The theme this week is happiness and I was a bit surprised by the volume of quotes on happiness – I think the most of any of the topics I’ve selected – which then got me thinking about why – and why was the pursuit of happiness put into the constitution?
It’s something humans crave – something we want, need, can feel and experience.
When a person is happy – others feel it, want it, draw near to it – it’s like a warm, glowing fire that others unconsciously seek.
Happiness – something there are a lot of quotes about and yet – not all of us know how to be or how to feel happy continually. Many more of us don’t’ spread happiness so what are we spreading?
B.C. Forbes said, “A happy man or woman” said Robert Louis Stevenson, “is a better thing to find than a five-pound note. He or she is a radiating focus of good will and their entrance into a room is as though another candle has been lighted.” Learn to be cheerful and you will come near being happy. Life’s race can best be run with a light heart and a buoyant countenance. Cheerfulness will open a door when other keys fail.”
Isn’t it funny that this quote has a quote in it? That makes me happy!
What if today you spread a light heart and a buoyant countenance?
By the way buoyant means – able to float – pushing upward – I think of bobbing to the top or righting yourself and the dictionary suggested it’s being quick to recover emotionally.
Think about what that would do to your relationships and loyalty? What would happen if every time you walked into a room you were radiating good will and happiness? What if you were buoyant?
Remember You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!
Go make it a Magnificent Day!
