Let's Just Be Happy Today.


We all have good day and bad days. To pretend that life is only good, that it is only light and easy and stunning and happy, well, that's just stupid. Because it's not. It's hard sometimes. We all have days that feel never-ending and days that feel more like a vacation. Life is a mixture of ups and downs. 

I think there's a chance in every day to be happy. Sometimes that comes easily, and sometimes we have to go hunting for it. But it's there, always. So today, I think you should be happy. 

Grab a large sweet tea from Chick-Fil-A and stroll the aisle of Target and be happy. 

Read a book outside in the sunshine and be happy. 

Call up an old friend and meet for lunch and be happy. 

Curl up with a cup of coffee and your favorite blanket and be happy. 

Watch a movie and have popcorn and wine for dinner and be happy. 

Because, after all, if you live in a world were there is sweet tea and Target and books and sunshine and old friends and coffee and blankets movies and popcorn and wine...how could you not be happy? 

Wishing you a day full of happiness, wherever you may find it.

  5. One of my favorite things to do is go to my patio and listen to audiobooks while rocking in my patio chair. It's definitely something that makes me happy.

  19. Couldn't agree more! There are days that things don't go our way, but we can still create our own happiness. Life is how we make it. Balance is important too.

  20. That's one of the reasons why I love keeping a gratitude journal. You start to notice all of the simple, yet wonderful things in your life that really do make you happy! I think I might read a book in the sun today with a Chick-fil-a Lemonade!
