All About Happiness ~ #1

Starting a new series about Happiness. The thing we all strive for in life.

Very often we have to go through some downtimes. At our darkest moments, what we need most is motivation and encouragement.  

Inspiring quotes can change your way of thinking and help you get away from negative emotions. This has helped me for many years, and continues to do so every day. 

If you, or your friends, are feeling lost, maybe one of these quotes will give you a helping hand.

Also sharing a bluebird photo from days gone by. My Bluebirds of Happiness. No nests nest for this year but I keep hoping.

I will start with this quote, it really means a lot to me…

If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap. If you want happiness for a day — go fishing. If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else. ~ Chinese Proverb

  1. “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

    Abraham Lincoln, the former American President, (1809 to 1865) apparently said this one.

    His quote inspired me to write this cryptic Senryu poem:

    Senryu: Happiness

    Our happiness is,
    not all all that we expect,
    unless we expect.

  2. “In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
    ― Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg

    finding the way to happy can be hard, but when we get there, the best thing to do is reach back and help the next person climbing!

  3. “Happiness does not come solely or primarily from human relationships. God has placed happiness everywhere, it is in every experience. We just need to be brave enough to resist old habits and embark on an unconventional path.” Alex McCandless

  4. Alexandre Dumas
    We often walk past happiness without seeing it, without looking at it, or if we have seen and looked at it – without knowing it.
    That’s why we have to create it ourselves.
