day 12: something that makes you happy.

i had some fantastic moments of happiness today, thanks to my love. we laughed, cried, hugged, held on to each other, enjoyed music (she played & sang. i listened), played games, and just soaked up some moments of this saturday together. you know, we say this to each other all the time, but… i never get tired of her. never. being with her, spending time with her, makes me happy.

living in the moment, focusing only on today, helps us to find more moments of happiness even in the midst of pain, confusion, fear, and sadness. true happiness comes from soaking up a moment and letting our attitudes be ones of grateful joy, appreciating & not taking for granted anyone or anything.

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
Christian D. Larson

hope your saturday has been filled with some happiness, even if it’s only in a few moments found here and there.

peace & love.
