one loving action each day.
This could be paying someone a compliment, helping someone bring in the groceries, hold the door open for someone.
"In times when we are poor, dry, arid, with the feeling that God is far away, let's practice little works of love, especially in the area of fraternal charity, and we will find strength. Very often we recover our inner strength by forgetting ourselves in order to make life pleasant for others." - by Jacques Phillippe written in his book, The Way of True and Love - A Retreat Guided by St. Therese of Lisieux
Start with 10-20 minutes a day. Converse with God frequently through out the day. Lift your spirit to Him.
"Prayer is a wine that makes glad the heart of men." - St. Bernard
"You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him." - St. Teresa of Avila
"What an extraordinary thing it is, the efficiency of prayer! Like a queen, it has access at all times to the royal Presence, and can get whatever it asks for." - St. Therese of Lisieux
5. Let go and place your life in His hands. Surrender your day and all your actions to Him.
Consent to receive everything necessary from God, day by day, without worrying about yesterday or tomorrow.
"Day by day, we do what is asked of us, without anxiety, without fear, certain that God is faithful and will give us what we need from moment to moment; never failing prey to the illusion that one day we will be able to manage without God." - by Jacques Phillippe written in his book, The Way of True and Love - A Retreat Guided by St. Therese of Lisieux
"So I have always stayed little, having no other occupation than that of picking flowers, the flowers of love and sacrifice, and offering them to God for His pleasure." - St. Therese of Lisieux
