I was reading a book tonight that asked the question “Who is the happiest person you know?”
And the crazy thing is…I was a bit stumped. I mean, I know some happy folks…but seriously, we all whine and complain and get angry occasionally. That is human you know! But really…the happiest? My mind scrolled through family and friends and colleagues…children I know and former students… I really could not determine the happiest person I know.
And that made me kinda sad. I am blessed…the people I know are blessed…and yet we complain. We are moody and crabby. We get ticked off over silly little matters. We have soooo much to be happy about and yet we get caught up in the mundane of life and forget to spread our joy.
I am determined to look for happiness…and to share a little of my own.
Who is the happiest person you know?
