<today’s daily prompt entry!>
What does “happiness” look like to you?This, is a hard one! Sometimes I think…I am surrounded by happiness. I am pleased so easily. Love abounds and all that crap. Other times…I am not sure I have any fucking idea what “happy” is, to begin with.
When I am not down and lost though…it’s all the little things, really. The little things are really what matter…
Like…when you’re standing outside in a bit of sunshine on an otherwise cool day and it just warms you to the core…that makes me happy. The simple things the pets do – the way they look art you so unconditionally with adoration…so much happy. The way I feel whole when I am held tight and soothed…all the happy.
So keep your eye out for the little things. The look in her eyes…the first bloom of a flower in spring…the feeling of a gentle cool rain on a hot summer day…when you stop and take it all in…the world isn’t quite all that bad. Harsh, confusing, painful – yep. But full of potential just waiting.
