Happiness is Within

Happy Monday =)

Your mind helps to create your experience.  Choose your thoughts.  Allow the ones that hurt or cause stress to go... blow 'em out with your exhale or write 'em down and shred the paper.  Then think of what makes you happy.  What makes your eyes sparkle and your smile grow?  What gives you a sense of joy deep within?  Maybe you are not able to enjoy these things right now, but the thought of them will lift your spirit and brighten your light.  Here's a sampling of what makes me happy:
Ride the Horse - Giddy Up!

  • Mornings
  • Smiles
  • Sunrises
  • Giggle - from lil kids & big kids (the adults)
  • When someone asks with genuine care, "How are you?" or "How are you feeling?"
  • Yoga
  • Lakes, rivers... any body of water... sometimes even a puddle
  • The colors pink & purple
  • Flowers
  • Colorful food
  • Conversations with a friend
  • Hugs
  • Kisses on my cheeks
My Niece Mallory & I - happily fed
What makes you happy?  Take a minute... no need for more and bring to mind a few things that make you happy.  Even better if you close your eyes visualize one or more of them - see, feel, hear whatever it is.  Imagine it is your present.  Then open your eyes.

Happiness is within...
