Ripples #705: Accepting Happiness.
For our tribe of 31,836 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Happiness does not have to be deserved,
earned, worked for or paid for;
it simply has to be accepted.
-Robert Holden, submitted by Jen at Marian University, WI
Happiness cannot be
traveled to, owned,
earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the
of living every minute
with love, grace and gratitude.
-Denis Waitley, submitted by Janeth in Glendale, AZ
Here we are, diving into the hustle and bustle of the holiday season which, for many of us, includes the stress of end-of-semester studying and/or end-of-year reports. Amidst all the cramming and stressing and wrapping up, remember that there is joy to be received right here, right now. This is true even if life isn’t perfect, and even if life is down right poopy! I hope you can find a quiet moment to take a few deep breaths and experience a happy moment or two. Accepting the gift of happiness will make the next few weeks bearable, and perhaps even enjoyable.
