Thinking about Happiness Today

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home. ~Johann von Goethe

Find a quiet moment to sit down and feel peace. Drink a cup of tea, slowly, and think of the peace present in your home!

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves. ~Victor Hugo

And we are all loved by the greatest of loves. Today spend some time thinking about God's love for you. Just for today, love the yourself and others.

Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy!~ Anne Frank
What a dear soul. Imagine the conditions Anne Frank was living in when she wrote this. Pause for a moment,right where you are, and find something beautiful. If you can get outside, look straight up at the sky and marvel!

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. ~Allan K. Chalmers
Just what Charlotte Mason said to do!

Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have. ~Rabbi H. Schachtel

Consider starting a gratitude journal if you don't have one already.

Happiness is finding two olives in your Martini when you're hungry. ~Johnny Carson

Isn't this the essence of happiness? Finding joy in the little surprises sprinkled in our days.

Wishing you gratitude and joy today!
