I want to thank Katrina Perkins (actress and one of the quizzers on Million Second Quiz) for finding the first of these inspirational quotes for me today. I appreciate that, thank you Katrina.
When things happen to us again and again, we say that we are doomed to that, but are we? Or do we just let it happen because it is what we are used to? We can change that by not allowing it to happen. It is not an easy task, but sometimes, happiness takes hard work so we can sit down and say “I did that!” That, I believe, is one of the most rewarding things we can do. When we create something and it gives us a smile, that gives us happiness. Sometimes even in a relationship, it is not automatically happiness for ever after. The fairy tales don’t tell of the bills that come in, the shopping, the cost of living, the dirty nappies (diapers), the screaming children, the lack of sleep, but the rewards are good if you see it through and work at it.
In some cases, happiness is like a raindrop falling from the sky and landing in a puddle, causing ripples to spread outwards touching happiness to all along the way. In others, you have to find the water first. When you do though, it is the most wonderful thing there is.
Be happy. Be you.
