Recognizing and Appreciating what you have

“Happiness is an attitude, not a condition. It is cleaning the Venetian blinds while listening to an aria, or spending a pleasant hour organizing your closet. Happiness is your family assembled at dinner. It’s in the present, not in the distant promise of a someday when..”

How much luckier we are – and how much more happiness we experience – if we can fall in love with the life we’re living.
Happiness is a choice. Reach out for it at the moment it appears, like a balloon drifting seaward in a bright blue sky.
