Look what flew into my studio the other day. I'm so thrilled to have this lovely reminder so close. And yet, sometimes happiness itself is like that saying 'so near and yet so far'.
When I looked in my trusty Meriam Webster dictionary for the word 'happiness' I found several synonyms: bliss, contentment, felicity, state of pleasure. Who in the world would not seek these beautiful words as a way to live?
My quotation of the day is from the Dalai Lama. This is a man who has lived with much sadness and fear and struggle and yet he still believes in happiness. With this little reminder nearby I think my actions are speaking.
"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions." - Dalai Lama
