New Category ~ 14 to Infinity

In this prior post 13reasonswhyimhappy, inspired by Virtual Vomit’s Challenge, I was hard pressed to come up with 13 good things in my life.  VERY sad because that is far from the truth.  My life is fantastic.  Circumstances may not always be rainbows and unicorns mind you BUT … MY life is as GOOD as it gets.  I was jaded by events that seemed beyond my control.  My thoughts were weighing me down.  I know in my heart of hearts that my thoughts create my reality.  Being positive could only help but to turn things around.

I am not so naive as to think my happy/positive thoughts can magically control the universe or cure all that ails me though.  Yet they can surely alleviate some of the personal pain.  Buddha ways = zen and inner peace for me at least.  Let the shit storm swirl around me, I will only see what’s good.  And on that note, a new category was born.  Why stop at 13 reasons?  I plan to post one liners and other things that make me happy in this section.  Might not be daily or weekly but whenever the moods strikes and I need to get back to center, this is where I will come.

  1. I have my own little trick. Seeing or feeling something beautiful leaves us with a sense of happiness and hope. My trick is to find the beauty where it isn’t obvious. I have often found a bit of beauty in places other people find completely ugly or been surrounded by beauty where others are just bored. If you can:

    ” See a World in a Grain of Sand.
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower.”

    you’re there.

  2. This is perfect! A great practice. And an awesome pushback… though I applaud them for making the subject broach-able… I’m not too keen on how it will affect those who may end up internalizing the message.

    I will try this too! 🙂
