What is Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on having more things, getting your own way or doing what you think it should. Happiness comes from knowing that while we cant make an unhappy person happy, we are constantly and inevitably affecting other peoples wellbeing. All our encounters with others lift their spirits or lower them. Taking this power seriously is a crucial way of growing into our highest potential. We need to shift our thinking from 'What will make me happy?' to 'How can I most positively affect the world around me?'. Being a source of happiness, support, interest, comfort and wellbeing for others will transform our own lives.

A Beautiful Day!

I love this time of year. The sun is shining. The air is still and peaceful. Its a beautiful Autumn day and its good to be alive to enjoy it.
It is school holiday time here in Australia and for the next two days I have 2 of my precious grand-daughters staying over with their Nar (thats what they call me). Apyrle who is 8 has stayed over many times before. Kathryn who is 3 in 6 weeks, this will be the first time she has been away from home overnight. So when night time falls it will be anybodys guess as to whether or not she will be happy to stay with her Nar and her Aunty Nae (my yongest daughter Rennae)and not want to go home to mummy and daddy. But until then I am going to enjoy the lovely sunny day with them and worry about all that later. Whatever happens it will all work out fine. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing I wish you all an awesome day.
