“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” ~Albert Einstein
What are you doing that makes you happy? Look at the past month and ask yourself what you were doing when you were happiest, when you felt the most alive. Just think about it for a few seconds. Was it when you were eating some sweet ice-cold watermelon while you watched the kids splash around? Was it when you were laughing with a friend over something only the two of you would find hilarious? Was it when you were sitting by yourself reading a book that was so good you didn’t it want to end? Was it when you were walking in the woods with your dog? Was it when you were holding your baby? Was it when you were painting or writing or running or swimming or sitting looking out at the magnificent wonder of nature? Whatever is was, do it again. And, again.
Doing what we love and feeling the wonderful emotions of joy and appreciation will cause a spectacular domino of fun and happiness to fill our life. A waterfall of joy pours over you. A wave of fun carries you. A road of abundance is laid before you. In feeling happy, contented, and completely fulfilled we invite more happiness, contentment and fulfillment into our perfect life.
We are rewarded for accepting rewards. We get what we deserve. We get a life that is perfect for us. Do what you love. Wash, rinse, repeat. Often. And when, in your perfect life, you notice something that is making you feel good, remember it, do it again. When in your life you find yourself not so happy, remember that time and smile and the feelings will start, more happy memories will surface for you to enjoy, and the universe will respond. We can always turn our frown upside down with just a few thoughts and memories. Use you bongo for good thoughts and feelings. Love yourself.
