What makes you happy?
Here are some things that make me happy:
A kiss from my husband in the morning.
The sun shining.
Seeing wildlife while taking my morning walk.
Watching Winnie the Pooh.
I grew up on the famous A.A. Milne series. Every time I read or watch Winnie the Pooh (and his many friends), a smile spreads across my face. It brings me back to a simpler time, my childhood. I smile to myself and everything seems right with my world.
I love the above quote. Eeyore says life is good, especially today because it’s Friday. For those of you who are not familiar, Eeyore is a somber character. He has troubles keeping his tail on, his house standing and many other things that bring him down. His voice is low and sad.
But every once in awhile, he finds a balloon or a field of dandelions and is happy. He doesn’t jump up and down. He doesn’t scream excitedly. He slightly smiles to himself and revels in it.
We could learn a lot from Eeyore. Life can throw a lot at us. It can be easy to be down and out. But we have to remember to find what makes us happy and enjoy.
Find what makes you happy and hold onto it, even in the tough times.
