Bit of Happy #144: A Sweet Saying

16 Apr

“If you live to be one hundred, I hope I live to be one hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
-Winnie the Pooh

A coworker of mine shared this quote with me not too long ago, and I thought it was too ADORABLE not to share with all of you.

And sorry for not posting on Friday and waiting until Saturday. Now that beautiful weather has hit my hometown, I’ve been absolutely miserable. It’s a very bittersweet couple of months. As much as I LOVE when the warmth of the sun begins to melt away all of the ice and snow from winter, spring also means allergies. And allergies, I don’t love. Not in the least bit. Thanks again for you patience!

I hope today’s quote warmed your heart just as it did mine. Have a GREAT rest of the weekend! Hopefully some of this rain will wash some of the pollen out of the air.

Bit of Happy #115: Never Let You Down

7 Mar

This is the song I love to listen to when the weather starts getting warmer. When the snow begins to melt and the golden sun colors the fields and trees with new growth. “Never Let You Down” by The Verve Pipe is one I’ve listened to for a long time now. It’s inspiring and new. Exciting and comforting.

So take a moment to listen to the song and tell me what you think!

“Never Let You Down”
by The Verve Pipe

“I’m trying to keep my feet on the ground.
I’m getting to like this feeling I’ve found.
I’m getting to love
The thought of having you around,
And I will never let you down.”

The budding of a new love explained through these words is quite perfect. It describes that special feeling. The feeling so light that you wouldn’t be surprised if you were walking on air. The belief that you could begin getting used to that kind of happiness. And ultimately, the commitment to the other person that you’ll never let them down…

I hope you like today’s song as much as I do! Share your thoughts!!!

Bit of Happy #113: The Beautiful Dreamer

3 Mar

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

As beautiful as new fallen snow, the future blossoms from those who believe in possibility and chance. Embrace your dreams. Build them into your destiny. What you make of your life belongs to only one person. And that ONE person is YOU!

I love today’s quote because it seems to live and breathe optimism. All you have to do is believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams, and they are ready and waiting to come true.

What are some of your dreams? What’s are some of the most important things you want to accomplish in your future?

Bit of Happy #112: Pursuit of Happiness

2 Mar

“Some pursue happiness; others create it.”
-Anonymous

Whether pursuing or creating, achieving a lifetime of happiness is an accomplishment in itself. There are definitely difficult times in life. Times that you can’t even imagine being happy. But it’s those who go out and pursue it, it’s those who go out and create it when it’s no where to be found… those are the people who make a difference.

After the tragedy of 9/11, it’s the people who supported the families and communities surrounding them that were effected. When hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, it’s the people who traveled short and far distances to help rebuild what was once there. When you are having a terrible day, it’s the people in your life that go out of their way to put a smile on your face. It’s the people who – when there’s no hope in the world – shine their brightest.

It’s those people who you are forever grateful to have in your life. Don’t forget to thank them for all that they do, because it’s those people who clear away the rainy sky and fill it with a burst of sunshine.

Bit of Happy #69: There’s Always A Way

17 Dec

Little Snowman Ornament
(I just thought he was adorable!)

“When faced with a challenge, look for a way, not a way out.”
-David Weatherford

I know the photograph of the snowman is a day late considering we got all of our snow yesterday, but I’m sure there’s still snow coming down somewhere where someone will see this post! So in which case, this snowman is for you! And as for everyone else, here’s to hoping for more snow soon! (Minus the new worry of having to get to and from work safely.) But not even that can change my love for watching the snow fall!

Anyway, now for today’s quote! The sense of positivity in light of being faced with challenges is certainly a new, sometimes difficult concept to adopt. A lot of the time, we shy away from obstacles, whether in fear of failure or the unknown. But instead of avoiding those fears, Weatherford encourages us to do the opposite. Find a way. Face the unknown.

When going through your day, keep this quote in mind. Try overcoming the given challenge and don’t give up until you’ve found the right path. It may take a few times to find the way, but once you have, you’ll be stronger, wiser and better off. As long as you don’t run the other way, as long as you don’t find a way out of facing the challenge, you will learn. You will progress. You will grow. Even if you fail the first time, you pick yourself up and try again. Until you find the way, you never give up. And isn’t that what life’s all about?

I came across this quote yesterday and felt that it was just too good not to share on Little Bits of Happy. I hope all of you have a great and safe weekend! Happy Friday! Happy Holidays!

Christmas Countdown: 8 more days!
