This week, we’ve The Wanderer and the prospect of new beginnings come to hand. So, let’s take a leap of faith and let’s go find happy!
Finding happiness is a journey, it’s moments here and there that make us happy, it’s not a permanent state. However, we keep thinking that it is something we must be in, permanently. I’m happy now, writing the blog with my toddler daughter sat next to me as she watches her cBeebies programmes. Not something she gets to do when her big brothers are around!
The Wanderer from The Wildwood reminds us to take a leap of Faith, which in itself can be frightening and certainly not something that makes us happy at the time. However, it does lead to being happy, perhaps, if we can be brave enough to step out onto that rainbow bridge.
Sometimes, we can’t stay where we are, either in a career, a job (no, the two aren’t the same), the home environment. Things change and we have to find our moments of being happy when they occur.
What makes you happy? Do you have a state of happy in your life? What is it? If you don’t, what do you need to do to go and reach it?
What is happy? For me, it’s the moments that make you smile, lift your spirits and make your soul soar. A beaming smile from a toddler can do that, a hug from a grateful big brother, a hot cup of tea after a cold morning in the park. There are so many little things that can make me happy, I wonder, what yours are? My daughter has just found out to hit tubs and tins with her hands to make a noise… I’ve a drummer in the making!
So, this week, share with me what moments make you happy, then I encourage you to wander off and find more, different, happy moments. Yes, different ones. That’s the adventure, finding more.
