Happiness Lies Within

“All the happiness you ever find lies in you.”Anonymous

Happiness is free and available to all of us at any time.  I have discovered that true happiness comes from some of the smallest of things and is usually right at our finger tips.

Here is my top ten list of the things that make me happy (in no particular order):

  1. Feeling the warmth of the sun shining on my face.
  2. Sharing a laugh with my daughter.
  3. Completing a task or goal.
  4. Seeing the love in my man’s eyes.
  5. A hug from someone I care about.
  6. The smell of fresh-cut grass.
  7. Walking barefoot on the beach.
  8. Knowing that something I did helped someone else.
  9. Spending time with my friends.
  10. Meditating.

Happiness come from the inside not the outside.  Take a few minutes today to think about those little things that bring a smile to your face.  What can you do right now to bring a little joy into your day?

Wishing you much happiness and success!

  1. I think it was William James who said that the chief desire of all men is to get and keep happiness. Since then, tons of psychological studies have been conducted to determine just what creates this great feeling, and it seems that it’s not related to fame or fortune but to satisfying relationships, a strong faith, and a sense of gratitude.

  2. My greatest joys come from experiences rather than things. And what I appreciate about that is that is it can be repeated!
