Musings Gratitude Day 52

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.

Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Today I am grateful for Happiness

“The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.”

― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Happiness is like floating on air

after experiencing

the depths of despair.

“Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.”
― Steve Maraboli

One of my intentions

is to be peaceful.

“I have set inner peace as my highest goal, and I organize everything in my life around that.”
― Clyde Lee Dennis

By pursuing peace,

I found happiness.

“I think and think and think, I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”
― Jonathan Safran Foer

I have always been

an over-thinker.

Until now.

My peace depends on

thinking with my heart

instead of my head.

Hundreds of times

each day,

when anxiety strikes

or I look past today,

I stop

and bring myself back

to the present moment.

The present is

all I am guaranteed.

Coming back to the present,

to my center,

helps me

feel grounded,

peaceful,

and therefore happy.

XO Lisa
