Happiness is an early Sunday morning stroll.
Happiness is visiting the little local coffee shop.
Happiness is sunlight streaming through the tree branches.
Happiness is giving without expecting something in return.
Happiness is taking my time.
Happiness is knowing I am loved.
Happiness is music that resonates with my soul.
From time to time, we will become caught in the trappings and demands of the “outside” world. During these times, we forget what is important to us. We even forget who we are.
We can break free from these negative loops by slowing down and experiencing fully the tiny gestures and small subtleties that make our lives beautiful. What truly makes you happy? What ever your answer – go out and experience it and you’ll remember what is important; you’ll remember who you are.
