You know the rest....Clap your hands..
It is Saturday, I am up before sunrise and I could not get this HAPPY thought out of my mind.
I was asked the other day if I was HAPPY? Of course the person asking me knew very well the answer.
Did you know that we all are born with what we call a SET POINT, we are born with up to 50% of the HAPPY GENE... Another 10% comes from our situation, we love our home, family, job....the other 40% we call this INTENTIONAL ACTIONS, meaning we create another 40% by being involved in a community such as our Quilting community, we celebrate our friends, we surprise one another with lovely notes, gifts...
There are many medical studies on DEPRESSION, we know what causes it, we know how to treat it, and we can recognize someone who is depressed by miles.
Listen I used to sell many anti-depressants...
It is a blockbuster class of drugs...meaning it is worth billions to the pharma industry..
BUT do you know what the NEW DRUG OF CHOICE is today...?
PEOPLE want the HAPPY DRUG!. Is there such a thing?...welllll not really..
There are drugs that are mood altering..but they are not lasting...
Do you know what is LASTING....?
YOU! you are the DRUG!, Your friends, (sometimes family lol) but most of all YOU
is the DRUG. YOU can create the HAPPY GENE....you already have up to 50% in your
genetic make up.
If you ask people what they want most of out of LIFE = it is to be HAPPY.
If you are reading this, this post today, you have basic needs...
YOU have a roof over your head, coffee in hand, ( well I do)
water, food, family friends....
YOU have the foundation....all you need is permission to be
Do something that will make you HAPPY..
Treat yourself to your favourite treat,
be it coffee, baked good, pancakes, go window shopping,
go on a date with a loved one, be it child or spouse or friend..
spend some time with YOU, sew up something for YOU....
Tell someone "they rock your world", they complete you,
they make you a better person...
I guarantee TODAY YOU WILL BE
There is a flow to being HAPPY,
once you begin your spiritual passion
of gratitude you will be HAPPIER
On a personal note, I could not be HAPPIER,
I am doing what I LOVE every day...I spend my day
with all of YOU, and my sweet family.
I was told many years ago, "LIFT someone else up
and your feet will never touch the ground..."
She was soooo correct! I have been floating ever since!
My happiness comes from being your CHEERLEADER!
If I had but one week to live, I would still be here writing this
Since I was introduced to quilting shy of 3 years ago....
I have been such a HAPPIER person...
Thanks to YOU!
