I’m all for working hard–absolutely–but sometimes we forget the balance. Not so much this new generation, but definitely the Boomers–we were focused on our responsibilities and it was easy to forget about balance. The question of how to be happy hardly ever arose.
But that question is answered all of the place today. These how-to-be-happy reminders are sold just about everywhere in one version or another, but this one has to be my very favorite because it’s mostly about laughing and playing.
There’s nothing better than fresh air, the sun, a breeze. There’s a reason walking outside is often prescribed for depression.
Smell the roses
Eat a cupcake
One won’t kill you. Seriously.
Sing loud and proud.
Don’t hide your light–shine it so that everyone can appreciate it. Who are you? Sing it out and don’t apologize!
Dance in the rain.
If you’ve never done this, I highly recommend it. Of course, we haven’t seen rain in a very long time here in northern California, but when we do? I’ll be dancing in it.
Listen and learn.
This one’s all about paying attention. If we pay attention to what’s around us we can’t help but learn. If we’re willing.
That’s our Sunday inspiration here at Heart-Mind-Soul. I’d love to hear yours, below.
