Spring and what brings me happiness

IMG_7129

Luka and I have been walking every day, sometimes twice, on the trails behind our home. Spring is here.  I love being in a place with distinct season. The timing of the season allows us to savor and really appreciate what is unique and wonderful about each one.

Before my walk I read an article about the Dalai Lama.He was asked what the meaning of life was,; he answered “happiness.” Determining what happiness is each of ourselves is the hard part.

On my walk this morning I thought about what happiness is to me. Here’s my little list:

not feeling anxious

being outside with no limit on my time

seeing my dog happy

seeing the people around me happy, especially my children and my husband

being creative

feeling appreciated..appreciating myself

feeling healthy

dancing…dancing makes me really happy

finishing unfinished projects (actually it’s more like having no unfinished projects)

Today my laundry is on the line..I’m going off to paint and do some yoga..I am happy.
