Tales From the Chair: Little Bits of Happiness

by: Colby Kauffman

Everyday, as I scour the web looking for interesting things to post about, I run across a few of these pictures. They’re signs or little pieces of advice that pop up like presents on the screen. These life lessons remind me to stop and enjoy life. They remind me to step away, ask me to change my perspective or give me reason to laugh.

What I love most about these signs, though, is that they touch each person in a different way. Though we’re all connected and though we often share similar interests, it is our life experiences that will ultimately draw out a different emotion from each of us.

Happiness, Joy, Strength, Love (DB), Positive Attitude…..I know a talk a lot about having positive emotions but I truly believe it is the key to a joyful life…Let’s talk Joy and Happiness…two of my favorites…the secret to happiness is the realization that life is a gift, not a right.

There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough. When this happens, concentrate on the present.

Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow. There are constant signs all around us in our daily lives, look for them, read them, share them….Enjoy Life! You can see here in this post, are some of my favorites I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
