this year’s gratitude month is being a little different. i really want to share what i’m grateful for by telling you about what i delight in, what makes me tick, what makes life good. and today i want to talk about seeking happiness. now note that i did not say by “being happy.” i’m unable to live in a state of happy all the time. for me personally, there are too many other emotions that come into play. i like to live in a state of peace and be seeking happiness all. the. time.
what does seeking happiness look like? well in the two moments pictured in this post…i’m seeking happiness. i’m spending time and energy in places with people who i love doing things that propel me toward happiness.
standing in one of the most beautiful places in the world in a place i’ve never been, in MONTANA? happy! holding my amazing friend’s 3 month old baby in a park on an autumn day, talking to my friend while the other kids run and play? happy!
seeking happiness is both in the big and small things. but its always in the simple things.
