For me, a beautiful flower can bring happiness. My daughter and husband bring happiness. Having dinner with my parents, other family, or friends brings happiness. Laughter brings happiness. Doing things I love or making a difference in someone's life brings happiness. Giving brings happiness but so does receiving a surprise gift.
There are a million little things that can bring me happiness if I am open. After all, it is my perspective and decision which allows me to feel happy. Something great may happen but if I am in a bad mood, I may miss the opportunity to let happiness happen. Yet the more I do in my self-care and getting my mindset in a positive place, the more things inspire me to be happy.
Happiness is trying to happen to us each day in a million different ways. Some things are tiny and others big. If we only accept the grand gestures of happiness we miss out on a lot of chances to be happy. And the more we choose happiness, the more happy things we will notice.
I'm grateful for National Happiness Happens Day! I'm grateful for all the positive people in my life. I'm grateful to renew my commitment to be aware of my language and quit complaining. I'm grateful to accept happiness often. I'm grateful to see the connection between my self care and accepting happiness. I'm grateful to take time to take care of myself. I'm grateful to have amazing family and friends whose company I truly enjoy. I'm grateful for Surprise Lillies and Mother Nature's other gifts.
How is your self-care? When do you best allow happiness to happen? What is going on around you today that you can choose to be happy about?
May today remind us the more we choose to see positively the more positive things will show up. May we allow happiness in and share it with those around us. Have a beautiful day!
