Fractions of Happiness
Thursday, April 10, 2008
I was out pulling weeds; grabbed hold of a blackberry vine by mistake and had to come in and start plucking out little tiny thorns!!! And NO, I was not wearing gloves; I like to get dirty! Tomorrow I will pay for having played, but that is okay; I was happy. I will recover, and then I will play again.
"The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions - the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look, a heart-felt compliment, and the countless infinitesimals of pleasurable and genial feeling."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I really enjoyed my little fraction of happiness today; after I recover from playing today, I will be back out there gathering more fractions!!! We all need to remember that while we may, at times, be a little broken, in pain, sleep deprived and sometimes depressed; we have each other and can learn to cope with the support offered here on SP. I have learned that laughter helps lessen the pain, lift the depression and gives me energy I didn't know I had. I take "fractions" of happiness from here EVERY day ~ may you all do the same!
Find a reason to laugh, smile when you would rather frown - turn your own world upside down!!!
