The question is why not happiness? 🙂
Happiness is our birthright and is really an underlying desire of most people.
For example when we desire things for other people like our children, we are really wanting them to just be happy……like wanting them to graduate from a good school, or to land a great job, underneath it all, what we really, really want is for them to be happy.
We want this for ourselves too. When we can show our children that we are happy, we teach them that happiness is natural. Many people today feel that happiness is some far away and unreachable place, and that is unfortunate.
“There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”Thich Nhat Hanh
I highly recommend putting happiness on your daily check list. What are some things that you can do to increase your happiness so that you are happier and you infuse the natural art of happiness into those around your too?
. laugh at yourself
. laugh at life
. watch funny movies
. have a conversation with an upbeat friend who likes to joke and laugh
. make happiness a goal
. seek happiness (what you seek seeks you)
. show kindness toward others.. this always infuses happiness within us
. spend time with young children
. do art
. go skinny dipping
. walk in nature
. gaze at the stars
The list is endless. Do whatever helps to make you happy and happier. Do the things that bring you JOY!
I wish you nothing but happiness…. til next time.
