What makes you happy?
I'm convinced as we get older, we forget to practice being happy. Most of us work our 40 hour or more weeks, run kids here, there, and everywhere, and fall exhausted in to bed at night. But aren't we supposed to also be happy? Being happy is surely a great way to beat stress and feel good.
Last week, I went with my daughter to "Sea Camp" in San Diego. She and other 7th and 8th graders on her school's Knowledge Bowl team, worked hard all year fund raising, to spend 2 days in San Diego learning all about the ocean and Marine Life. I was able to go as a chaperone. Here is something from our trip together that made us very happy.
Other things that make me happy.
Sunsets, babies laughing, sleeping in, homemade bread, celebrating my kid's successes, beaches, mountains, holding hands with my sweetie, hugs, helping others, feeling close to my Creator, and lots more. What makes you happy? Take a moment this week, and do something that really makes you happy.
