Chickens scratch the dirt with their curious claws looking for something that will make them happy—an unfortunate bug perhaps, some grains embedded in the soil, or a wiggly worm. Sometimes, we are like chickens. We tend to scratch surfaces to see if what’s beneath will make us happy. We tend to dig deeper to find happiness.
But do we really have to look far beyond?
Try walking or jogging at the park.
Try hearing a baby laugh.
Try cuddling for an extra hour in bed with your loved one.
Try giving someone a hug.
Try giving someone a compliment.
Try throwing someone a smile.
Try getting into bed with freshly washed covers.
Try having a quiet moment with yourself.
Try having dinner at home with your family.
Try playing with kids.
Try throwing yourself into a hammock.
Try checking your cellphone. There might just be a text message from a dear friend to warm your heart and brighten your day, like the one I received this morning.
Trust me, these simple things always work wonders 😉
Have a lovely weekend, dear friends. Spread happiness!
