Happiness

When You Realize

when you realize that money does not buy happiness, you will be rich indeed. Mercia Tapping

We all have basic needs such as food, shelter and health care. Money helps us put those fundamental life requirements in place. But after a certain amount of money in your pocket, happiness does not come from the relentless and insatiable pursuit of more wealth.

I have a very diverse group of friends. Some are fortunate to be incredibly wealthy, others have to think about every penny that they spend. But many of my poorest friends are incredibly happy because they have freed themselves from the tyranny of materialism.

We hear the term “retail therapy” and if any of us have tried that (I have in the past), we know that the lift it gives is so fleeting. Real happiness and being at peace with life cannot be found in a new piece of clothing or any other piece of new “stuff”.

birds frolic, why not you? Mercia Tapping

I think it is easy to forget the restorative nature of putting the chores to one side and just having a little fun. It is called having some balance in your life.

We Do Our Best

Filed in Friends, Happiness by on May 27, 2017

we do our best under the most stressful of times. forgive yourself for not being perfect. Mercia Tapping

Many of us have a strong streak of perfectionism. In some ways this is admirable, but in other ways it gets in the way and takes away from the feelings of accomplishment. I recently had occasion to cook dinner for eight, which turned out to be a culinary, and somewhat stressful marathon, since I had a large number of dishes. Afterwards, I found myself annoyed that two dishes, out of about fifteen, were less than perfect. But my guests were ecstatic and effusive in their praise. Then I pulled myself together and let myself bask in their compliments, and the memories of a lovely, sociable evening amongst good friends.

even in the blue periods of your life, there are moments of beauty. Mercia Tapping

I know all too well that there are life events that can bring you to your knees, as you struggle with adversity. You wonder when it will ever end, as the emotional or physical pain is crushing your spirit. One strategy for coping with this is to search out each day some little chinks of light, something that can make you smile, even for a brief moment or two. It is a reminder that a sweeter side to life does indeed exist. Nothing like focusing ones mind on the positive.

Dreams Are Like Flowers

dreams are like flowers. pick each one carefully. Mercia Tapping

I talked to a young woman this evening who shared with me all her hopes and dreams, and ways she intends to contribute to the world in quite remarkable ways. She was so clear, it was quite astonishing. And then she told me that her mother had been the sole breadwinner in a dead end job for 31 years and caregiver for a father who had got disability in the military. Her mother constantly had told her not to follow in her footsteps and to follow her passion, her dreams, and to get the most out of life while she was still young enough. This conversation made me smile.
