H is for Happiness



Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.

Happiness depends so much on how we look at life each day. I choose to be happy - life is too short to go around looking for gloom. I keep ahead of it!

Jo said...

O' yeah!...my motto:keep a smile on your face,and always look ahead!

HAPPINESS!!...life is too short not to desire happiness every second of the day.

Our bloggy buddies makes us happy! And you "teacher" "host" are a treasure!

And now, Missy, why does your state insist on making my home smell like campfire?
I figured, what the hey, so we are having s'mores tonight. I am praying for a quick-er end.

Hi Jenny,
Been awhile!! lol
I think that is a great quote, I also think happpiness comes from being grateful for all we have and focusing on what we do have, not what we don't have, and not comparing ourselves to others, or being jealous of what someone else has. We need to rejoice with those that rejoice and
mourn with those that are mourning.
I think most people do well with the mourning with the mourning, it is the rejoicing with the rejoicing that causes trouble. lol
Hard to be happy for someone that has something we want, but we must learn how, that is part of the living with love!!
Hope you are doing well hon,
blessings, Nellie

Only a man could write "living every minute with love, grace and gratitude" when he is cleaning the floors, dusting, laundry and taking care of sick kids and husband.(with grace !)lol !

Happiness is very much an act of will. Sometimes, you just have to decide to be happy in spite of everything which is going on (and sometimes, that can be pretty near impossible for a while).

Oh yes!
And I would add to it that not only is it an experience, it must be practiced.
