Happiness and sadness run parallel to each other. When one takes a rest, the other one tends to take up the slack.
– Hazelmarie Elliott
Happiness doesn’t always fall casually into our lives. It isn’t something that can be purchased at a store. Quite often it is experienced the most profoundly when it follows challenging experiences.
I believe that true happiness, and its even purer form, joy, is found in simple blessings – sometimes something as simple as watching the birds tracing each other among trees, dogs playing in the neighbor’s backyard, the cat resting lazily on the roof.
