Happiness…

So many things in life can be frustrating – I’ve listed my own peeves here before- but nothing in life combats frustrating like happiness.

As Oscar Wilde says, “With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?” Happiness is the most powerful antidote to all that is negative and destructive in our world. Choose it. So many things may be frustrating, but so many more things are beautiful, inspiring, stimulating, encouraging… Happiness is powerful.

Earlier today I opened an email link to the Happiness Advantage (good work Mrs. W…) which served as reinforcement for what I already believe to be true: happiness is a choice. It feels good, it helps others, it heals the body and it wields power.

“With freedom, books, flowers and the moon…”

What is making you happy today?

Flowers opening up daily in my garden… Flowers popping up daily in the school hallways…

Choose happiness. Not every day will be perfect, but every day is a new day, with a new chance to create happiness for yourself and others…

“Tomorrow is fresh with no mistakes in it.” (Lucy Maud Montgomery)

What happiness can tomorrow bring for you? What happiness will you bring to others?
