The Dalai Lama knew you had to make your own happiness.
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
That’s why I’m making a list today. I’m acting to find happiness! This morning when I woke, I had a lot on my mind. I’m thinking about my marathon on Sunday. A MARATHON IS A MONSTER. School has started, and I have 23 assignments posted already. That actually kind of excites me! I’m having period cramps, which is not uncommon lately. With menopause comes a LOT of the red stuff OFTEN! But I’m begging the gods to smile upon me and stop the flow until Monday! A marathon and a period in concert makes monster-killing much more challenging. yikes.
So I had to act fast today … Here’s my list:
- No red. Yet.
- A blogger in India connected with me! INDIA!!!
- Perfect coffee. Hot. Smooth. Not bitter.
- Hanging with my girlfriend tonight. Joyfulness.
- Gonna’ lie on the grass today. And nap. Just like Juniper. That cat.
What’s making you happy today? I’d love to hear … your happy stuff makes me smile too! Act now!
