“Be happy. It’s one way of being wise.” – Colette
When I read this quote two more came to mind. Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise! Then the song started to play in my head by Public Image Limited, Johnny Lydon, “Is everybody happy“? Yesterday I was meeting with a group and when I walked in one of the ladies said, “alright it is time for our happiness session”! I remember thinking early on in my life, “I just want to be happy”. I believe joy is what we all want in increased measure.
What is the difference between happiness and joy? I believe that happiness is a feeling and joy is a state. I have been unhappy in my recovered life but the joy of living is constant. It offers me the hope of the future. It keeps me balanced and allows me to put one foot in front of the other each and every day. It is the awareness that when things are going wrong I can still smile and be grateful. I can still be excited about life and the future!
Life is gooood!
Go, Go, Go…
