A Little Happiness


We say that all we ever want is a little happiness, but is that true?

The Demands
Life can get hectic. Very, very hectic. It can lead us down paths of frustration, fatigue, and exhaustion. It has a way of doing just that.

Between getting the kids off to school, working all day, getting a good workout in, making meals, cleaning up, and just the normal stuff of the day, all we want is a little happiness.

But is that true?

The Truth
What we say we want and what we actually want seem to be two different things. We picture a week in the Bahamas or a day without any work, demands, worries, or stress or having loads of money to do whatever we want. But is that “a little” happiness? Maybe what we’re expecting is some oversized happiness.

Instead, maybe we should focus on just what we say we want: a little happiness. Maybe we should find joy in the smiles of our kids. Maybe we should stop doing more often to start enjoying. Maybe we should find ways to have more fun when we are doing.

Maybe we should simply enjoy a little happiness.

A Little Happiness
In life, it’s not the weeks of outrageous living that get us through the week; it’s the little pockets of happiness we find throughout each day: The kudos we receive from our boss. The laughter of our kids. The feeling of accomplishment when we make something great. The moment of rest at the end of the day.

These are the little bits of happiness that can fill our world with joy. We should sit in them, bask in them, and soak them in.

Life is not about the huge indulgences. If you want to enjoy life, find a little happiness.
