Today I caught myself smiling for no reason… then I realized I was thinking about you. -Author Unknown

Jolene wrote a great post today, about what makes you happy each day, and it got me thinking about what’s made ME happy today.

Today, I am happy for the sun and the fresh air coming through my patio doors. I’m happy for the new summer dress I’m wearing, and the oversized glass of wine in my hand (well okay, I put it down briefly to type this). I’m happy today that my music is loud enough to drown out the sound of me singing along (if you were here, that would make you happy too)…

…and lastly, I’m happy because in his small, subtle ways, a man has put a smile on my face… and even if it were to never progress past just that one smile, having someone to secretly (not so secretly? ;) ) adore, is blissful.

Today, is a great day.

I get the best feeling in the world when you say ‘hi’ or even smile at me because I know, even if it’s just for a second, that I’ve crossed your mind. -Author Unknown

  1. Aw, so glad my post inspired yours!! And well, that’s just fantastic that a man – ever so subtly – can put a smile to your face. Must be a good man. (may borrow your quotes at some point, love these!)

  2. Wow, I think of myself as a generally happy person I suppose. Stopping to actually voice what makes me happy was thought provoking. It’s usually the big things that jump to mind. What if, like my life right now, you aren’t experiencing any “big things”? Does that mean I’m not happy? I certainly hope not. I’m going to try to think smaller. Like your glass of wine. I’ve always admitted I definitely like that glass of wine but never went as far as to say it makes me happy. But, thinking on that and actually picturing the glass you describe, I realize that, yes, it would make me happy to have one right now. Just to savor it slowly. Thanks.

  3. I *love* that second paragraph about the things that are making you happy, right now. Happy for the sun, for the fresh air, for the music. Those are wonderful things to be happy about.

    As for the boy, I hope you find one that makes you happy, but even if you do — the only person who can really make you happy is yourself. You have to find the happiness within (at least, that’s what *I* think…you don’t have to agree with me :-) .

    Found your blog by link hopping, and quite enjoyed several of your posts. Hope your happiness continues!

    • Thank you for your kind words :)
      I am all about being happy on my own- something I strive for every day. Someday, a man will add to my life I’m sure, but I’m happy just the way things are! :)
