Happiness is…

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

I awoke this morning with the thought of Happiness is… (you fill in the blank) and a la Charles Schultz and the Peanuts gang, I could only think ~

Happiness is…a warm puppy.

Then when I was perusing the cards in SendOutCards, I found this one and VOILA ~ I knew what my blog would be based on today.

Happiness is….what would you fill in the blank with today?

What makes you happy?

How can YOU make YOU happy today?

We yearn to be happy in our lives, but sometimes I think we get complacent and just stay in the same happy zone and don’t stretch our brains and our actions to encompass more to make us even happier.  Like the heart muscle that grows stronger with exercise and increases the amount of love in our lives, our happiness quotient has the same ability to grow and strengthen with action…and purpose.

Take time today to think about how happy you are and dare to dream about even more happiness in your life.  What could you do to increase your happiness?

Happiness is something you can control ~ it’s YOURS ~ so use it!

  1. Happiness is finding your inner joy and peace and sharing it with the world. Happiness is finding joy in the small moments of life when we truly connect to other people. Happiness is taking time to notice all the wonder and beauty in the world that surrounds us. Happiness is living each day to the fullest, by expanding our knowledge, by embracing good and by taking time to be grateful for all the wonderful people in our lives.
