Happiness is simple.
Maybe I should say it like this instead-Simple makes me happy.
Simplicity makes me happy.
I am not saying that happiness is easy. (But it definitely isn’t as hard as people make it)
I am saying that keeping things simple is a key to my happiness.
I can say this as a fact:
I AM TRULY HAPPY
It’s that simple! Or maybe I’m simple (okay I know, enough of the word play with the word simple)
I am happy!
Definition:Happy-characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy.
I am content, I am joyful, I love my life!
I am grateful!
Happiness is a choice, it is not a destination. I decide that I am going to be happy and it’s not some place that I am going, it is right where I am.
I FIND JOY WHERE I AM.
That is what brings me contentment.
I find real joy in the everyday. Simple things. Not in material worldly things like what the commercials on TV tell me I need to be happy, but in the amazing beauty of the gifts that my God has given me.
First and foremost, the gift of salvation. I have the gift of eternal life because my Savior died for my sins.
I am surrounded by things that make me happy. That brings me joy. I take the time to appreciate them and that is another key to my happiness.
Something else that I find joy in that makes me happy is- sharing it with others.
That can be done in many ways. Some as simple as just smiling at someone while I’m out and about or telling my kids a goofy joke(I have a lot of them). But I feel that I share it the best in my photography.
No, I am not a professional photographer, I am just a simple county gal who sees beauty in the world around me and I try to capture that to share with others. Most of the pictures I share here on the blog I took on our farm. The picture below I took over looking our farm, I finally found the perfect quote to describe it and that makes me happy.
Perfect isn’t it?
Don’t get me wrong my life isn’t perfect, no one’s is, but it is perfect for me.
I choose to roll with the punches, to find blessing in everything and
I choose to be happy.
I am not perfect, I am perfectly imperfect and I am perfectly happy.
Isn’t that simple?
