Bit of Happy #129: Don’t Miss Out

25 Mar

“Plenty of people miss their share of happiness – not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it.”
-William Feather

Sometimes it’s difficult for us to realize what we truly have. If some of the most precious things in our lives were suddenly jeopardized, I believe we would see into a small window of what it would be like without them.

After reading that very sentence, it’s the things that first popped into your mind; those are the things that mean the most to you. And those are the first things you should put most of your effort into. Most of you heart into. Stop to enjoy and celebrate the days you are given.

Each and every day you are given with them should be a day cherished. So hug them a little tighter. Love them more than yesterday. Show you appreciate all of the little things they do.

Your happiness is all around you. You’re breathing it in, basking in its warmth. But until you take a moment, close your eyes and remember all of the reasons you have to be happy, you may let it pass you by.

Speaking of happy… Happy Friday!


Bit of Happy #26: Cheerful To All You Meet

19 Oct

I love how today’s photograph turned out!

“In life, you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.”

Speaking of heavy burdens, I’ve had quite the past couple of weeks. But because of some amazing people in life, I’m making it through. It’s nice to know I have shoulders to lean on when I need it. When I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, I have others that promise me it’s there. And with a little faith, all will be okay. And you better bet my shoulder, tissues and listening ears will be there waiting when they need it (which hopefully they never will). But I would never take what I can’t give in return, especially when it comes to friendship.

I absolutely adore this quote and try to always keep it in mind while going through each day. You never know what people are going through in the moments your paths cross; you never know what impact a simple smile and greeting can have on their day. Be mindful. Be aware. Respect others and never blind yourself of the fact that people all around you may be going through the exact same thing you are, better or worse.

Do you like this quote?
