Searching for happiness

As I cleaned out my notebooks last night, I came across one that had musings of mine in it, and thought I’d share this with you.

I was answering questions from a book I have, and the one question was “What is your idea of perfect happiness”. My answer back then still holds true today.

Perfect happiness is an anomaly. I don’t believe there is such thing as perfect happiness.

I do believe that there is contentment and happiness. But nothing in life is perfect. That’s what makes it grand – we never know what’s around the corner.

My idea of happiness is doing things I enjoy – whether it’s the most mundane day – I can still enjoy myself and be happy.

Happiness is a mindset. People who have nothing are often happier than those who appear to have everuthing.

So – take a moment today, this Mother’s Day, and find something around you to do that makes you happy, and relish in it. Be happy – no need to strive for perfection.
