Happiness is Contagious?

Want to know the secret to happiness?  Apparently happiness is contagious.  Experts in a newly released study indicate that all we need to do is surround ourselves with happy people and we’ll be happy.
“People with the most social connections — friends, spouses, neighbors,relatives — were also the happiest, the data showed. “Each additional happy person makes you happier,” Christakis said.”
So, ditch your depressed friends and co-workers, and gather some positive people.  Hey…maybe that’s why I like Twitter so much!

Amen! Since this is the 3rd time this week, I’ve received this information, I suppose that’s a good sign of who my friends are. It’s right in line with these great quotes:
• “You are, or will become, the average of the five people you associate with the most.” – Brian Carruthers
• “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.” – Oprah Winfrey
• “…you cannot soar with the eagles as long as you’re pecking around with the chickens.” – Joel Osteen
