Allow the everyday things in your life to bring you joy - and they will. Being happy is a choice. It is true - there are times that are challenging when it is difficult to smile, we all have those. For the majority of the time though, there are things that you can find wonder and joy in and there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for.
What is you joy? Where does it lead you? A walk with my children in the neighborhood caused me to meet a great friend, a trip to a yard sale just yesterday brought me to sisters who wanted an artist to paint portraits of their family for Christmas, a casual conversation with someone at the post office turned into some great advice, and on and on.
What if we all thought like silly children sometimes?
