Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy---Anne Frank
For instance, lovable puppies and all the joy they bring. Happy 3rd Birthday to my little Millefiori!
Recognize and express happiness
Listen to others talk about their happiness
Don’t rain on other people’s parades
We all may feel a little challenged by happiness, but this would be a great time to make a conscious effort to be happy. I used to feel that happiness was something that hinged on outside forces and it was a goal, not really a state of living. For the past couple of days, I’ve been thinking about happiness and believe that for me, happiness is that wonderful time when I am truly content with the here and now. I put aside the chatter that says, “I’ll be happier when I have more money (time, love, things, health, drama, less weight, etc.) When I did this, I realized I am a pretty happy person.
So my goal is that each day when I meditate, I will focus on something that makes me very happy and content in my life. What makes me happy today: Knowing that I am already very happy.
