Where do you find happiness?
For me, happiness is found in nature. Nothing is better than walking in nature and appreciating the energy, sounds, smells, beauty, and feeling of everything.
On a mindful walk with my dog, taking nature in, observing, noticing!
I find happiness when I tap into my inner little girl. She finds delight in the simplest things; this transforms the entire world into a place of beauty!
When I wake up without pain, see my lovely daughters, see my dog after work, and when my husband hugs me.
Do you believe money can buy happiness?
Is happiness a state of mind?
Does happiness depend on external circumstances?
What made you happy today?
Passing the day with my husband. I don’t need external things to make me happy.
Watching my friend’s little boy just be a little boy, having fun.
Sitting outside an Italian grocery store/deli in the sun, eating lunch with my husband.
Sitting outside on my deck this morning drinking my tea and thinking of my grandmother.
Taking care of my inner self.
