Happiness Makes the World go Round!


  • Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.
This is a great, great reason to live. Right here. Just being able to wake up each day knowing that you may have an opportunity to smile. I don’t know about you, but when I get the feeling of happiness nothing could be better! I hope that this weekend, each and every one of you felt that smiley strike I did.
It could have been anything really. Maybe you woke up and just felt really rejuvenated, or else maybe you met someone this weekend who seems sweet and you would like to get to know them more! The possibilities are endless.
The reason why I chose to say a little bit about happiness today was because I am in a very happy state of mind right now! Sometimes, it just takes one little thing to make everything you know appear a bit brighter. Never underestimate the power of a few words, or a kind gesture that makes you smile. Never underestimate the power of a smile itself…..It is true what they say about smiling being contagious. Have you ever caught yourself in a down mood, but suddenly someone nearby shares a laugh with a friend or maybe smiles at the waitress walking by? All of sudden, you feel enlightened and like a bit of weight has been lifted off your shoulders. You might not realize it at the time, but that is the power of people together. Think of a placebo effect as well, mind over matter. If you think you are going to have a good day when you wake up, you probably will. There could be some bumps along the way, but overall you will feel content at the end before bed.
My weekend turned out to be very good. There were smiles, laughs, fun times, memories, friends, and music that made it all worth while. What is the point of this particular post? I am simply just hoping that by reading this and feeling the happiness radiate from these words that you will get a grin or a chuckle out of it. If not, you could always resort to the newspaper for the funnies! I want you to go to bed tonight though with a smile on your face. You will sleep better, feel better, wake up happier, and will live longer. Don’t let the little things in life get to you. Remember to look for a light, and no matter how bad something appears to be, one smile could change the situation right around.
Take care,

What about all of those words?

Hey guys,

Have you ever truly wondered about what words mean? They could mean tons of things of course, from conveying an upsetting event that has passed, or to suggesting two people spend the rest of their lives together. Words are a really powerful device in this world today and I just feel like I should write about them a bit.

I have had many incidents where I have said something and then later, kick myself in the teeth after thinking of something else I could have said that would have portrayed my emotion much better. Really, aside from facial gestures (though they speak 1000 words themselves), you have your word choice by your side to influence and create anything you desire in this world. This world is a blank book, a large book for that matter. If you were to be the one peering into it from above as an uncertain identity, you could read a large history of people that have made the world shake, lovers who have gained, those who have lost, and peace that has been made just for a few examples. Now, is that not the most incredible thing you have ever thought about?

Imagine a world where people could not speak. Do it, right now………………………..How did it look to you? Were there a lot of happy faces? Were there movements and divisions? Were there technological advances, food sharing, a clear set of who was on top and who was on bottom? I would like to know from you how the world looks without words. Reply in the comments box; I am interested to see what people say (using words).

This really all came about just because I was thinking…..of course, as usual. One thing that is said to me from a particular person can have entirely different value to me from another person who says the same thing. How it is said, what the person looks like when they are saying it, and the amount of passion and emotion I can receive from the individual makes all the difference to me. There are people who I want to tell me certain things, and must wait for that moment. Then there are also other people I hope that never tell me other certain things.

In the life we live, one word, one sentence, one empowering vocal release of one’s self can change just so much in an instant.

Take care,
