A Day in a Sentence - Happiness

Happiness

I've been following for some time now a blog called "The Happiness Project", which is a call for enjoying life to its fullest.

Gretchen Rubin, in one of her posts,quotes Robert Louis Stevenson:
"The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed, from the domination of outward conditions." 
Happiness is about simple acts of joy that might happen here, there, everywhere. It is about finding our inner joy in simple acts.

Happiness might simply be meeting friends, watching your kids play, appreciating the sunset, being surprised by your friends on your birthday. Or it might take more grandiose deeds, like finishing some important personal or professional project.



We all have our own happiness motto. What is yours? What is your act of being happy?

Share with us your happiness motto in one sentence. Soon, we'll share our happy sentence collection with you.






Thanks to Bonnie Kaplan for inviting me for this week's A Day in a Sentence.

  1. I am passionately happy when I am with my nieces and nephews! They give me tremendous joy! Is it any wonder I teach kindergarten and enjoy young faces all day? But when I go to the core of my happiness, it's really about feeling peace. That is what I pray for. With peace in my whole being, I am happy all day and with everyone I meet.

    Seek peace, and pursue it. Psalms 34:14

  2. I think David Crowder sums it up best for me when he sings "Oh happiness, there is grace enough for us, for the whole human race."

  3. Like I tell my hormone-riddled, chock-full-of-drama students, "Happiness is a choice. Choose well." :D

  6. Happiness is spending time with family, holidaying, enjoying a sunny day, having a successful lesson but most of all enjoying every minute of every day, even the bad times. There is always something to smile about.

  7. A glorious sunset, a sudden burst of bird flight, the scent of violets wafting on a spring breeze fill me with a healing sort of happiness.

  8. Happiness is: What's coming just over that hill, around that corner, under that rock?

    Hey, that reminds me of a song..."Something's Coming...(West SIde Story)
