Appreciation for those who bring us JOY

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom” ~Marcel Proust

Who made you happy today? Who in the last week made you smile til your face hurt, laugh til your cried, or left you chuckling to yourself hours later?

Two incredibly simple(though not always easy) ways of being happier yourself are captured in this quote.

1) Being grateful is profound.  Turning your attention and awareness to what is wonderful and precious in your life right now can bring an incredible sense of joy and awe.

2) Being kind to someone else.  When we bring kindness into an interaction, we infuse ourselves and them with Joy.  The same goes for being willing to receive kindness.  Receiving allows the other person to enjoy the act of giving.   Both can be challenging for some people.  (Especially the receiving part if you are a busy mom entrepreneur who thinks she just needs to ‘get it done’.)

Bring these practices into your life today, and notice what happens to your joy-o-meter.
