Finding Happiness?

As Human Beings we have  dealt with all kinds of adversity, whether they be Natural disasters or Personal Tragedies. Finding Happiness through adversity is part of the Human experience to endure these and continue on, for our own sake and for future generations. During the lowest points in our lives we always have Hope, Hope that the bad times will be over soon and Happiness will return to our lives. Its seems to be the way as a species we balance things out to provide a way forward. Like the classic picture taken during the Battle of Britain, where the milk man is delivering milk, while stepping over the rubble of what was a neighborhood, He has the look on his face of almost a smile, as if to say “seems silly but we will survive”. People have found solace in the fact they are not alone, throughout history, events and tragedies have befallen all those who walk before.  It is in the wisdom of the words they have left for us to tell their stories so we can understand.

Happiness Came in on a Cloud?

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.

Happiness is the Reward

Our history as a species, tells of Disasters, Famine, Disease, and Decades of War.  So much suffering inflicted upon us by Nature, but more often by ourselves. We each possess inside us the potential to create Misery or Happiness, Love or Hate, to do Good, or to do Harm. It is when we lift ourselves above our basic instincts to a higher level of understanding that we can feel the satisfying emotions of Love and Happiness. Happiness is the reward of allowing ourselves to open up, to expose our inner self, while the eyes maybe the window to the soul. A true smile is the barometer of your emotions, it disarms the World around you. As if to say you know I’am alright!


 We convince by our presence.

There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.                                                                                                                                              

-Han Suyin                                                                                                                                                                    

We all Carry the same abilities to Love, and seek Happiness. It is the core of who we are, what we truly seek in out lives. We long for those moments that we felt truly Happy and they are ingrained in our Memories. That when thought about later in life bring back that smile like a snapshot in time, forever filed in the Library of our mind under Happiness.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.
