I had a very hard time trying to find a good title for this post. I kept wanting to have something more catchy or descriptive but after all was said and done: Happiness is what I wanted to talk about.
I am not planning on giving you the key to eternal Happiness…I just don’t have that power. I simply wanted to share with you a few things that make me happy. No worries it won’t be a long boring list, but simply odds and ends of happiness.
Happiness is: Food; making a meal so delicious that my family/friends tell me 2-3 times during the meal how much they love it….even better: the day following said meal my daughter looks at me and randomly says: “mom, last night’s dinner was so good, please make it again soon”…..aaaaaaahhhhh 🙂
Happiness is: our family fishing vacation; I simply love being on our boat, relaxing and fishing with the people I love….even better: thinking we only have 1 day left to our vacation only to realize we have 2 days left!
Happiness is: listening to good music while I run….even better: halfway through my run, just when I think I can’t take another step, I hear a great song and the music helps me push through the pain.
Happiness is: my daughters saying: “I love you”. It doesn’t matter when or why but the girls have always been in the habit of saying: “I love you” when we either hang up the phone, say goodnight, get out of the car…etc…even better: as a substitute teacher, sometimes I will sub at my daughters middle school (soon one in high school!!!) and they will actually say: “I love you, mom” in front of their friends! I even get hugs!
And finally Happiness is: being called Aunt Isabelle…I know it’s a weird one, but I can’t help feel tremendous happiness when I hear my nephews say: Aunt Isabelle….” even better:….OK, nothing beats that, it’s perfect, I love being called Aunt Isabelle 🙂
So that’s it guys, no big discovery just simple things in life that make me happy. I have learned a long time ago that complicated is certainly not the key to happiness. I would LOVE to hear simple things that make you happy. Please share them with me/us!
Have a sweet beautiful day,
Peace and love,
Random Trivia Time 🙂
