Some of you have not seen your family for some time and look forward to spending time with them for Easter. The subject of this week is then found: Happiness!
Especially because some people recently asked me how I was doing to be so madly and openly happy. Well, life is too short to be wasted being bored or complaining. Go out, explore, discover, be curious, adventurous. Happiness is everywhere and closer that what you think, just open your eyes and your mind.
Despite hardships and a broken heart, I’m trying to enjoy every moment of my life. I can’t talk about happiness with a big H because I’m still broken and rebuilding myself, but every day there are little things that make me smile and laugh. These things make me feel alive and put all together, yes I am happy. There is no room for plans or doubts in my mind, one moment after another I take what life gives me and I smile it back.
On March 20, it was the International Day of Happiness and many events took place around the world. This day was created by the United Nations in 2013, which sees the pursuit of happiness as an essential human goal. Do you know that Bhutan uses a different index than Gross National Product (GNP) to measure the standard of living? They have been using Gross National Happiness (GNH) since the early 1970s. So, what are you waiting for being a part of this wonderful international effort??
For my part, here are the little secrets of my happiness:
A jazz concert with my best friend
Riding a unicorn on a summer afternoon
A coffee on Kokkini Hani beach with friends
Drink champagne at breakfast
The kiss of a new lover on my collarbone
Play Can’t stop the feeling! when I wake up
The sunshine on my skin in early spring
Dance all night and go to bed at sunrise
Have an orgasm of vaflaki (name of a dessert)
A dried flower in a notebook
A cup of tea at Tekoe-Madrid (Spain)
My happiness is made of little things, find yours and share them in the comments!
I wish you all a Happy Easter and don’t forget to be happy!!!
A very appropriate song: Don’t Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin
