  1. Emeasoba George:

    Happiness is a matter of choice. Besides, sadness is also a matter of choice. So, which of the above habits or lifestyles have you been or are you indulging in?

But, the reverse is the case with sadness. Or rather sadness shortens one's life span. Thus, say NO to sadness and then say YES to happiness. For, happiness pays rather than sadness.
