I mean like a lightening bolt -- it hits you and you just feel you might burst because you are enjoying something so much. Do you feel that?
For me, it was only a few moments ago! And to be honest, it happens many times a day.
Today I took joy in the clothes I am wearing -- I feel great in my tank top!
I have just eaten my breakfast.... strawberries are just divine this time of year. Mmmmmmmm. Am I making your mouth water?
And I'm looking forward to seeing a friend later today that I haven't seen for many months -- this will be a great cause for happiness. I can't wait to give her a hug!
If you look around, you will find so many reasons to be happy and feel joy! Maybe you are tired and need to just close your eyes and feel the sunshine on your face for a couple of minutes. Or if it is raining.... let the rain dance on your face - this is exhilarating!
Getting these bursts of joy doesn't happen by keeping your head down and waiting for life to surprise you, or for something really great to happen to you. You can have those lightening bolts of happiness every day just by looking for them.
“Any pleasure that does no harm to other people is to be valued.”-Bertrand Russell
My top tip? Start actively looking for one great experience every day. If you are looking for it, it will come to you. (Probably more than one!)
