I read this yesterday in Whole Living magazine and it really resonated with me. It feels so very poignant and accurate. I apologize for the lack of blogging this week; I have been sick with an awful head cold. I worked from home on Tuesday. On one of my trips down to the laundry room, I looked in the elevator mirror and smiled. A sudden wave of contentment washed over me. It wasn't from how I looked, per se (no makeup, hair au naturel) but rather the WAY I looked. There was a light in my eyes that shone brightly even through the sickness.
Happiness is a mood - not a destination. But it's also a journey. Figuring out how to be happy and what makes you happy. In many ways, that's what the recent past has been for me. Living on an even keel rather than a roller coaster. It's certainly not as dramatic, but it is far more enjoyable.
Whole Living had a great big section about happiness that is worth reading. In fact, I'll be packing mine up and mailing it to one of my favorite gals... Gotta spread the cheer!
I'll be on vacation next week but will have my iPad and will attempt to get a few posts up!
Bon voyage and wishes for a wonderful weekend!
