Wildwood : Happy Wanderer

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

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.

Blessings to you and I’d love to hear from you via comments!

    Rainbows, painting with watercolors, the naughty face of our little puppy, coffee; lots of coffee, clean sheets, writing in my journal, changing of seasons, lavender, blogging, comments, flowers in my garden….
    And my gratitude journal, a collection of all sorts of little things that make me happy 🙂

      Oh, what a nice list! Clean sheets… I LOVE that one too!! I love the snow too, when we have a decent amount of it. 🙂

    Funny, you published this on my daughter’s 4th birthday, and she makes me happy every day! As does my 18 month-old daughter, my dog, my writing, my books, my crafts… my stash of pretty papers and cardstock makes me very happy!

      Ah, so you make your own cards too!? Fantastic! And your writing is enjoyable to me too! Is your youngest daughter rant 18 months already?! Yikes!
