Happiness, where does it live?
Am I happy? My first response is ‘No’ but when I seriously think about it there are many things in my life that give me a sense of what happiness is.
Happiness is doing something for others, giving a gift whether small or large or of oneself.
Happiness is sharing other’s happiness.
Happiness is seeing a long lost friend.
Happiness is eating your favourite meal with family, chatting, laughing and loving each and everyone of them.
Happiness is getting through a dialysis session with no problems.
Happiness was getting THAT phone-call the one that made your heart beat faster and made you smile as wide as an ocean.
Happiness was sprinting 100 yards and not feeling out of breath.
Happiness was taking your first bike ride/roller skating and not falling.
Happiness was sitting next to Dad in the car going for a drive, just you and him.
Happiness was holding Mum and Dad hands’ and being proud ‘these are MY parents’
Happiness is seeing the happiness in living and endeavouring to make it better each day.
And last but not least happiness is having that mug of tea while on dialysis!!
There are many more ‘Happiness is’ these are just a few that came into my head today. I don’t know what made me think about it, feeling down, alone. Sometimes the spur to pick oneself needs to come from within. Love to hear what ‘happiness is’ means to you.
