Seeking Happiness, Life Is A Bowl Of Cherries ~ Lisa Loeb

I love this image!  I believe we do need to seek for Happiness. Happiness is all around us, and we miss out on a lot of joy if we don’t keep our eyes open for it. People get complacent and take things around them for granted. As the leaves turn to red and gold are you appreciating the beautiful world around you? Do you appreciate the people that surround you, and do you recognize the happiness they bring into your life? What about Music, Art, A warm bed to sleep in, or meaningful work. Our lives will be so much richer if we just seek a little more earnestly and realize what we have.

It is also incredibly important to realize that Happiness Is a choice. Choosing how to respond to situations makes all the difference. I could choose to get upset when someone close to me makes a negative remark, or I can choose to look past it and try to help my friend if they are having a hard day. I can choose to look forward to going to work on Monday morning or I can choose to dread it. Either way I need to work, but one way I am happy and another not so much.

Life isn’t always a bowl full of cherries, but it is up to us to make the most of it, and when we do that we are happy.
