Happiness lesson????....

The Princess over at Fairy tales wants me to do a Happiness lesson.
Hummmmmm.....
Not sure how to go about that actually.
Happiness comes from deep within I think. Sometimes it's hard to find it. Sometimes it takes every ounce of strength we can find to eek out a wee little bit of it.
But......it's essential to a good life to do so I believe.
I'm generally an optomist, so I usually go the route of this...

My face is showing wrinkles...**at least it's not burned or deformed from some horrific disease.**
My head hurts..**at least I know it'll pass and it's not a tumor that's inoperable.**
My back is realllly hurting...** at least I'm not in a wheelchair and I can still function on my own two feet. **

It could always be worse.....possibly.

Find the rainbow....find some shiney stuff in your pockets or that lovely yellow purse....or look at that perfect sunset...or smell your Lovee's neck...or look at the stars and wonder at the heavens..

It's all around us. We just have to open our eyes and hearts to the possibilities of 'awe' and 'wonderment'.

Its out there and it's free for the taking.
I'm gonna go grab me a handful and wash my face with it....then blow the rest to the winds. Maybe it'll land on some unsuspecting person who needs it and just can't seem to find it.

Yea.....I'm ok....
Brain is properly squished; I can hear Lovee in the garage working on his latest project: Mom's feeling much better; Dad is calm now;
uh-O....the dryer squawked...........
later ...]

I agree that happiness is usually a choice. You can look at the positives or the negatives. I struggle not to look at the negatives all the time.

Blame the Dalai Lama. Need a little reminder of happiness? Read the Art of Happiness. I keep it by my bedside for that little pick-me-up when I need it. Just a reminder that while I may not be able to choose what the weather is like, I CAN choose to either complain about the gloomy day or go outside and dance in the rain!!

Have a wonderful Monday!! Do something that makes YOU happy!!
