She had heard that this germ could be caught. She was not very sure of the details. But somewhere deep within she had the means to fight it. Every time it threatened to creep up and catch her unawares, she found resources to tackle it. It didn’t matter what the price was – she was not going to get infected.

However, as she grew older her defenses crumbled. Fighting this virus was costing her too much.

It wasn’t worth it. She succumbed. She caught the germ.   The germ of happiness.  Now there’s no turning back. She’s L-positive. Happy for life.



For years, I found ways not to be happy. Somewhere deep within my psyche there was a resistance to happiness. With the passing of time and painful experiences that forced me to grow, I began to stop resisting happiness. As Pearl Buck said: Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.

Are you resisting happiness?

May you be inspired – every day!
