Is there really a secret for everyday happiness?
One powerful and available secret for everyday happiness seems to be gratitude.
It costs nothing and can be accessed by any of us at any moment, at any time, and on any occasion.
It frees up our energy immediately and puts our focus on what is half full instead of what is half empty.
Powerful stuff as this creates an emotional and spiritual connection to all of life in the now, that we can experience, this very moment.
It can also remind us about the wonderful feeling of joy, such as we see in children, that can still be possible for us as well.
Possible and available for us also even as we lead our busy adult lives, while creating and sharing our world with others.
And what is happiness for us anyway, except experiencing the ongoing magic, wonder and joy of living?
The joy of living with thanks, humor, along with appreciation from an open mind and open heart.
