Happiness is…

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,

but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. -Nathaniel Hawthorne

Do you chase happiness?  Be honest, do you?  Or do you just do what you want in order to make your own happiness?  I loved this quote because quite honestly, I think the happiest people are those who do what they want, when they want, for the sheer happiness that it gives them.

It’s like work ~ when you love what you do ~ it’s easier to do because the time passes by so quickly because you are involved and enjoying the moment.  Can you say that about your job?  What about your life?  It’s your choice you know.  This is your life ~ your moment ~ your now ~ nobody else’s.

So let’s try today to just be in the moment.

Let happiness surround you.

Revel in the warmth of the sunshine or in the cool, healing raindrops.

Look up at the sky, check out the clouds, admire the stars and the moon.   

Take a deep breath.

You are here.

You are blessed.

You are loved.

Be grateful.

Shine On!
