Are you happy?

What makes you happy?


Is it the fresh smell of waffles and eggs in the morning?

Are you happiest when you’re singing your favorite song at the top of your lungs?

Is it found while sharing eye-watering, gut wrenching laughter with friends?

Does it lie in the moments you've made a precious goal a reality?

Is happiness in the sun? The clouds? The air?

Or do you feel it when you’ve simply helped someone else feel happy?

It wasn’t until I sought out the things that bring me the most joy and started doing them did I truly FEEL happy.

I've found happiness in the stroke of my pen.

I am happy when I silence my mind through the art of painting.

I am really happy when a plate of grilled lobster, shrimp and plantains lies before me.

Food really makes me happy..... Sometimes I turn into the Cookie Monster as the  glorious flavors mesh with my taste buds sending my body into intense euphoria.

Happiness is a choice that it is within our control.

It is the state of well being that encompasses a good life.

You have the power to manifest happiness in all areas of your life.

By choosing to seek out what brings you the most joy and allowing yourself to consistently experience bliss, you can experience cycles of recurring happiness in all areas of your life.

“Once we recognize what it is we are feeling, once we recognize we can feel deeply, love deeply, can feel joy, then we will demand that all parts of our lives produce that kind of joy.”

– Audre Lorde

If you want to be happy,  just be….
