Be happy

I saw the following quote recently.  This I think sums up how those of us in the No Kidding community are trying to live our lives, and is relevant given my previous post about guilt.

So here is my thought for the day:

Don’t wait until you have no more suffering 
before allowing yourself to be happy. 
 —Thich Nhat Hanh

  6. A few years ago, near the end of my grieving, I gave myself permission to be happy. It's the best gift I've ever given myself.

  7. true, I also just read this morning (at Jewelling the Elephant):

    "Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine". ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Friday should be quote day, I reckon

    1. Ewww, just thought that's actually a bit 'choose to be happy'. Hmmmmn. Draw your own conclusion.
