International Happiness Day is rolling through again.
I wonder how many of my readers have ever heard of it?
And if so, how many of you let it take hold? Frankly, I would hope this one day of the year is not the only one that makes you feel happy.
Personally, I like to feel that I am some semblance of happy everyday; or at least satisfied & content.
Come to think of it, that makes me happy!
But…is feeling content and satisfied with life, the same thing as being happy?
The bigger question is, how do we get to any of these places in our lives?
Research has shown that smiling makes us happy. Why?
Because our brain goes for it. A smile produces endorphins.
It also makes other people happy to see us smile. So, in a way our feelings of happiness can be duplicated.
So maybe if you’re not feeling especially happy, placing yourself in the path of somebody that is will help.
Just don’t follow them around all day. That would be creepy!!!
Helen Keller once shared a thought about holding on to happiness. As we all know, it can be fleeting.
However, we’d do well to let go of any bit of happiness that escapes us, and move on to the next moment in time so future bits of happiness can arrive.
So I’ll ask you again…
Are UA happy camper?
Moments Along the Way!
What’s In Your Collection?
Have you embarked upon life’s journey in such a way that you feel happy to be here a little bit more everyday?
I’ve got a BIG smile on my face just thinking about this quote. And, as scientific research has proven, you know what that’s creating.
Wherever you may be in the world near or far, I hope you feel the joy that finding a bit of happiness in your life each and every day brings to not only you, but those you choose to share it with!
