I once read a book with a quote that said “Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you; but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” This quote was written by Henry Thoreau. This statement could not be more truthful. It seems when we keep seeking happiness sometimes it gets farther and farther away from us, but when we focus on good things that make us happy we will be happy without effort. So today don’t go around trying to make everything so perfect, just do the little things that make you smile and happiness will come to you.
• Watch a funny movie
• Watch your favorite TV show
• Watch your kids play
• Cook your favorite dish or try a new one
• Play a video game or board game
• Go see a comedy show
• Plan something fun for the upcoming weekend
I pray this inspires you to be happy today. Create your own happiness don’t wait for someone to make you happy.
