Finding Happiness

In my discussion group we talked about finding happiness in the little things. Happiness is an accumulation of things.

You can’t wait to see how the day goes to tell if you’re going to be happy. You need to make a decision to be happy when you wake up.

I’m not saying that things might not interfere, they probably will, but starting out happy is a good place to begin. Then you can take joy in each small thing to add to your happiness.

For me it begins with my morning walk with my husband and dogs. (I am back to walking after months of inactivity.)

I love having a cup of tea. It’s so relaxing. This makes me happy.

When I write I am happy that I am creating a new world.

My dog lying on me first thing to give me a hug and puppy kisses makes me happy.

My husband stealing my space in bed makes me happy. (Don’t tell him.)

All these little things add up to make me happy. I just need to remember to appreciate them. If I do that they will carry me through the bad days. Even when my head is in a bad place I can change it by remembering this.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita

  1. Hi Rita! Isn’t it hard sometimes to find the happiness in the day? Definitely hard for me when it snows and my body doesn’t want to work. I have a beagle puppy who I call my soul dog and it’s amazing when he can tell when I’m down

    1. It can be. When I used to live in Ohio, I would find peace in the snow because it was beautiful for a little while. I don’t like it, or what the cold does to my body, but it’s beautiful to look at. So, just the small things can bring happiness.


      1. Oh believe I know. Snow is coming in tomorrow and my body is horrible today. Knee hurts so bad I can’t even put pressure on it. I can send some pics from the last snowstorm if you are missing it 😊 I put my Xmas tree out back and put lots of bird feeders on it. Soo many bird everyday. Looks so pretty with the snow
