I’ve been taking advantage of the slower pace of summer to do some de-cluttering. While I was sifting through a stack of outdated magazines, I came across this question in the January 2011 issue (yes, things have really piled up around here) of Real Simple:
What is one small thing that always makes you happy?
I love questions like this because they force me to be mindful of even the wee things that impact my life and emotions. Today, my hydrangea bushes are my little source of happiness. I currently have four plants which are in various stages of bloom: one mophead (full bloom), two lacecaps (just beginning), and one PeeGee (not yet). This morning I indulged in a second small happiness by taking some photos of the beauties.
Happiness is not a station you arrive at,
but a manner of traveling.
