My Happy-Stuff

Happiness. Such a cute word, what does it remind you of? The word itself reminds me of Winnie The Pooh, of baby ducklings and huge dogs, or sunflowers and strawberry flavored hard-candy.

Sometimes, happiness misses it’s cue and comes a little later than you needed it, but there are things, special things,engraved in your heart, things that nobody can pull down, things that make you happy.                             Truly, Madly, Utterly, Deeply Happy.

-Watching Nature 
I don’t mean sitting in your room and waiting for your plant to bloom, I mean actually watching nature. See how the wind blows through the trees, watch ants carry crumbs twice their size around and wonder how they do it, watch the clouds drifting through  the sky like the oceans’ foam. Get up early to watch the sunrise, and stay up to catch the sunset. Count the stars and make a wish at a shooting star.

Nature is such a magnificent thing. But we are too caught up in our own lives that we forget that there is life everywhere around us.
