Happiness Happens Month...What Makes You Happy?

 

While trolling cyberspace today I discovered that August is Happiness Happens Month. There actually is a Society of Happy People that sponsors this and other initiatives to bring happiness to others. 

 

This year’s theme is Operation #SmileStarter. The post I wrote yesterday is about sharing our smiles with others. 

 

be happy

 

They say that Happiness Happens but I’m not sure about that.  There are people, events, things, animals, nature...you name it...that have the potential to make us happy.  

 

But it’s up to us to choose to be happy...to choose to have our eyes and hearts open for happiness. 

 

So since August is Happiness Happens Month...what is it that makes you happy?

 

Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.   Abraham Lincoln

It makes me happy to seem people smile and doing well.  I am always happiest when I see the people that I care most about doing what makes them happy!

It's hard not to feel happy when one feels gratitude.

Hello Kathy,  I agree with Abe Lincoln on his quote and will have to keep that one.

Happiness is a choice. We all have the choice to be happy. People and things that we cherish can add to that.

Kathy for me happiness is being with family, as well as just sitting back on my couch watching a good ball game.

Carol Culkin, ReeceNichols you are so right.  For the majority of us, no matter what we're going through, it could be a lot worse. 

Donald Urschalitz that has to be an exciting time for the whole family!!!!  Maybe you'll be able to visit him on campus.

Morning Kathy.

My kids smile, the grand-kiddos, the great ones as well.  When I make a good golf shot, when I win at the casino.  The last and most important one, when my wife smiles at me.

I often think of the words in that quote, Kathy.  But, somehow, it had escaped me they were from Abraham Lincoln!

So Abe was a motivational thinker!!  How about that!  Thanks for the post.  I have found some out there to be deserving of happiness, sort of a God given right.  I don't think that's how it works!  Thanks, Kathy

I happen to have a past client who works as happiness researcher at Stanford.

Never met a retired professor from UC system whom I showed homes on a bicycle.
