Choosing to be happy

What is happiness?

It's an attitude.

It's the moment you are in and your decision to enjoy it.

It's my daughter's smile, a conversation, an opportunity to be more, a heart full of hope, love and dreams.  It is, as Martha Washington tells us, "determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition."

These two quotes below absolutely sum up my own ideas of what happiness is.

  1. You're completely right! I too believe that happiness all depends on you and how you choose to look at life. You can anxiously wait for something better to come along, or you can live in the present and be happy with your life today. Two beautiful quotes! Thanks for sharing them on the #candidcuddles linky! xx

    1. Thanks for hosting! It's not always easy to live in the present, but I think having a small child helps - they live so completely in the present! You just have to join them.

  2. Absolutely, it is all a matter of your mindset & attitude. Choosing to be happy is a life changing road. I love both of these quotes, they are just perfect! Thanks so much for linking up with #candidcuddles x

    1. I'm glad you like them. I find at the moment it's something I have to keep reminding myself to do, maybe eventually it'll become second nature. Thanks for hosting!
