>So now we know the strength in Family, and that we are powerful beyond measure. So next is, be happy! My sis-in-love wrote a great post on it in her blog, Everyday Experiments. A short quote from it:
Happiness is power. Happiness is carbonated consciousness. It wants to spill out and radiate and be articulated. And every time we downplay our joy we confuse our synapses. Our brain is firing smiley neurons and our mouth is short-circuiting them. Repeated happiness muffling numbs our senses. If you keep it under the surface too long, it just might stay there – a light under a bushel.
So do us all a favour. No matter what the weather, the odds, the circumstances, the company, if you’re happy and you know it, by all means, say so! If You’re Happy and You Know It
Today I am happy. Thirty years ago today my world started, and every day has been a new adventure. Not every moment has been perfect, but it’s been a wild ride and I’ve loved living and learning through it. We took a bike ride this morning as a family, and I was once again reminded at how genuinely happy I am with life. Just like riding a bike, it’s tough sometimes and kicks my butt, I get tired, hot, hungry, and ready to give up, but it’s so worth it. Life is good. Life is challenging. And every challenge is met with an opportunity to learn, to grow, and to truly relish the happiness when it comes.
