I saw this on the walk home Sunday afternoon and stopped to snap a photo.
happiness is pool time with friends on a Summer Friday (office closes at 1:00pm), followed by taro chips with guacamole, and blueberries all day everyday.
happiness is heading out on Saturday night to meet friends for dinner.
(we dined at Vinegar Hill House in Brooklyn – amazing food. highly recommended.)
happiness is a playful husband who makes every occasion fun, even waiting for over an hour for a table.
happiness is an impromptu get together with friends on Sunday afternoon to watch the Euro Cup – go Spain!
happiness is working for a company that delivers fresh flowers to my desk each week.
it’s been about 3 months since we left Dallas, and so much has happened in that time. new city, leaving my job with lululemon, the accident, a new job at Integrative Nutrition, a lot of fun with new friends, and exploring NYC with B.
there have been stressful moments (expense from the accident), homesick moments (missing my family), frustrating moments (my bike being stolen), and so on (I’m still really hard on myself at times). I have a level of happiness, based on consistent thoughts of gratitude, that I never want to lose. it takes effort.
some days the happiness comes with more ease than others. but at the end of the day, if you’re doing something you love, spending time with people you love, and making healthy choices for your life, happiness is inevitable.
you just have to remember to acknowledge it.
how’s your happiness these days?
