I have been reading the book "Simple Abundance- A Daybook of Comfort and Joy" by
Sarah Ban Breathnach and have found it is very thought provoking, especially todays thought. How Happy are You Right Now?
I decided to list 10 things that make me happy in one minute. I was very surprised how easy this was and even more surprised that my list didn't contain anything "material".
1- A smile on my husband or son's face
2- A family gathering (that is not for a funeral)
3- The "belly laugh" of a baby
4- Warm spring days
5- The smell of the library
6- The smell of fresh baked bread
7- The sound of frogs chirpping in the spring
8 - An unexpected call or card from a long ago friend
9- Flowers blooming in the spring that I forgot I had planted
10- Knowing that I will be reunited in Heaven with my loved ones who have passed on, when my time on Earth in done.
Pretty simple. Just like me. I know people who are never happy. I can't imagine living like that. I have had my share of grief and tragedy in my life, but through it all I have kept my faith. I guess that would be the number one thing that makes me happy. Faith.
My challenge to you is to do the same thing. In one minute, write down 10 things that make you happy. Bet you'll be surprised!
Have a great day
