What really makes us happy?
Giving? Getting? Something to do? Something to love? Something to hope for? That's just the big stuff! As most of us are beginning to realize, it isn't the big pleasures that bring the most happiness. It's making a big deal out of the little ones.
So, what's on your list? A glorious sunset? A bowl of soup on a chilly day? A kiss behind the ear? Breakfast in bed? A hug from a child? A few hours in a bookstore? A half-hour on the treadmill? Pasta with friends? A rooftop dinner? Receiving a love letter? Writing one? Getting an unexpected compliment? Giving one? A hike in the woods? Losing yourself in a good book? Meeting a deadline? Having your wish come true? Sharing the holidays with people you love?
Knowing it's Friday, and planning your weekend?
We all have our share of troubles and sadness, but we also get a shot at life's tiny delights, and the best part is, those tiny delights are everywhere and all around us.
Just think how happy you'd be
if you lost everything and everyone
you have right now...and then,
somehow got them back again.
