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
feeling appreciated..appreciating myself
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.
