“Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry.”
—Toni Nelson, Author of A Beggar’s Purse
Close your eyes and picture the following:
- A bird with a french fry
- A squirrel with an acorn
- A dog with a bone
- A cat with some yarn
- A baby with a toy
- A football fan with a remote
- A kid with a cookie
Note that these examples involve an external/extrinsic source of happiness.
Venture within yourself to where the intrinsic sources of happiness reside. Notice that many of the best things in life are not things.
Take a few minutes alone or with others to create a second list of intrinsic sources of happiness. Perhaps you can also expand the first list, just for fun.
Feel free to reply to this post with what you discover.
