The new proverb posted to the Mishlei section on Tuesday, Feb 14 deals with the subject of having a good attitude. A person may think that if he only had money and power he would surely be happy and healthy, and so he focuses his energies on gaining all the things that he doesn’t have. But he fails to realize that the steps he is taking to gain “the good life” are driving him to misery and unhappiness. He fails to appreciate that happiness is not measured by his possessions but by his attitude towards his own possessions and those of others.
