Happiness can take on many forms...feeling the wind in your hair, enjoying a picnic with your family, letting go of old anxieties, forgiving a wrong...and with it comes a lightening of spirit and an opening of the heart and mind.
Happiness begets happiness...the more you cultivate, the more you experience. But how do you find it in the first place? Besides vowing to laugh more and smile for no reason, researchers have discovered that relishing life's simpler pleasures and countering disappointments with positive thoughts are key tools in the quest for happiness.
So count your blessings, always be on the lookout for new sources of delight, choose to perceive happiness where you might not have before, and write your own happy ending.
