Happiness Is…

“Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you.”

~Nathaniel Hawthorne~

I’ve always known that life is about the little things. During my two weeks away from the computer world, I was able to relax, meditate, pray and focus my attention on each activity without the pull of all my social media responsibilities nagging me in the back of my head.

So I thought I would share with you some little things in life that you should recognize and appreciate whenever possible.

“You need to let the little things
that would ordinarily bore you
suddenly thrill you.”
~ Andy Warhol ~

Appreciate that the small moments in life are really what make up life. If you don’t enjoy the little things, all that is left is the daily grind, disappointments and struggles. Take the time to recognize the moments of life that add happiness and warm your heart with gratitude.

No matter how many negative experiences threaten to destroy you, keep it all in perspective because eventually, “This too shall pass.” The little things will remind you to take one day at a time and that life is worth living.
