I turned over my calendar this morning and the quote of the month is this :
Happiness is not something ready made
It comes from our own actions
Now, although I have great respect for this man, I am not sure that the above is the whole truth. Happiness can be affected by many things beyond our control, events in our lives and those of our families, for instance. We can't feel happy all of the time either, so I think a feeling of contentment is the feeling to aim for and then happiness will be a spontaneous reaction to something really special.
I have resisted posting about any world news, especially the horrific happenings in Tunisia because it makes me feel unhappy and very uneasy. The news on TV makes me cry lately too so I watch just once a day to keep up and do not read newspapers. Outside events are beyond my control so I have to just do my best for others and the planet in my own little space. Personally, I think a better quote for me would be:
Happiness is a state of mind
Do you agree? Do you watch the news? or would you rather not know the worst?
On a lighter note, it seems that today will be a scorcher and, as you know, I don't do heat! I thought I would leave you with an image to cool you off...
