I’m concerned about someone I love right now. I’m worried she’s unhappy and that her unhappiness is propelling her out of her current situation and into one that could be worse.
And thus, happiness has been weighing on my mind of late. Her happiness, my own, the happiness of the world at large. Yes, there have been some deep thoughts on the subject.
Happiness. It’s hard to measure, difficult to define and intangible. But I’m not here to write about this complex topic, all I would like to do is share a list with you today.
It’s my 100 words of happiness. There’s no specific reason for selecting 100 words, the number simply felt right. Your list may have more words, or it may have less. I’m aware that some of my words may not make sense to you and the list is in no particular order, although some words mean more to me than others.
What I do know, is that just writing this list made me very happy indeed. Now, if only it were so simple to help my dear friend.
