Happiness Is…..

What makes you happy?

Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 7.42.36 PMI’ve spent some time lately thinking about the things that make me happy because that is where I want to spend my time and energy!!!

I know that we have all heard the phrase – “Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to.”  I agree that sometimes we do have to do things that aren’t really high on our list of fun things.

However…..I think that the majority of our life should be filled with things we love and things that make us happy!!!

The things that make me the happiest have very little to do with material things (much as I love my boots and cocktails!!!) and everything to do with people!

Spending time at the end of the day catching up with my 3 favorite guys always makes me happy!!!

Spending Thanksgiving with good friends makes me happy!!

Phone calls with my sister and sister-in-law always make me smile!!

Knowing that we helped our newest tenant out a little makes me happy!

Running, even if it is slow, makes me happy!!!

What makes you happy?
Do you spend more time doing things that make you happy than not?  (that is my new goal!!!)

Happy Monday!!!
