Happy 2014!!!

We all know what happiness is: “State of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy”.
But I like it better the way Henry Ward Beecher explained happiness: “The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things”. So I’m an artist. Happy artist! πŸ™‚ ! – because I’m happy without any special reason… Maybe not so extremely happy – like jumping all over… Ouch! πŸ™‚ . On the happiness scale 1-10 I am on 7. That’s very happy!
I’m happy that I can be happy without any special reason. πŸ™‚ .
I’m happy I am me – Oneanna65. πŸ™‚ .
And so on and on…..
And I wish that everyone can find happiness in this New Year! Happy New Year!!!God Bless You All!

  1. Great thoughts. I always think of how thinks were just for me one year ago in the hospital. Now I am back in full force enjoying life. Now I am a 10! But my wish is those close to me would not try and be so sneaky and be honest with themselves.

  2. I’m in general a 7 person also..glad to see another happy face there. I get stressed yes, I cry, I sceam, I yell…but Oh My GOD I loveeee Life and everything in it. *S*….can’t help but laugh…*LOL* Hope you have a great 2014 this year.

  6. thanks for liking my latest post, anna. glad to hear that you’re happy! for me, happiness mainly consists of riding a shiny new bicycle through a ballroom full of multicolored balloons (something i’ve yet to get around to doing). i hope you have a happy 2014 too!
