I like to people watch. My favourite time of year to people watch is in the summertime. I am fascinated with legs of all shapes and sizes and summertime beckons skirts, shorts and dresses onto the runway of life.
I also like to watch faces, to see if they are happy. I have written about this before.
If you smile at someone who looks unhappy, they will most often smile back at you. This is a great habit to get into. I bring this up because I often observe that in a place on earth with an abundance of…well everything that marks a high quality of life, people are very unhappy. Often in the first world we get caught up in all the levels of stuff and end up living focused on lack without even realizing what we are doing.
I say, bloom where you are planted and make the best of what you have, right now today, and see where that path leads.
I would love it if you left a comment listing a few things you are grateful for. Immersing ourselves in gratitude leads to greater happiness and that is just what my Happy Boxes project is all about.
May we all BLOOM into our best lives as we journey through the garden. – Lisa
