What is happiness? I have found my answer in life’s simple things.
Many folks think of striving and achievements. This often brings moments of happiness. Often, I have discovered that real happiness is such an intense emotion that it cannot possibly last on that high plane.
It lessens and then can lead to a flat feeling. A bit like a burst balloon.
Contentment and gratitude for what I have around me has surprised me by moments when I can truthfully say……..
I am happy.
Writing is something which brings me happiness – not if I’m looking for success or acclaim.
The joy of a beautiful notebook, a pen with flowing ink, a page decorated with images of beauty and life – these are things which make me feel peaceful and contented.
In that place. I can again honestly say.
IN MY soul is at peace. I am happy!
