Happiness is reaching out, helping lift someone’s spirits.
Happiness is feeling better today than yesterday.
Happiness is a transient state of mind. It comes and goes.
I am grateful for when happiness is here, and for when it returns.
Happiness is a funny and fickle thing.
Little things make me happy. And little things can close me off to it.
Happiness feels good. To me, it’s a young cousin to Joy.
Joy feels deeper and more solemn. Happiness is light and bubbly, like Ginger Ale.
This morning, I received a correspondence that giving of myself was well received. I gave from my heart, and it was received with gratitude. That made me very happy. Extremely happy, in fact.
A few more things that make me happy in this very moment are:
looking out my window to a rhododendron bush beginning to bloom,
seeing the lawn that has recently been cut and doesn’t need another mow quite yet,
looking out my kitchen window into a bush where a robin is building a nest,
and thinking about the few moments over the past 2 1/2 months when my Little Man is able to find his happiness again. They are few and far between right now, but are increasing.
What is making you happy in this moment? What was the last thing that made you happy? Do you feel that you can make a conscious choice to be happy when you’re not?
