FFF Happiness

on February 12, 2016

Are you happy?  I had a young man ask me this in my college days.  My response was an automatic YES!  Then he would say are you really happy?  This would give me pause, because I wasn’t.  My grandparents had passed away within one week of each other and I was grieving and I didn’t know how to grieve.  My grandfather had been an important figure in my life.  I had been afraid of my grandmother for years…but now, I see I am more like her than I would have ever imagined.

I finally was able to work thru that grief and happy I was again.  I consider my self very upbeat, I hate to use the word bubbly, but I’m sure I appear that way at times.  There’s so much I want to say about “happy”  Happiness comes from within.  No one can “make” you happy.  Your happiness like your dreams are each individual’s responsibility.

I am filled with happiness most days.  I mean overflowing, especially when blogging, practicing or sewing. It’s like I’m doing what I was put on this earth to do and I am successful doing it.  Is there a magic formula for happiness?  My guess would be balance.  I love my life.  Happiness can be influenced by outside forces.   Dealing with horrific events, sickness and death suck the happy right out of you.  That’s when you seek your friends and loved ones.

Happiness is best shared with others.  Right now speaking of happiness, I’m about to burst out of my skin.  I want everyone to be happy.  The best image of happy to me is Snoopy doing is little happy dance.  My favorite “happy” song?  This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, way beyond the blue!

My parents were happy people.  They always had a smile, kind word for everyone they saw during the day.  I guess they passed that on to me.

Would you describe yourself as a happy person?

God Bless!
