Happiness Is...

Thursday, May 20, 2010

OK, so on my journey to work today {in between jamming to all my beloved get-up-and-get-your-day-going-music}, I couldn't help but stop to think about the joy of happiness in life...do you ever just sit back and think, 'wow, how lucky am i'? God has blessed me beyond measure and sometimes, I can't help but think He has me thanking my lucky stars each and everyday for the talents, gifts, and people--it all really humbles me, to say the least. 
To Me, Happiness Is...  
Having that one person to come home to each and every night that makes life worth living
Having parents that have always gone above and beyond... the ones who were at every dance recital and softball game, the ones who showered me with love so I always knew I was #1, the ones who let me make my own decisions {and were there to pick me up when I fell}, and the ones that will love me no.matter.what.
 
Having best friends--and confidants--that I can share my deepest darkest secrets with and know they won't think any less of me.. The ones I have grown up with and the ones that will be a part of my life forever
Conquering your fears and meeting your goals and never giving up
because you know you can do it

Having a home to come home to that you can't stand to be away from...
decorating it in your style and making it all your very own

I know, a little deep philosophical post for today, right?? Sometimes I actually need to use my blog as a jounral and today, that is what it's about for me...just a way to get out all the emotions I'm having. Complete and udder happy happy joy joy. So, what is happiness to you???
