What Makes You Happy?


So many articles have been written about happiness and how to find it.

What is happiness for you? I think it’s a personal thing.

When I was ten years old, I asked my mother what happiness was for her. Her reply was so simple that I was confused by her answer.

“I am happy when all my children are here at home, and the bed sheets and pillow cases are all newly washed.”

Wow, I thought that was easy. She could just wash the sheets anytime she wants to be happy.

If there’s something I learned from that memory, it is that happiness can be found in life's most simple things.

If we have the habit of seeing the beautiful in the mundane, we will often find happiness... if it doesn't find us first.

It’s really a nice habit to cultivate.
